Central Bank of Honduras. View of the eastern part of the city. Around the city[ edit ] Looking west towards Juan A. Colonias represent relatively recent 20th-century middle class residential suburbssome known as residenciales for their upper income development, and these are continuously spreading while the barrios are old inner-city neighborhoods.
While the city administration divides the capital into barrios and colonias, the fact that there are hundreds of them makes it difficult to define the city's different regions, especially for those not familiar with the Central District. To have a better understanding of the city's regions, the metro area of the Central District can essentially be divided, first, into two sections: These two entities remain separated by the Choluteca River basin that runs between them.
Map showing Tegucigapa's contemporary Center, formed by over 40 neighborhoods The Tegucigalpa side of the District can be divided into five sections: For years, this area remained neglected and run down, but in recent times attempts have been made to revive the zone and bring back its colonial heritage. Several government offices, including the National Congress and City Hall as well as museums, parks, a cathedral and churches are located here.
Other upscale neighborhoods are Lomas del Guijarro, Loma Linda and Lomas del Mayab which house most of the apartment complexes in the city. Boulevard Suyapa and Boulevard Juan Pablo II are located south of the aforementioned boulevards, and they also form a busy commercial and financial district stretching through several neighborhoods such as Colonia Los Profesionales where the Presidential House is located; Colonia Florencia Norte where Multiplaza Mall is located; Colonia Miramontes, among others—housing several financial institutions, government offices, hotels, etc.
Beyond these neighborhoods sits the United Nations National Park on El Picacho Hill, one of the most popular destinations in the capital among its residents and visitors. Beyond the Park, stretching north and northwest of the city, upper income suburban neighborhoods such as El Hatillo sit on the sides of the hills, surrounded by heavy vegetation.

This area is home to Colonia Kennedy, the capital's largest neighborhood with more thanresidents. Fifty years later the park was consolidated as a natural area. Mauricio, together with his father, asked Bernis to try and influence Spanish dictator Francisco Franco into abandoning the plans. The group sought and obtained international support for their goals.
A group of European conservation experts — including Guy Monfort, Max Nicholson and Luc Hoffmann —then demonstrated the crucial importance of the area as a stopover for birds migrating between the European and African continents.
This alarmed European conservationists, leading various institutions and anonymous donors to offer to buy part of the property. Valverde, Hoffman, and Nicholson, in partnership with the British Nature Conservancy, formed an association that organised an international drive for funds to expand the park.
The altitude ranges from sea level to 40 meters above sea level. In it was listed by Unesco as a World Heritage Site, enabling the establishment of programs to preserve and manage the area.

Historically, these vital wetlands have been constantly threatened by schemes to increase local agricultural output and tourism. In this park was twinned with the Regional Natural Park Camargue in France, with which it shares anthropological and ethnographic aspects. Inhectares of land on the coastline were expropriated by the former Ministerio de Medio Ambiente Ministry of the Environment for protection.
The rainy seasons are intermediate, occurring in spring and in autumn; autumn especially can produce torrential rains caused by the accumulation during the summer of heat in nearby large bodies of water, and the arrival of polar air masses. In winter, however, thermal anticyclones may occur locally.
The most significant feature of the climate is the three to five months of dry weather in the summer, when it is dominated by the subtropical anticyclone. Flora[ edit ] There are many species of flora in the park: Of special interest are the species Vulpia fontquerana, Tursica linaria, Juniperus macrocarpa maritime juniperMicropyropsis tuberosa, Hydrocharis morsus-ranae or Thorella verticillatinundata, many of them endangered. Non-native species such as eucalyptus, Acacia longifolia, Gomphocarpus fruticosus, Nicotiana glauca or Carpobrotus edulis cat's claw are removed by the park service.
Flora of the transdunes[ edit ] Dunes in the park The ecosystem of the mobile dunes, also known as transdunes, which are formed by the prevailing south-west wind, is almost nonexistent elsewhere in the Iberian Peninsula.

The harshness of this ecosystem is evident in the adaptations made by some plant species to its special conditions: The gradual burial of vegetation, especially of trees that emerge then die, killed by the slow movement of sand, is one of the most well-known phenomena in the beach area of the park.
Fauna[ edit ] There are 20 species of freshwater fish cataloged in the Park, 10 of amphibians, 13 of reptiles, 37 of mammals and non-marine birds, of which have nesting seasons in the park.
Birds[ edit ] Purple heron The following is a list of birds that inhabit the park: Mammals[ edit ] Deer, rabbit, European hedgehog, genet, wild cat, wild boar, iberian lynx endangered speciesdormouse, mongoose, bat, cave bat, greater horseshoe bat, buzzard bat, shrew, otter, mouse, polecat, fox, badger, water rat, black rat, lesser noctule. Iberian lynxone of the most emblematic species of the park Main article: Iberian lynx The Iberian lynx, whose habitat is restricted to the Iberian Peninsula, is the most endangered of the big cats.
Precipitous drops in population counts due to the drastic reduction of fish stocks that are its main food source led to its being declared a protected species in In Portugal recovery efforts to preserve its remaining habitat have resulted in the creation of the Sierra Malcata Natural Reserve. These conservation efforts are threatened by a high mortality rate among the cats and recurring violations of laws prohibiting cars from entering the park or driving on its roads, although, as some agencies have reported, the causes of death are not always clear.
The precarious survival situation of this animal has become an emblematic symbol of the park for the general public. They may have been introduced during the Moorish Conquest of Spain in the 8th century, or they may have escaped from a herd introduced from the Canary Islands in by the Marquis de Molina as beasts of burden. Preparque[ edit ] Abalario—Asperillo. It shelters abundant wildlife, including the Iberian lynx.

Part of the marshes have been converted to rice cultivation. These marshes are the only ones still flooded by the tides all the others rely solely on freshwater streams and rain for replenishmentand consequently, flamingos and avocets are found in them. Various impact studies and environmental groups have warned repeatedly of problems that threaten the region's flora, fauna, water and soil.
While the pressure of urbanization and its various demands on local ecosystems has been a concern throughout the years, this is not the only associated risk factor. Impact of infrastructure[ edit ] There have been a number of problems related to infrastructure near the park.
