Hoces del Cabriel Nature Reserve

The Nature Reserve lies in the Region of Valencia between the municipalities of Villagordo del Cabriel, Venta del Moro and Requena. Its unique landscape features rivers and geological formations such as crags and gorges, which make it the perfect habitat for river wildlife and birds of prey.
