Lagunas de Laguardia
The name Lagunas de Laguardia corresponds to the four wetlands located near this village in the Rioja Alavesa.
Three of the lakes are natural, internally-drained lakes, while the one that is closest to Laguardia, the Prao de la Paul, is artificial and origin and owes its existence to the construction of a small dam.
Declared a Protected Biotope, it is included in the Natura 2000 Network and in the Ramsar List of Wetlands of International Importance.
It consists of a lake complex made up of four wetlands (Prao de la Paul, Carralogroño, Carravalseca and Musco).
