Seville enchants

Doñana stretches across a vast plain between Seville and the Atlantic Ocean. Sun, air, water and mud are the protagonists for hundreds of kilometres around this enormous and uninhabited geological basin, the history of an Andalusia eroded, transported and sedimented here over millions of years.

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.

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.
