Area located in the center-west of the province of Cáceres, between the Monfragüe National Park and the Tajo International Natural Park.
The banks of river Tagus and Alagón present abundant rocky escarpments of great importance for the nesting of rupicolous birds that are those that nest in rocks. Within this group we will highlight:
In the Tagus River there are both native species and species introduced by man that have managed to adapt and acclimate to their new habitat.
In this zone we can find several species of newts, among which we highlight the gallipato
Among the different species of frogs and toads we will highlight the existence of the Iberian parter toad
Diverse species of lizards, and snakes inhabit in the zone, emphasizing by their singularity the Iberian slant.
Also inhabited in this area is the leprous tortoise, semi-aquatic reptile
Can be found:
Mustelidea (weasels, genet, ferrets, barnacles, badgers, otters …)
Tops and Shrews
Alternating landscapes between:
– Grassland where the holm oak predominate.
– Vegetation of scrubland (rock roses, brooms, kermes oaks …)
– Riverside vegetation and forest of gallery (poplars, elms …) next to the water courses of streams and rivers, as we move away from the margins of the reservoir banks.
