Another great place to visit, Alvaro. We went also to "see" the Spanish Linx (we knew it was very difficult ) and we saw this majestic eagle.
We took a picture in Monfragüe of a fight between a Spanish Imperial Eagle and a Black Vulture, we know it is not a good picture, but the moment was stunning.
