A castle in the Sierra de Cazorla: La Iruela

In northeast Andalusia the majestic Sierra de Cazorla soars to a height of over 2,000 meters (6,500 feet). The rugged mountainous region east of Úbeda and Baeza is Spain's largest natural park and a paradise for hikers. Remarkable is the large collection of pine trees, which once covered vast parts of Spain but have survived there today only in this remote region. The park is home to vultures, eagles, wild sheep and Iberian Ibexes.

Attractions Sierra de Cazorla

Hike along the Rio Borosa

Through a narrow gorge in the Sierra de Cazorla

This hike, which is challenging on account of its length, leads through a narrow gorge in the nature reserve to the lagoons of Aguas Negras and Valdeazores. The trail will also lead you through several tunnels. The diverse animal life is a particular highlight here. You can turn back at any time, since you will be returning on the same trail anyway. (7 hrs, 25 km, elevation change: 660 m)

Hike from the Puente de las Herrerías to Cazorla

Crossing the legendary “bridge of the queen”

The Puente de las Herrerías was built, allegedly at night, for the Spanish queen Isabella. If you want to go on this moderately difficult hike through the Sierra de Cazorla, you should leave your car in Cazorla and take a taxi to the Puente de las Herrerías, where the trail begins. (4 hrs, 13 km, elevation gain: 550 m, loss: 760 m)
