Visitors to Alcaine are always surprised by the varied and spectacular landscape in which they find themselves: canyons and ravines carved by water, Mediterranean shrubland and pine forests, a fertile irrigated valley and wetlands at the end of the Cueva Foradada reservoir.
This diversity of geology and landscape is matched by its variety of flora and fauna. The valley and gorges of the river Martin provide an important area for raptors, waterfowl and birds associated with cliffs and steppes. They form a ‘Special Protection Area’ in EU’s Natura 2000 network. You can also enjoy viewing the Spanish ibex, a species of wild goat often sighted from our house.
