The National Parks of Spain

Spain can boast of having a varied and rich geography of infinite value, being able to find deserts, mountains, rivers, wetlands, volcanoes, ravines, islands, glaciers, dunes … The problem is that, in general, human beings do not do everything that it is in our hands for the optimal conservation of ecosystems. For this reason, a century ago the National Parks Network was created, which today includes 15 parks spread throughout the territory.

To be part of this group of protected spaces, it is essential to meet certain requirements: be a space of high natural and cultural value; that the human impact is minimal; have unique fauna, flora or geomorphological formations; be representative of the Spanish natural heritage … Today at Vuela Viajes we want you to know each of the National Parks of Spain. Can you come with us?
