The Setting

Surrounding Dehesa La Laguna

The Lake

Dehesa de la Laguna is so named due to its position at the edge of the Laguna del Coripe, part of the continental wetlands belonging to the Guadalmanil sub-basin, in the Guadalete catchment basin. The particular characteristics of its waters encourage the settlement of vegetation rarely found in Andalusia, given the scarcity of this particular ecosystem.

With regards to fauna, in the periods when the water accumulates, the lake is used as a resting and feeding zone for migrating aquatic birds, mainly ardeidae, storks and waders.

Vía Verde de la Sierra

The Via Verde de la Sierra runs for 36 Km along the border between the provinces of Cádiz and Seville, between the villages of Puerto Serrano and Olvera.

Along its course are old railway stations which have been converted into restaurants and visitor centres. It is a beautiful and fascinating route, with the peñón de Zaframagón being one of its most outstanding points of interest.

Peñón de Zaframagón

Close to the lake, Peñón de Zaframagón is a 584 m high limestone outcrop with sheer cliffs. Of particular interest is one of the largest nesting colonies of griffon vultures in Europe which resides here, making a visit to the Zaframagón Interpretation Centre and Ornithological Observatory a must.
