On the Way of St. James we can find great monuments of historical importance and unparalleled artistic beauty. But we cannot forget the impressive natural jewels scattered throughout our geography, such as the Natural Park of Lake Sanabria, in the province of Zamora, which you can visit if you do the Camino Sanabrés.
This territory was declared a Natural Park in 1978, due to its unique morphology dating back to the glacial period. Within its extension is the largest glacier in the Iberian Peninsula. It also abounds in lagoons and valleys full of lush vegetation that will take your breath away.
The Natural Park is also home to a multitude of animal species, including the otter, which is the Park's emblem. We can also find a multitude of amphibian species such as salamanders and newts. As for the vegetation, the Park is full of oak, birch and willow trees, as well as holly, yew and other species that require a lot of humidity.
Within the Park we can also find several places of historical and artistic interest, such as the monastery of Santa María in San Martín de Castañeda or the group of popular architecture "Las Casas del Parque", where the Tourist Office is located.
The park is also ideal for all kinds of sports, such as cycling, kayaking and hiking.
