The Massifs of Cardó and Boix

The sierras of Cardó and Boix are only 20 minutes driving distance from the northern fringe of the Ebro Delta, and yet their existence is virtually ignored by visiting birders. Dwarf fan palms (Europe's only native palm tree), cave paintings and Mediterranean woodland of pine, evergreen oak and ancient yews; remote summits, vertical rock faces and a rich mosaic of habitats; Golden and Bonelli's Eagles…Continue ignoring them if you like; after all, there's no accounting for tastes.
