Discover The Reatillo River and Parque del Tejo park

The Reatillo River is an affluent of the Turia and can be accessed from the villages of Chera and Siete Aguas. This is an ecosystem surrounded by the Sierra de Tejo and the Sierra de Negrete and is home to vegetation consisting primarily of Carrasco pine trees, though there are a few varieties of yew and maple, as well as some typically Mediterranean flora. The forest-covered mountain ranges in the area also provide the ideal habitat for a variety of species, with the river and the Buceo dam emanating life, making it the biological epicentre of the ecosystem. You'll find plenty of large birds of prey circling above the ground to admire, too, such as the golden eagle, the Bonelli's eagle and the short-toed eagle, as well as owls and nightjars. Back on the ground, meanwhile, there are plenty of amphibious species, reptiles, grass snakes, turtles and insects, including the rare blue dragonfly, to watch out for. If nature-related activities and adventure sports don't really appeal to you, you might be interested to know that the site also boasts a selection of heritage sites and places of cultural interest, such as the Arab castle, Sot de Chera Church and the Chera fortification walls.
