The info center is for the nature park, not the vulture feeding place!

Ah I see thanks, just been watching some videos on the vulture feeding and the story of Manu & Leonardo, its such a shame the laws were changed it worked for many years vultures cleaning up the dead dead farm animals. I guess BSE had a lot to do with the change in the law but they show no interest in helping to save the birds they are removing the food source from.

hola e estado barias veces por las buitreas i e vitos unos 12 bolado y la cabaña pa verlos con prismatico nuca e vito que los alimentaran es buena ruta esa sepuede subir ala maroma por hai

I see nobody has volunteered to translate this so here goes:

"Hi, I`ve been there several times to see the vultures and I`ve seen about 12 flying and the hide to see them, with binoculars. I have never seen them being fed.. It`s a good route and you can climb there with ropes."

By the way, I think "Maroma" refers to the mountain on the slope of which you find the feeding station.

The coloured lines on my map indicate nice, short walking routes  (1½ or 2 h depending wher you start) - not to the summit, however!!!

Have you actually found info that it is not used any more?

No can't find any concrete info on if they still feed there or not, a youtube video from up there and I asked if he knows if they still feed there and  mike in Jerez translated his reply for me.. posted above.
