Parque Natural de la Albufera

The Albufera Natural Park is the largest of Valencia's six natural parks, making it one of the city's most notable attractions. The park is made up of a freshwater lagoon that is isolated from the Mediterranean Sea by some dunes called Saler. It is connected to the ocean through narrow waterways known as the Perello, the Perellonet, and the Pujol.
