Seville and its province are known for being one of the hottest places in Andalusia, especially when the heat is more intense during the summertime.

The 20-hectare restored lagoon was declared as a natural reserve on 28 July 1989. Located about 800 metres from the village, endangered species such as white-headed duck, mallard or pink flamingo nest and roost here.

The Observatory is located in the Natural Reserve opposite the Gobierno Lagoon. 

Its main goal is to make it easier for visitors to watch the wildlife found in the lagoon and its surroundings and admire the local landscape.

Escalera Lagoon, which belongs to the group of endorheic lagoons in the Lantejuela area, is a temporary wetland with high salinity. As with the other nearby lagoons, it stands out for its ornithological importance as a feeding area for flamingos and other birds.

It is an attractive place for ornithologists. February to April is the best time to visit, after the winter rains. 

The “Laguna de los Tollos” Nature Classroom, located in Rocío de la Cámara Park, is used for environmental education activities, talks and debates.
