Travel photography: Spain
Nature and National parks - Part 2
August 7, 2022
In the last article the various Asturian landscapes were the main focus, now let's move on to other, no less remarkable parts of the country.
The first stop leads us to Monfragüe NP in Extremadura which is famous especially for its bird life.
Coastal regions only took a very minor role in my trip and the temperature were not suited for a beach holiday in any case. The Atlantic coast is less famous than the countless beaches along the Mediterranean due to the much more chilled air and water temperatures.
All the National Parks I visited in Spain had something special and captivating to offer. From a landscape point of view there is in my opinion however a clear winner - Ordesa y Monte Perdido NP in the Pyrenees. The natural beauty of this part of the Pyrenees was recognized already in the early 20th century and the park was established in 1918.
These are all of my favorite impressions from my trip. I hope that I could give you an idea also of the parts of the country that people maybe don't think of when they hear "Spain".
