A terrific place to get great views of raptors - and another excellent spot for Black Woodpecker and Citril Finch.

San Juan de la Pena

This is the view looking back at the monastery from the south-facing ridge where raptors are likely to pass very close

And this is the view of the north facing ridge with Pena de Oroel in the background. Hence this is a place where you can scan for raptors in all directions.
