as well as some other small mountain ranges in central Spain.
Remnant populations survive in the Picos de Europa and other parts of the Cordillera Cantábrica along with some reintroductions. The largest population there is in the mountains north of Riaño. It is also found in southern Galicia near the border with Portugal. In northern Portugal 100 or so survive in the Peneda-Gerês National Park which adjoins the larger population in southern Galicia. The Gredos Ibex has been reintroduced to many former areas for hunting purposes.
