The reserve combines elements of great interest owing to their animal and plant resources.

It is situated in the centre-west area of Cordoba province and is sheltered by Sierra Morena. Its structure is made up of slate and quartzite. Two types of vegetation exist in the Reserve, one which corresponds to Mediterranean forest (mainly holm oaks and cork trees) and the other is situated on the banks of the watercourses (mostly willows, ash trees, poplars and alders). The rivers Bembezar, Guadiato and Ciudadeja cross the Reserve, creating reservoirs along the way.One of the leading colonies of griffon vultures in Andalusia can be found in Sierra de Hornachuelos, and one of the last colonies of black vultures in Sierra Morena.
