Pago Finca Elez is nestled in the municipality of El Bonillo close to the Sierra de Alcaraz. Within the estate, the Spanish Juniper tree (millennial, indigenous and protected) grows. This area has one of the highest concentrations of Spanish Junipers which are best conserved in Spain, some of these which are centennial species.
A land of aromas
The Spanish Juniper emits a characteristic aroma. An aroma that is capable of being conserved in its wood that used to be used in the construction of the smaller estate houses of the region. Aromatic herbs are also distinctive to this region such as rosemary, thyme and marjoram.
In the proximity of the Lagunas de Ruidera
Pago Finca Élez is located 18 kilometers from the Parque Natural de Lagunas de Ruidera, a place of great beauty, made up of a complex lagoon system made up of fifteen lagoons, which are the birthplace of the Guadiana River. In the rainy season, the fifteen lagoons overflow, flooding each other, forming beautiful waterfalls.
It is a place of great scenic value and with a diversity of environments. A space to discover without haste, enjoy its lagoons, with transparent waters and an intense turquoise blue color.
