Herrera de Alcántara – Santiago de Alcántara Route
This part of the river can only be visited between 1st August and 15th January so as to preserve its biodiversity. As the remaining months of the year coincide with the birds’ breeding season, unspoilt areas cannot be entered.
The route involves going up the River Tajo to Santiago de Alcántara. Now one side of La Raya is Portuguese and the other Spanish. However, this border is in unity thanks to its wild landscape full of birds of prey, fresh air, and lots of water. It’s a dream for photography enthusiasts!
