The Dehesa de Abajo Designated Nature Reserve is located where the south of the Aljarafe region meets the Guadalquivir Marshes. It combines Mediterranean scrub and marshland habitats, and the result is a wealth of flora and fauna.

Pure scrubland, stone pines and large wild olive trees, among others. There are flamingos, black terns, spoonbills, red-crested pochards, mallards, grebes, black-tailed godwits, the endangered red-knobbed coot and the marbled teal. Occasionally you can even see interesting species such as the white-headed duck, which is an endangered species. In the area of pine woods, you can see birds of prey such as the black kite, booted eagle and kestrel, while the wild olive groves are home to the largest colony of white storks in Spain.

The paths that run through the reserve will also show you the trails of animals, often more difficult to see in the flesh, such as foxes, badgers and genets, which find a variety of food here: invertebrates such as worms, small mammals like rabbits, and even wild fruit.

In the Reserve and its surrounding area there are trails ideal to explore on foot, by bike or on horseback. Special mention should be made of lakes such as La Rianzuela. Next to the lake there are two hides, where you can watch many species that live there without disturbing them. Very close by is the Cañada de los Pájaros Designated Nature Reserve, where you can comfortably observe the birds found most commonly in the Doñana Nature Park.
