At some of the properties, hunting activity is carried out, usually through contracts with hunting companies. The Royal Hunting Ground is a walled area of about 1,500 hectares, dominated by cork oak and holm oak, with a large population of red deer and a smaller number of fallow deer. Inside, foxes, wild boars, mongooses and badgers can be found, as well as partridges, hoopoes, white storks, bee-eaters and various species of birds of prey.
