Do you want to know which ones? Well, come on, from ON Hotels we are going to show you. Doñana National Park The Doñana National Park is the largest national park in Europe and the second largest in Spain. Located in the province of Huelva, it has been declared a biosphere reserve by UNESCO. It is internationally recognized with several different wildlife habitats. The park is home to more than 300 species of birds, 330 species of fish, and more than 12,000 species of plants. Doñana is also home to the Iberian lynx, one of the most threatened species in Europe. Dune Park This is a dune system that runs from Matalascañas to Mazagón along the coast. There are about 130 hectares where you can see dunes and pine forests by the sea. It originated thanks to a fault in which there are sediments that colonized the vegetation. If you want to visit Dunar Park and discover its fauna and flora, you can do it through its trails, which are just over 6 kilometers long. Torre de la Higuera If you've ever been to Matalascañas beach, you've seen it for sure. The only thing is that you may not know what the so-called "plug" is. Years ago, Matalascañas was called that way, Torre de la Higuera, from where its current name comes from. Its name came from the beacon tower that was here. This tower was used to light a fire and warn of an event. It is his remains that can be seen today on the demolished beach, something that happened during the Lisbon earthquake in 1755. If you want to discover all that Matalascañas has to offer, why not come and spend a few days at ON Hotels ? We will wait for you!
