ZEPA Church of La Purificación of Almendralejo

This is the first Special Bird Protection Area (Zona de Especial Protección de Aves, ZEPA) which has been declared in an urban area in the whole of Extremadura. The main reason for this is its lesser kestrel colony which coexists with other falcons, white storks, and barn owls on a 16th-century construction in Gothic-Renaissance style of great historical and artistic importance.
