The site encompasses a range of hills with many cliffs and gullies and the Rivers Tajo and Tiétar. There are extensive areas of dense sclerophyllous scrub, small Quercus-dominated woodlands and areas of dehesa, as well as some Eucalyptus plantations.
This is a very important area for breeding raptors, particularly Aegypius monachus and also for Ciconia nigra. Breeding birds include seven of the 20 species in Europe that are restricted to the Mediterranean biome (when breeding).
