Cazorla, located on the east side of Jaén province, is the heart of Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park, which is the largest protected area in Spain and the second largest protected area in Europe. It was designated as a Biosphere reserve by UNESCO in 1983. It can be described as an orographic maze of valleys, limestone areas, mountains and plateaus which are of great importance in terms of hydrology (due to its large amount of rivers and streams); botany (it is possible to find Pinus nigra, Aleppo pine and other endemic species); wildlife, haunting and landscapes. As a consequence, it is one of the most visited natural spaces of Spain.
Cazorla, a picturesque and touristic town, is placed under the shade of the great Peña de los Halcones, with the Natural Park behind it and a huge “sea” of olive trees in front of it, which offers an impressive and unique view. La Yedra castle rises above the town, dominating all of its narrow streets, full of traditional houses and monuments. Following different paths, you will be able to go deeper into the Natural Park or to walk through the steep streets of the town and enjoy the Arabic-Andalusian atmosphere; to take unique and wonderful photographs, to retain sounds, colours and flavourings. You will also be able to visit its markets, where you will find typical products of the region or to taste the best tapas and dishes in its restaurants or bars.
