Mas de Bunyol

Mas de Bunyol is a vulture observatory built inside a Vulture Reserve. Visits to the bird observation centre are designed to coincide with the birds feeding time. Given the proximity to the scene, this provides a unique opportunity. The visit is once per day everyday of the year at the same hour. From the Observatory it is possible to watch hundreds of vultures at few meters distance while José Ramón, “buitreman”, feeds them.

Golden rules

Mas de Bunyol is situated inside a Wild Vulture Reserve. As all free animals, vultures are very vulnerable to human impact. It is, thus, of our highest priority to respect and preserve their well-being. For this reason, this project, achieved with Loly’s and Jose Ramon’s perseverance and tenacity over the last 25 years, wouldn’t be possible without some golden rules to be respected by our visitors.
