Doñana National Park

Almonte, Huelva, Spain

The Basics

At Doñana—originally the hunting grounds for Spanish royalty—you’ll discover that each environment (including marshland, lagoons, coastal dunes, and Mediterranean scrubland) is a vital habitat for animals such as the endangered Spanish imperial eagle and Iberian lynx. And as one of the largest heronries in the Mediterranean, the park is a paradise for bird-watchers. Conservation is the reserve’s number one priority.
