Within the town centre we have a PIO at the confluence of several historic buildings: Santo Domingo, Palacio Mirabel, the Parador, San Nicolás… Places where colonies of Lesser Kestrels and White Storks live. This PIO is home to one of the most numerous Lesser Kestrel colonies. 


The Santo Domingo PIO point can be visited mainly from February onwards, although the White Storks are usually here at the end of December. It is at the beginning of March when the Lesser Kestrels fly over their colonies again and again. It is a spectacle both visually and sonorously. 


Although we can go at any time of the day, it is true that the best time for birdwatching is in the morning and in the afternoon, when all the members of the Lesser Kestrel and White Stork colonies are grouped together. 


In the PIO of Santo Domingo, we will be able to observe: Lesser Kestrel, White Stork, Jackdaw, House Sparrow, Black Redstart, Common Swift, House Martin, Barn Swallow…. 

Anything to improve?
