The Gredas de Bolnuevo, natural monument (20/03/2019)

The Executive of the Region of Murcia has approved today, at the proposal of the Ministry of Employment, Universities, Enterprise and Environment, the declaration as a natural monument of the Gredas de Bolnuevo, in the municipality of Mazarrón.

The singularity, beauty and rarity of the natural elements and geological formations of the Gredas de Bolnuevo make this area worthy of special protection that entails the adoption of conservation measures that ensure its preservation.

Its classification in the category of Natural Monument is justified by the relevant geological interest of the enclave and its scientific, cultural and landscape value.

The space protected with this figure covers a total area of ​​2.41 hectares.

The declaration is based on the high value and uniqueness that the Gredas represent as more representative examples of differential erosion or alveolar erosion 'in honeycomb', consequence of the greater or lesser wear of the relief, depending on the different hardness of the materials of the ground.

The natural environment of the Gredas de Bolnuevo also houses an abundant collection of fossil remains, which include the remains of corals and some bivalve molluscs - of special rarity.

The environmental group also collects significant geological evidence of the tectonic history of the area, which is evidenced by an outcrop of fractured dolomites or the presence of verticalized fault planes.

Also, the Gredas are nestled between the extensive beach of Bolnuevo and the landscape of special attractiveness of the sun of the Sierra de las Moreras.

This semi-arid environment is home to an ecosystem of extraordinary singularity, dominated by scrub forest masses such as espartal, tomillar or romeral, which serve as sustenance for species of great importance such as the black tortoise, the ocellated lizard or the birds of prey, Bonelli's eagle or peregrine falcon, among other.

It is the second Natural Monument that is declared in the Region of Murcia, after the Arab Mountain of Yecla, in March 2016.
