The Natural Park of Los Alcornocales

Article Index

Water and river systems

The relatively high lack of permeability of the different types of rock, added to the considerable rainfall as a consequence of the cooling down of moist air from the sea, has led to a complex river network that runs through the Natural Park. There are 5 main rivers: Barbate, Majaceite, Guadarranque, Hozgarganta and Palmones, and the amount of water flowing out to the Atlantic (Barbate and Majaceite) almost exactly matches that flowing into the Mediterranean (Guadarranque, Hozgarganta and Palmones).

In the south of the Park, there a number of “canutos”, river carved valleys in which there are still plants whose origins go back to the tertiary period.
