Natural Reserve of the European Bison
San Cebrián de Mudá (Palencia), San Cebrian de Mudá
The European bison reserve (Bison Bonasus) is located in San Cebrián de Mudá in a privileged environment of the Palencia Mountain. In a plot of 20 hectares of oak and meadows you can observe European bisons in a semi-freedom state. The main objective of the project is the rehabilitation of this historic animal of which not a single specimen remained in the wild around the world in 1927.
When we talk about booking, we are not talking about a zoo or an exhibition of live animals, since the reserve is based on a different concept. Here, respecting the freedom that animals enjoy, the visitor will only have the possibility to see it; never the certainty.
The visit can be done in several ways: walking, cycling, in an off-road or horse-drawn carriage. And in winter we have snowshoes. All visits are conducted with a guide, with various offers for all audiences, including school groups of all ages. The observation of the animal can be done from three different points, 2 of them located within the reserve. You can also learn about the peculiarities of this species in the interpretation center.
