Among the Lepidoptera species found in this natural space, you'll find, among those of other colours, the famous Andean Blue Morpho, a butterfly whose wingspan can reach 20 centimetres and whose intensely blue-coloured wings serve to scare away predators.

Nature envelopes the butterfly reserve, representing a haven of peace and tranquillity just 15 minutes outside Granada, if you are visiting by car or taxi.
