Torre del Vinagre Visitors Center
The Natural Park of the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas, encloses in its 214,336 hectares, a wide mosaic of ecosystems. The general view of the Interpretation Center and the complexity of its physical components and the biological diversity included in them, requires, when disseminating these natural values, the existence of an Interpretation Center, known as the Visitor Center of the Tower of Vinegar.
In the Visitor Center of the «Tower of Vinegar» these ecological complexes that compose them are exposed, offering the visitor an overview of the nature of these mountains. The Visitor Center of the «Torre del Vinagre» will teach you to discover the secrets of the five types of environments with great aesthetic content that house Las Sierras de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas.
