The PIO is situated in a typical treeless plain, dedicated to grazing and winter cereals. It is another of the pseudo steppe areas in the district together with the Zorita Plains, the Trujillo Plains and the Magasca Plains. Although the site is not within a designated protected area, it is one of the most visited for steppe species. The fact that it is not protected does not devalue its importance for birds. It lies with the Important Bird Area IBA 296 Trujillo-Torrecillas de la Tiesa.
