We did an 8 k walk through Monfrague recently. Not a walking path for the timid but not too onerous. Some of the scenery was interesting but around midday there wasn't too much fauna about. On the drive out we stopped at a spot where you could see vultures nesting and flying past quite close. That was terrific. The information... More

The birds and animals and the bird-watchers. The scenery on the bus trip from Trujillo to Caceres. The vultures and Eagles and glimpses of hunters.

We enjoyed a drive through the Monfrague National Park - the scenery is stunning particularly the rocky outcrops, and we enjoyed watching the birds. The road is good as there is plenty of parking at the main lookout point.

Although it is possible to drive through the park, there are many hiking trails throughout. My husband and I did a 5 km walk up to the castle, which affords a panoramic view of the Tajo River. We brought food and water and had a picnic when we got to the top while watching vultures gliding gracefully in front of... More

We just drove through this park but it looked very good and wished we could have explored it further. It appears to be very big with a river running through it. There was a camping site too.

Super scenic, windy roads with a great view from the castle. A family of vultures live here - real fun to watch how elegant they are soaring in the sky catching the thermals!

Worth a visit when in the Plasencia region. See mighty birds circling overhead,articial lakes and a very interesting landscape with unusual rock formations all easily reachable by a small but good road leading through the National Park.

It is so good we went twice in 2 days. The place to go is the castle 8km from the visitor centre. You can park at the very bottom and walk up the road or park at the very top. Either way you should see well over a hundred vultures doing vultury things. Swooping round on soaring arcs, landing on... More
