Visit to the Estanca de Alcañiz and Saladas de Alcañiz

This complex of endorheic salt lakes is considered one of the most important on the Iberian Peninsula, although today it coexists with an area of irrigated farmland created in recent years through public programmes for new irrigation works. This has led to the development of new environments and crops associated with irrigation, and a reduction in the dry land area, with only 650 ha remaining, surrounded by newly-created irrigated farmland.

Despite this, the area covered by the SCI still offers a satisfactory wildlife experience, including the opportunity to view birds typical of salt pans and semi-arid areas.
