Cabañeros National Park, Castilla-La-Mancha, Spain

Cabañeros National Park (in Spanish: Parque Nacional de Cabañeros) is a national park in Spain, which falls within two provinces, the northwest of Ciudad Real and the southwest of Toledo. The park was designated in 1995 and has an area of 390 km². It is placed in the northwestern quadrant of the province of Ciudad Real, between the Estena and Bullaque rivers, extending the Chorito and Miraflores mountain ranges. It is the best and largest representation of Iberian Mediterranean forest, with an enormous variety of vegetable species.

The interest of its fauna is notable, both for its number (276 species of vertebrates) and for its high percentage of endangered species. It has been designated a Special Protection Area forbird-life which includes the following species:

  • Black stork (rare but not threatened).
  • Eurasian Black Vulture (near threatened), second largest breeding population.
  • Spanish Imperial Eagle (threatened).

Mammals include the otter in the Estena river and four species of ungulates: wild boar, red deer, roe deer and (in the most forested areas) fallow deer. The park has been designated as a site for the reintroduction of the Iberian lynx, a critically endangered feline.
