National Parks and Protected Areas in SpainNational Parks and Protected Areas in Spain
Mountains and wetlands, beaches and forests, volcanoes, lava and lakes. Spain's 14 National Parks are distinctive for their variety, but above all, for their stunning ecological wealth. Nature takes centre stage in these unique areas, some of which have the UNESCO World Heritage designation. Stretching from the Pyrenees to the Canary Islands, Spain's National Parks cover a total of more than 325,000 hectares of land and have an immense natural and cultural value, all but untouched by man over the centuries, and enjoy special state protection. These areas all share some common features, such as their spectacular landscapes, although each National Park has its own special character which makes it unique and distinctive. The Spanish national parks are good examples of well managed tourism, but are a less known picture of Spain mainly seen as country of mass tourism. Spain could in fact become a country known for "Linking Tourism & Conservation".
