Four Coves

Los Cocedores (Almería), La Carolina, La Higuerica and Calarreona
-Aguilas-

Spanish name: Cuatro Calas

Protected Wildlife Reserve

Los Cocedores The South of the Region is home to one of the most beautiful protected areas in Murcia: a wildlife reserve comprising the coves of Calarreona, la Higuerica, la Carolina and los Cocedores, the latter in the province of Almería.
 
The wind and the sea have whimsically eroded and shaped the volcanic rocks, creating some amazing forms. The area is also home to an archaeological site with marine vertebrate fossils and a number of cave homes, some used as kilns and others as esparto grass maceration chambers.
 
Declared a protected landscape in 1992 and included in the Red Natura 2000 network as a site of Community importance, the area is inhabited by native plants such as the Halocnemum strobilaceum or “garbancillo”, as well as local animals including pilgrim hawks, wetland birds, rollers and red-tailed lizards.
