Add it to your travel notebook

This is one of the four protected ‘Bonales’ in the town of Piedrabuena, which are catalogued as special protection habitats and are truly impressive. A ‘bonal’ (peat bog) is a kind of silted ground; a soil that is permanently or semi-permanently waterlogged and accumulates decomposed plant debris.

The peat bog of El Arconocal is of the plain type and allows the accumulation of puddles thanks to the groundwater that filters through. Among other species that abound in its waters are the sun dew, the gatina olaga, the Spanish narcissus, the peat moss and the peat myrtle, among many other plants that grow naturally in the surrounding area.
