Natural area Marismas del Odiel
This natural area located south of the province of Huelva is characterized by marshes at the mouths of the rivers Tinto and Odiel.
Within the marshes there are two large nature reserves: Marismas del Burro and Isla de Enmedio, reserves with a wide variety of birds with colonies of storks, flamingos and herons among others. The estuary formed by the mouth of the river forms a feeding place for birds in the area.
The Odiel Marshes offer a great ecological and landscape variety, an ideal place for a great day in nature at the forest or beach. In the centre of interpretation of the Odiel Marshes there are informative panels with trails, a rest area and an observatory of birds.
