This is a Natural Park of wild beauty declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. It is a semi-desert landscape covering 42.500 hectares that is striking and surprises the visitor every time. An unusual spectacle in south-east Navarre, near Tudela which, despite its bare and inhospitable appearance, is home to great natural values.

In Bardenas Reales, the erosion of its clay, chalk and sandstone soils has sculpted capricious forms in the landscape to create almost lunar effects, full of gullies, plateaux and solitary hills. It has inspired painters and writers and has been the scene of TV adverts, music videos and films such as "Airbag", "Acción Mutante", "Orgullo y Pasión" ,"El mundo nunca es suficiente" or "Anacleto Agente Secreto". 

The visitor will find several signposted routes that can be followed on foot, by bicycle, on horseback or in motor vehicles (please consult the limits and rules applied by the Junta de Bardenas Reales in this respect). Specialist guides will help you to discover unforgettable spots with echoes of legends such as the famous highwayman Sanchicorrota, who used to fool his pursuers by putting his horse's shoes on backwards. Why don't you escape to this unique area, which will not leave you indifferent? ... [+ info]
