This micro-reserve is also part of the Natura 2000 Network, as it is included in the Site of Community Importance and Special Protection Area for Birds of the Sierra de los Canalizos.

The locally called ‘bonales’ or ‘trampales’ are acid peatlands characterized by the presence of permanent or semi-permanent water; waterlogged soils in which partially decomposed plant remains accumulate. They usually appear on the slopes, and on the foothills of Paleozoic mountain ranges.

Its main value lies in its soil peculiarity and in the floristic richness of these ecosystems with special and highly fragile habitats. We can observe numerous species included in the Regional Catalogue of Threatened Species such as the different species of heaths, grasslands, and mosses together with carnivorous plants.
