    Sanabria Lake

    Spain
    By Dmitry Petrounin Dmitry Petrounin Section editor Profile

    Discover Sanabria Lake

    Galicia has various protected areas which are home to the flora and fauna which form the region's unique ecosystems. The Sanabria Lake Natural Park is one such area. At the heart of the park and at an altitude of 1,200m lies the glacial lake (or 'Lago glacial' in Spanish), the largest lake on the Iberian Peninsula, spanning just under 2 mi with a depth of 51m. The chestnut and oak forests found here provide an ideal habitat for many different animal species, including wolves, foxes, otters, wild boars, golden eagles, kingfishers and other falcon species as well as various reptiles, birds, fish, amphibians and small mammals. As you can see, it really is worth bringing your binoculars, as the surroundings here are truly spectacular.
