Protected nature around the Tagus river (Tajo)

This natural space was awarded UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status in 2016. The territory is mainly rural and wilderness, with few signs of human activity. The Biosphere Reserve comprises 14 municipalities in Cáceres province, Extremadura, and 12 in Portugal. The native Mediterranean wildlife in the reserve includes several rare and endangered species. The terrain is steep and abrupt around the river, and dominated by holm oaks, cork oaks, and scrub.
