How to get to

  • The home of different species, the environmental significance of which has earned it the classification as a site of international importance.

    Situada In the province of Badajoz, this SPA contains the lagoon system of La Albuera, classified of international importance according to the criteria of the Ramsar convention. Its natural wealth comes from the waters of the streams of Rivillas and Entrín, the bank of the river Limonetes, the river Guadajira and the Boo creek. And this is borne out by its aquatic habitat, characterised by temporary Mediterranean ponds and riverside vegetation, inhabited by the European otter and the Mediterranean turtle.

    However, these are not the only species you can find in this SPA, as it is also home to fish like the pardilla or boga de boca (Iberochondrostoma lemmingii), the calandino (Squalius alburnoides), the barbel, the spined loach and the Iberian nase. And it contains different types of birds as well, like the great bustard and the common crane.

    This protected natural space is distributed amongst the municipalities of La Albuera, Badajoz, Corte de Peleas, Entrín Bajo, Nogales, Santa Marta, Torre de Miguel Sesmero, Valverde de Leganés and Villalba de los Barros.
