Beauty resides in trees. Muniellos National Park, Spain
The Muniellos Nature Reserve is one of Spain's best-preserved forests of Quercus robur, otherwise known as common oak, European oak, or English oak. The 13,560-acre reserve in the Asturias also includes sessile oaks, visible in our photo alongside beech trees.
In the 1970s, logging was banned in the reserve. Soon after hunting was prohibited too. Today, even human access to this UNESCO-designated biosphere is calculated and carefully controlled. There's a visitor center, and that's about as far as most tourists are allowed. We're just glad that we could bring to you some images of this incredibly dense forest. If you wish to feel the love of nature, then this is the perfect destination for you to explore.
