Highest peak in Tenerife

Correct! El Teide, the third highest volcano in the world, gives its name to this national park where the landscapes seem to have been taken from another planet and which can be driven around by car. Take the cable car up to the top to get the full experience and take in the unique views.

10In which national park in Spain can you find the Iberian lynx, the most endangered cat on the planet?
Iberian lynx

Correct! Doñana, which stretches across the provinces of Huelva, Seville and Cadiz, is home to this famous animal. What is even better is that you can also spot the imperial eagle here as well as landscapes that include Mediterranean forests, marshlands, moving dunes and spectacular beaches. There are two original ways to travel around the park: in an off-road vehicle with a guide or on board the Real Fernando Boat on the Guadalquivir river.

10This impressive semi-desert in Navarre has inspired artists, and “The World is Not Enough” and “Game of Thrones” have been filmed here, as well as other films and series. Are we referring to...?
Bardenas Reales
Monegros desert
Tabernas desert

Correct! The strange shapes of the terrain in this region will leave no visitor indifferent. Anyone that wants to hike or cycle has more than 700 kilometres of paths and tracks to do it.

10This is an image of Las Médulas, a landscape in Leon that hides...
Las Médulas, León

Correct! Las Médulas were the largest open-cut mines from the ancient Roman Empire. The beautiful colours at sunset are hard to forget.

Aigüestortes, Caldes region
Torcal de Antequera Nature Area
Somiedo Nature Reserve

Correct! This is the only national park in Catalonia. As well as visiting its waterfalls, forests and fields, there is also the opportunity to visit the eight charming Roman churches in the Vall de Boí, which have been declared World Heritage Sites.

10To get onto this small islet with its shrine you need to climb up 241 stairs. Where is it?
241-stair shrine

Correct! This is one of the most beautiful places on the Basque Coast. The climb is well worth the effort. And if you're up for it, as the tradition goes, you need to touch the shrine’s bell three times and make a wish.

10This is the Caminito del Rey, a series of walkways pinned along a cliff which goes down 700m. But, why is it famous?
Caminito del Rey, Málaga

Correct! Although it used to be known for this, nowadays it has been completely reformed and with its walkways and 105-metre-high hanging bridge it is one of the most spectacular places for hikers in Andalusia.

10More than a million cherry trees blossom in this region between the end of March and early April. We are referring to...

10In which nature reserve would you find “sculptures” in the heart of nature such as the white tail of a mermaid or a giant cage?
Forest with a sculpture of the mermaid’s tale

Correct! This reserve is in Salamanca (Castile and Leon). There are interesting routes around it such as the Camino del Agua which passes by sculptures hidden in the heart of nature as if it were telling a story.

10There is a place in Spain that is famous for a holy cave carved out of a rock on top of a waterfall, a basilica in the heart of nature and some of the most beautiful glacial lakes in Spain. Where do you have to go to see all this?
