  • Malpartida de Cáceres, the European town of the stork, holds an event that emphasises its ornithological richness.

    Since 1990, the town of Malpartida de Cáceres, the only Spanish town to form part of the International Network of European Towns of the Stork, holds an annual week dedicated to this kind of bird. The Week of the Stork is an event that started with the aim of building awareness on the conservation of nature and providing education on the importance of these birds and on the environment.

    An event that is an ornithological reference point as a tribute to the stork, a bird that decided not to emigrate and to become a real symbol of Extremadura and Malpartida. Dozens of these birds fly through the skies of this town, settle on the roofs of the town's iconic buildings and nest in exceptional natural surroundings such as the National Monument of Los Barruecos.

    A week with an ample programme of activities, furthermore, such as an international photography contest, conferences, exhibitions, making and placing nests, workshops, and also ecological and ornithological trails.
