Summary/Historical Context

The different ecosystems converging in Doñana make this natural reserve one of Europe's few remaining paradises for fauna. Interlinking marshlands, banks, reserve zones, pinewoods, dunes and beaches comprise a vibrant and complex area of great originality and beauty. Doñana is a strategic location for large populations of endangered fauna, and a resting and breeding place for many species of migrating birds crossing Africa and Europe. The flat expanse of this extraordinary and vast wetland takes new forms throughout the day and in each new season, presenting an ever-changing physiognomy that captivates our senses
