The extraordinary landscapes and views that you will see in the Breña y Marismas de Barbate Natural Park make it well worth the trip from Jerez down the Atlantic coast to Barbate, a distance of only 78 kilometres. In this municipality, where you can visit the Trafalgar Cape, its greatest treasure is the ecosystem itself. Barbate Natural Park spans over 5,000 hectares, of which more than 1,000 are marine. The fearsome Brena cliff rises 100 metres above the sea and is perfect for watching birds nesting in its walls. Be sure to have a look at the curious phenomenon of 'salt spray' which is caused by the crash of the waves onto the rocks, where the salt solidifies and forms a blanket. Here you will find also the 'Torre del Tajo', which was used to guard the coast in the 16th century.
