Cloudscape / Sanabria Natural Park, Spain

February 06, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

The Sanabria Lake Natural Park is located around the Sanabria Lake, northwest part of the Zamora Province in Spain. It occupies a surface area of 22,365ha, with heights ranging from 3,270ft (997m) at the lake banks to the 6,968ft (2,124m) of the peak of Peña Trevinca.
The great biodiversity is one of the main features of the ecosystem of the park. Woods of oak coexist with birch, alder, hazel, willow, ash, rowan, chestnut, holly and yews along with large extensions of scrubland (broom). In the highlands, broom is usually replaced by heath. Here, the abundance of little glacial lakes, snowfall, sources and streams allows the existence of peat bogs, a rarity in these latitudes.
