Protected Natural Environments in Córdoba Province
The mountain range of the Sierra Morena occupies Cordoba province's northern flank and its gently rolling hills are home to the densely wooded natural parks of the Sierra de Hornachuelos and the Sierra de Cardeña y Montoro. Dotted around Cordoba are many protected wetlands that have significant populations of white-headed ducks and other wildfowl, particularly in winter; the largest of these is the Laguna de Zóñar Natural Reserve. Cordoba city has an unusual urban oasis of wildlife in its centre, Los Sotos de la Albolafia Natural Monument, which is a woodland area on the Guadalquivir river.
