Montejunto Mountain, located between Cadaval and Alenquer councils, is the highest natural viewpoint of Estremadura region, rising 666m above the average sea level. Considered a higly valuable place in ecological and landscape terms, this mountain belongs to the Central Massif of Estremadura region and presents a geological structure with dozens of caves and grottos, as well as Pre-historic necropolis and fossils. It has also a very typical microclimate, characterised by the transition from maritime continental influence, providing it distinctive fauna and flora that are different from the surrounding ecosystems. The vegetable communities of wild chestnut trees, oak trees and pine trees deserve a special attention, as well as the 115 bird species already identified in the area. In this mountain, there are still many windmills across the landscape and some viewpoints offering wonderful views over the whole region.
