Complejo Lagunar de Pedro Muñoz

Add it to your travel notebook

The Pedro Muñoz lagoons have been declared a Biosphere Reserve and a Special Protection Area for Birds. It is a large complex formed by the lagoons of La Vega o del Pueblo, El Retamar, El Alcahozo and Navalafuente. It is an ideal place for the study and observation of birdlife, for which observation posts have been installed. The variety of fauna, together with the conservation of the vegetation, makes these lagoons a place of singular natural and cultural value. It is an enclave of great interest for lovers of ornithology, photography and amazing sunsets.

So if you are one of those in search of marine fauna, you absolutely should visit the lagoons of El Pueblo and Retamar, which are home to an important community of aquatic birds, including the white-headed duck, one of the most endangered bird species at present. The vegetation is characteristic of the shallow saline enclaves. The reeds, saw-sedge and salt grass, stand out the most.

To contemplate the lagoons there are certain paths that allow us to get to know them in detail; the Don Quixote Wetland Interpretation Centre shows the ecological wealth of the wetland by means of videos, interactive tactile panels, and other information. This centre also offers guided tours for adult, but also school groups.
