Natura 2000 areas

According to the definition given by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), the term protected area refers to: “An area of land and/or sea especially dedicated to the protection and maintenance of biological diversity, and of natural and associated cultural resources, and managed through legal or other effective means”.

Several different categories of protected areas have been established in our country, most of which are included in NATURA 2000, a European Network of Protected Areas.
This network is based on two European Directives, the 92/43/EEC Directive for the protection of habitats and the 79/409/EEC Directive for the protection of birds.

Select the Natura 2000 area you wish
and find useful information.
