Spanish name: Barrancos de Gebas

Protected Wildlife Reserve

Barrancos de Gebas This desert-like area Southeast of Sierra Espuña, declared Protected Nature Reserve in 1995, is made mostly of clay and nimtrees forming spectacular ruts, canyons and ravines. In fact, this unique area is known in the region as the "moonlike landscape".
 
This Protected Area, with a 2271-hectare surface in the municipalities of Alhama de Murcia and Librilla, is home to embalse de Algeciras, a reservoir with a water storage capacity of nearly 47 cubic hectometers. The reservoir is included in the Tagus-Segura diversion water infrastructures as well as in the Segura River Flood Control Plan. In the reservoir area, the main plant species are grasses and typical limestone bushes, whereas the main animals are little rodents and some small mammals.
 
Getting there from Murcia: Take the A7/E15 freeway towards Lorca-Almería; get off at the Alhama de Murcia exit and head for Sierra Espuña on the C3315 road (Gebas, Pliego, Mula). After some 12 kilometers, you will find a road on your right with the sign “El Mirador de Gebas casas rurales”; soon after that you will be on the dirt road that will take you all the way to Gebas Gullies.  Once there, there is another dirt road that goes to the reservoir of the Algeciras Ravine.
