Sierra y Cañones de Guara Nature Reserve
This natural reserve covers almost 48,000 hectares in the foothills of the Pyrenees. Several important rivers traverse the area and have eroded the surrounding rocks leaving it with beautiful karstic formations that include dolines, caves, pits and spectacular canyons. Due to its location in between the Pyrenees and the Ebro valley, the area gets both weather systems from the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. The Guara Sierra and Canyons form a spot between two climates which marks the different vegetation: dry to the south and luxuriant to the north.
