its natural park Infinite water and sky, a million trees, corners of magic, prehistory, history and present to surprise all who visit us.
In addition, at the Casa de La Luz, we assist the traveler by helping him to gather all the necessary information for his adventure in Cazorla.
The largest protected area in Spain, the second largest after the Black Forest. These mountains were declared a maritime province in 1748, National Hunting Reserve in 1960, in 1983 Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, Natural Park in 1986, Special Protection Area for Birds since 1988, Site of Community Importance since 2008, Heritage of Humanity together with the accession of the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism of EUROPARC in 2004, Andalusian Hunting Reserve … Scientists and managers in the fields of biology, history and the social sector have found a lot of special in this enclave and Joaquin Araújo wanted to digest the science and spread his message, as his vital objective has always been, in a traveling exhibition, visited by more than 180,000 people in different provinces of Spain.
Under Your Feet, try to bring the hidden treasures of the subsoil to all our visitors. In this exhibition you will discover how our mountains were formed and what processes give birth to a cave, which ones to grow and transform, and which ones to die. Also, on the latest scientific data we have, we tell how, sometimes, life manages to colonize these places, recreating a real natural ecosystem in which a mixture of synthetic replicas can be observed,
With real cave plants. Stalactites, stalagmites, the remains of the last bear of Cazorla, a video of an endemic fish of the Iberian Peninsula discovered in a cave of the Park when it was already beginning to form a new species adapted to the darkness of the cavern, a huge reproduction of a beetle who only lives in another cave in the Park.
Science advances at the speed that a speleologist crawls through muds, passageways and wells. The samples they take bring new discoveries to the biologist-speleologist. In the caves of the Natural Park of Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas, there are no surprises for biology, and new species for science are described.
Many times these species will be unique to a region, a cave. Publicizing these riches cannot cost more than discovering them.
That is the objective of this Frondosa Naturaleza exhibition hall, in Cazorla, to discover what you have Under Your Feet.
An old mill restored, 200 years making flour. An old hydroelectric, 50 years giving light. A project for the future, telling the traveler what he can see in the
Sierra, what can you live on your trip. The Flour Mill Museum with that surprisingly advanced machinery, in wood and stone, of a mill that today grinds curiosity and makes you want to know Cazorla, of being in Cazorla.
Walking through the old restored rooms where the miller and his family worked every day with the eternal background music of the turning of the stones,
You will learn how our grandparents lived from the fruits of the countryside. Wheat, almortas, beans or chickpeas arrive here to become flour for fine pastries, stews and breads, mountain crumbs or feed for cattle. Look back at how an economy as archaic as the human condition worked, as current as the human condition, bartering of maquilas, bargaining, speculation and competition, using measures – bushels, celemines, quarters – more or less normalized, more or less truncated.
Today 3D projections, touch screens, interactive programs and, above all, the work of our guides … And the Mill and its ghosts.
