Tablas de Daimiel – National Park

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Blog, Places

The national park of Las Tablas de Daimiel is a Spanish national park that protects the homonymous wetland, the Tables of Daimiel. The national park is in Daimiel and Villarrubia de los Ojos, in the province of Ciudad Real, in the autonomous community of Castilla-La Mancha. It is part of the La Mancha Humid Biosphere Reserve. The Tables are one of the last representatives of an ecosystem called fluvial tables that are formed when the rivers overflow in their middle sections, favored by phenomena of semiendorreism and the scarcity of slopes. The wetland is formed at the confluence of the Guadiana River and its Cigüela tributary and is one of the most important aquatic ecosystems of the Iberian Peninsula due to the variety and quality of the fauna and flora that inhabit it, as well as by the birds that use it in the migratory process. However, the survival of the park is threatened by overexploitation of aquifers.

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Blog, Places

The Royal Palace of Madrid is the official residence of the king of Spain; however, the present kings do not inhabit it, so it is used for state ceremonies and solemn acts. With an area of 135,000 m² it is the largest royal palace in Western Europe, and one of the largest in the world. It houses a valuable historical-artistic heritage, and collections such as paintings, sculptures and tapestries. The palace was built by order of King Philip V, on the site left by the Royal Alcazar, destroyed almost entirely by a fire in 1734. Both the cements of the old Alcazar and some of its structures were used for the construction of the new palace. The fire served to justify the replacement of the old building by a palace. Its construction began in 1738, according to traces of the architect Filippo Juvara, who proposed a greater palace, but in a different location. When Juvara died, the project was entrusted to his disciple Juan Bautista Sachetti, who was required to adapt the plans of Juvara to the site of the old Alcazar. Francesco Sabatini was in charge of the conclusion of the building, as well as secondary works to reform, […]

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Blog, Places

The National Park of Aiguas Tortas and Lake San Mauricio was created in 1955 and it is the only Spanish national park located in the autonomous community of Catalonia. It is in the central part of the Pyrenees in the province of Lleida. It presents two areas: the eastern, with continental climate that feed the lake of San Mauricio, and the western of Atlantic high mountain climate. The geography of the park is high mountain because much of the territory surpasses the 1000 meters over the sea level, with peaks that surpass the 3,000 meters over the sea level. Among them, two valleys stand out: to the west the Sant Nicolau river valley, with its characteristic meadows and meanders. The park has a great biological value. The elevated levels of unevenness originate the different ecosystems: meadows, crops and deciduous forests in the lower levels, evergreen forests in the midlands, and high mountain meadows and rocks at the highest levels.

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Blog, Legends

Zugarramurdi is known to be the witches’ town and a history of a movie. In 1609 Enrique IV started a witch hunt to eliminate the witchcraft in France, many people fled to Spain. Between this people there was Maria de Ximildegui, who returned to her natal town, Zugarramurdi. She was questioned by the local priest and in exchange of her salvation she confessed in participating with other neighbors in pagan meetings in which the devil was venerated in the “coven”, the father of goat. Maria said to have practiced the witchcraft and to have flown thanks to the help of the evil one. These facts were made known to the Inquisition which judged 53 people, 11 of whom were named witches and therefore were burned in the main square of Logroño, 21 were charged with minor charges and 21 others were acquitted. This persecution that occurred throughout Europe and born of an act of faith caused the beginning of the black legend of Zugarramurdi, “The Spanish Salem” or “The town of the witches.”
