Sierra de Cazorla

The sierras of the province of jaén are the perfect stage to observe the behaviour of its animal inhabitants. During September and October the rutting season occurs, whose bellowing sounds are the hoarse call of the males in heat that are the prelude to a noisy fight with their powerful antlers to win the greatest number of females.

This spectacle of nature can be seen in all its splendour in the sierra de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas nature Park. Wise men poets and geographers of the Caliphate of Cordoba refered to the forests of this nature park as the supreme jungles. They are mountainous labyrinth of precipices and limestone, of steep canyons and streams that comprise one of the most extensive and valuable forest masses and wildlife habitats in southern Europe. The most interesting itinerary for the excursionist is along the course of the River Guadalquivir, from the reservoir of El Tranco to its headwaters. Travelling it you will see if you are lucky red deer, mouflons, mountain goats, otters, wildcats, vultures, eagles or peregrine falcons. To explore it you only have to go room in one of the many rural houses or mountain hotels there and enjoy the 214.000 hectares of the park. Nature awaits you.
