Los Alcornocales

The Los Alcornocales Natural Park comprises of 168, 661 hectares of rugged mountainous forest and holds some of the highest biodiversity levels in Western Europe, harboring 264 species of vertebrate including 14 species of breeding raptor and the occasional Iberian Lynx, the worlds most endangered feline. Cork Oak forest, from which the protected area derives its name, is the predominant habitat although the park contains significant floral diversity including 40 species of fern and many other species not normally associated with Andalucia, including hawthorn, alder, strawberry tree and holly.

This region also contains a great variety of archeology stretching over 30,000 years of human history, including Neanderthal, Neolithic, Phoenician, Roman, Visigothic, Moorish and Christian origin, much of which is little visited.

SierraWalks can arrange self guided or guided visits to any of the sites of interest of the region and suggest bespoke itineraries to maximize the enjoyment of your visit to this incredible area.
