ANDALUSIAN WILDLIFE

Andalusia is blessed with an abundance of wildlife as a result of its huge area of unspoilt wildernesses. The Castril National Park is one of these and is an ideal place to see much of the wildlife shown on the left.

The Castril National Park is home to Griffon vultures and there are some one hundred mating pairs. Watching them circle over carrion is an amazing experience which one would only normally expect to see on The Serengeti or other African safari parks.
