Finish the year on horseback under the Andalusian sun in South of Spain ! Located in the south-east of Andalusia and Spain, in the Gulf of Almeria, the Cabo de Gata Park is one of the jewels of Andalusia, Spain and the western Mediterranean. It is probably one of the few spaces on the Mediterranean coast that remained untouched today. Since 1997, the park of volcanic origin is declared a "biosphere reserve" by UNESCO for its ecological wealth.
