Laguna del Chinche Natural Reserve

Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park

The Laguna del Chinche Natural Reserve is a total protected area of around 200ha.  Near the reserve is another important lake called the Laguna Honda.  Both lakes are used by many different species of birds.

There is a footpath and cycleway which links both lakes called the Green Pathof the Olive Oil. As the lakes are seasonal, the best time to visit is in winter.
Most common bird visitors and residents are moorhens, coots, purple gallinules and white-headed ducks.

The predominant vegetation is tamarisk, along with bulrushes and reedbeds.
