How to get there and origins of the reserve
The entrance to the nature reserve is right next to the Pont dels Anglesos, about six kilometres southeast ofAlcúdia, the Mallorcan city located in the large bay of the same name. Before you get up close to nature, you can visit the Church of Sant Jaume, in neo-Gothic style. If you follow the walls that surround the old town, you will walk through centuries of antiquity. Once you arrive at the S'Albufera nature reserve, you will be stepping on a wetland of international renown, since it is considered a Special Protection Area for Birds (ZEPA). S’Albufera is the largest and most important wetland in the Balearic Islands. Part of the wetland dates back to the Tertiary, although its coastal dunes are more modern, about 10,000 years old. Its expanse has varied due to changes in sea level, which have changed its shape over the years.
