Seville, beautiful and diverse

Doñana stretches across a vast plain between Seville and the Atlantic Ocean. Sun, air, water and mud are the protagonists for hundreds of kilometres around this enormous and uninhabited geological basin, the history of an Andalusia eroded, transported and sedimented here over millions of years.

Escalera Lagoon, which belongs to the group of endorheic lagoons in the Lantejuela area, is a temporary wetland with high salinity. As with the other nearby lagoons, it stands out for its ornithological importance as a feeding area for flamingos and other birds.

It is an attractive place for ornithologists. February to April is the best time to visit, after the winter rains. 

Birdwatching is the most popular form of nature tourism. Steppes, mountain ranges, riverbanks and marshes are home to more than 300 different species of birds. The geographical location of the province places it on the most important European migratory route, which adds many species and individuals to those already common in our countryside.

La Galiana Lagoon is a small, shallow wetland that is part of the Lebrija-Las Cabezas Endorheic Complex Natural Reserve.

The lagoon, located in gently sloping terrain, it is fed by surface runoff and direct rainfall. This leads to strong seasonality. It is the first lagoon in the complex that dries up. Its waters are sub-saline throughout the flooding cycle.

La Cigarrera is a small, sib-saline lagoon in the Lebrija-Las Cabezas Endorheic Complex Natural Reserve. This lagoon has the best-preserved strip of perilagoon vegetation in the complex.
