The Spanish desert

From Bardenas Reales, a semi-desert or badlands of some 420 km2 in the south of Navarra, we had seen many great pictures which had aroused our interest in this landscape.

The Bardenas is in the southeast of Navarra, bordering Aragon. It is located in the middle of the depression of the Ebro valley and can best be reached from Arguedas, where a free caravan parking with service station is provided by the town. (42.173408, -1.591441) From there you reach the information centre after a short drive, which provided us with a map of the route we could easily do with the camper.

The soils are made up of clay, chalk and sandstone and have been eroded by water and wind creating surprising shapes, canyons, plateaus, tabular structures and isolated hills, called cabezos. Bardenas lacks urban areas, vegetation is scarce and the many streams that cross the territory stay dry most of the year.

We spent some time with shooting panorama pictures on interesting spots.

A good team
I think this pinackle has different names ūüėČ
When the sun went down, the light got more interesting and the colours of the different layers appeared.
No wonder that Bardenas Reales was used as set for movies
Flower of the Day
