The Sierra de Andújar Nature Reserve is a special place, a wild and infinite place, where the oak covered hills and valleys stretch as far as the eye can see. Eagles, vultures, deer and many other species inhabit this area. These lands are also home to the largest population of the Iberian Lynx, the undisputed master of this area.
The dense forests of oak together with the thick undergrowth explain the name of the Sierra Morena (Brown). Indeed, even today, this area is considered the best example of Mediterranean forest on the Iberian Peninsula. In times gone by, the ravines and gorges provided refuge for bandits and outlaws fleeing justice. Sierra Morena was a dangerous place, where travelers could potentially be robbed at every bend in the road. A historical essence permeates the landscape and culture of one of the most spectacular places in Andalusia. Culture, architecture, nature and astronomy combine to offer those who visit the place a unique and unforgettable experience.
