Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Nature Reserve


Description

This is the largest protected nature area in Spain. That's an achievement in itself, but it has more. The Guadalquivir and Segura Rivers begin here. It has pinewoods containing species such as the Cazorla violet, a narcissus that is claimed to be the smallest in the world, and a particular carnivorous plant. Some of its enclaves to be recommended are the Las Acebeas forest, the Segura de la Sierra castle, the Garbanzal gorge, the La Cerrada la Bolera canyon, the Ruta de los Miradores (the route of viewing points) and the Agua de Tíscar cave. What animals can you find there? You are sure to find it exciting to see a mountain goat or the flight of a griffon vulture. And if you are lucky, you will see a bearded vulture, which have returned after becoming extinct in these lands in 1986. What's on offer in the park? You will find areas for watching wildlife and paths that are of interest for birdwatchers. There are many options available: routes by car, routes on horseback, kayaking...
