Puerto Real


The town of Puerto Real was founded by the Reyes Católicos in 1483. Although this date represents its entry into the scene in the Modern Age, the studies on finds located on the surface and the excavations carried out, date the population settlements in the area back to Prehistory (sites of “El Retamar”) and links them with romanization (sites of “Puente Melchor”, “El Gallinero”, “Villanueva” and others) sequentially.

The Natural Park is the most relevant protected natural space in the area of salt marshes and salt flats, with a total area of about 100 square kilometers, of which Puerto Real contributes with a 32.5%
