Bonal del Barranco de Zarzalagorda

Add it to your travel notebook

This is another 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 bonal del Barranco de Zarzalagorda is located between the hills of La Serranilla and Zarzalagorda. Its runoff water makes its flora very particular and worthy of study for botany lovers: Brabant myrtles, rushes, gorse, water spurge, water spikes, etc. Its dimpled walls hide sphagnum and sundew sponges, and the surrounding area of the ‘bonal’ has a series of equally impressive trees, such as holm oaks, common oaks, and gall oaks.
