In HardHobbitToBreak We like being able to recommend you spectacular places to visit during your holidays, and I love being able to do it with natural places, which I think are the most beautiful we can see. The Natural Parks are exceptional destinations for any traveler, especially for those who like to be surrounded by nature.
One of the most beautiful in our country is the Els Ports Natural Park, which is in the southwest of the province of Tarragona and which borders both Teruel and Castellón borders. It is 30 kilometers from the city of Tortosa, also very interesting. It is not one of the best known or famous parks in our country but the truth is that it is a true wonder, especially for lovers of hiking.
Here you will find great cliffs of limestone adorning the landscape, as well as cliffs, ravines or rock formations such as Roque de Benet, one of the most beautiful in the park. As you go deeper into the park and gain height, the natural landscape becomes more spectacular, with increasingly lush forests among which you can find various areas of crops and pastures.
The highest peak is the Monte Caro, which is 1447 meters and from which you have spectacular views of the cliffs and the entire park, in addition to which you can also see, in the distance, several of the towns of Aragon. From the top you can also see some of the animal species that inhabit the park, such as eagles, griffon vultures, wild boars, roe deer or mountain goats.
The Parque Natural dels Ports also offers several hiking trailsSo if you like this activity, I totally recommend visiting this park. Either way, if you are going to be in Catalonia and you have time, stop by here and you will see that you do not regret it.
