Regional Park Sierra Espuna

The Regional Park of Sierra Espuna is absolutely stunning!  Located inland in the province of Murcia and covering 25,000 hectares it has been protected since 1930. 

Pine trees cover most of the park and, as it has some 20 mountain peaks above 1,000 metres, the views over the top of the pine forests are magnificent.  It takes its name from its highest mountain, the Espuna at 1583 meters!

Wild Boar Regional Park Sierra Espuna

The park has quite an intriguing history. 

The region of Murcia enjoyed great prosperity during the 18th century when it plundered its natural resources including most of its pine forests.

  when Ricardo Codorniu, a passionate nature lover and forest engineer returned to the region in 1889, he was devastated by the destruction which the years of economic boom had caused.

He set about restoring the forest, replanting some 19,000 hectares and becoming known as the ‘apostle of tress’.

As you drive through the park you’ll notice evidence of his hard work as a lot of the pine trees are planted in straight lines.

Wild GOATS Regional Park Sierra Espuna

Today the park is criss crossed with many hundreds of kilometres of marked walking and cycling routes.

The mountain road is very well maintained and there are numerous panoramic viewpoints, as well as some great picnic areas. 

If you’re lucky you’ll see the Moufflon mountain goats, wild boars and circling eagles during your scenic drive.

This is a circular route so you can drive it in either order! WHILE AT Regional Park Sierra Espuna.

Wild Boar in the Sierra Espuna – Murcia, Spain Regional Park Sierra Espuna.

Whilst we were in the Sierra Espuna National Park in May 2011 we stopped by the side of the road where a couple of workmen spread some grain on the ground so that we would be able to see “close up” the wild boar.

After the first group came you will see (about halfway through the video) that two more boar come down the hill followed by the piglets once they’ve decided that it’s safe for them.

What a surprise and an awesome experience! AT Regional Park Sierra Espuna
