Beschrijving

In the heart of Sierra Morena

The Sierra de Andújar is one of the most important hunting reserves in Spain.

The Park covers the townships of Andújar, Baños de la Encina, Villanueva de la Reina and Marmolejo. It is situated to the Northeast of the province, in the middle of the Sierra Morena, a partially mountainous area with varied morphology and altitude. The inhabitants of the area work, essentially, in cattle-breeding, preferably breeding bulls for bullfights. Thus, the forest resources are an important part of the economy of the region, especially in the harvesting of cork. It was declared a Nature Reserve in 1989 and constitutes one of the most important hunting reserves in Spain.
