The Duero Nature Trail is a project that promotes the environmental, historical, cultural, and ethnographic values of the river and its surroundings, as well as the people who live along its riversides.
Surroundings: it runs through gentle countryside plenty of vineyards and cereal fields. Riverside woodland with poplars, willows and elms alternates with almond and fruit trees, pine woods, juniper groves and holm oaks.
Birdwatching: along the route you can see migratory birds, vultures, pigeons and nightingales, or be surprised to see otters, dippers, ducks and crabs.
Its rich environmental diversity harmonises with humanized lagoons, river beaches, natural fishing grounds and natural viewpoints, and is enriched by a heritage legacy that includes winery districts, medieval villas, castles, Romanesque temples, and monasteries.
