  • Nature and ornithology in a city which is a World Heritage Site supporting sustainability and environment

    The ornithological and environmental wealth of Caceres, a World Heritage Site and the third Monumental Site in Europe, is the theme for this festival which takes place each year in May and which enables us to enjoy and discover the capital city of Caceres from a different perspective.

    Visitors who come to Caceres in the spring will be surprised by the number of birds which live in the city, whose spectacular towers are all adorned with storks nests. You will also see dozens of Lesser Kestrels in the old town or hear noisy flocks of swifts flying over the streets and squares of the monumental city of Caceres.

    The aim of the festival is to promote Extremadura's natural resources, in particular those of the capital city of Caceres, where three areas of special protection for birds meet (Llanos de Cáceres and Sierra de Fuentes, Sierra de San Pedro and the lesser kestrel colony of the Monumental Site of Caceres). An unimaginable variety of birds populate the skies of this city, including, among others, azure-winged magpies, storks, great spotted woodpeckers, kestrels, spotted flycatchers, robins, etc.

    Species that can be seen close up on some of the birdwatching tours which can be taken in the city. So, don't let this opportunity pas you by. Come to Caceres and enjoy the Bird Festival, which has a programme of activities to make your visit an unforgettable experience.

    A perfect idea if you are travelling with your family, as many of the events are suitable for all ages, such as guided and birdwatching tours through the Monumental Site of the city, workshops for the younger ones, dramatized shows and walks, and even the chance to take part in a photographic marathon.
