AMAZING!

Every step you take is beautiful! It's worth the long walk up to the lakes. 24 k. Just get a good start early in August or it will be to hot to climb.

It is a huge nature park with a safe but precipitous mountain road - coaches have no problems. The villages and so-called tourist centre are environmentally friendly making for a very low population density in the park as a whole. In a single day's driving, stopping at pigeon pass (the top) we saw a dozen or so griffon vultures coming... More

Drive from the A44 towards Jaen and Ubeda look for the A 315 and A 319 to Cazorla. Prepare your self for a stunning mountain drive winding up to 1000 metres before reaching the divide. Stop at the lookout and see the stunning view, particularly Arroyo Frio in the valley below. Continue slowly (steep and winding road) till you reach... More

The river is quite impressive but the hiking starts not so interesting after 6.5 km we had enough . Only at the fifth km the road starts to be exciting and this only for 1.5 km. Even though the river is impressive the road is wide and not too exciting too calm ...

Start by driving along the A319 to the Torre del Vinagre visitor centre and then drive the 1K to the visitor centre which you'll find by driving (literally) down the road opposite. Walk from here by turning left out of the car park and turn right in a couple of hundred metres to follow the river upwards .............. ever upwards.... More

You really should go to the Embalsa de Tranco and visit the village of Hornos at the end of the Embalsa. Beautiful views from there.

This is our first visit at this time of year. Love it! Quiet roads, hotels, trails and can stop to enjoy all the sites. We arrived after a weekend of snow and changed to beautiful sunshine. In the park you can do as little or as much as you like. Walk or drive but best to get out and enjoy.... More

Words cannot describe this beautiful and unspoilt national park. I am so lucky to live within an hour of here especially with the new connection road North of Jaén to Ubeda. I've taken a drive around the area twice now with family and friends. Cazorla is a lovely little mountain town with stunning views and a beautiful town square. Driving... More

We took the hike along the Barossa River, seeing deer, wild boar and mountain goats. The water is crystal clear and freezing, the structure of the mountains intriguing and everywhere you look the view is amazing. We are a family of 5 and the park has something for everybody. We stayed at the Hotel Rural Convento de la santa maria... More

This has been our venue for spending Christmas and New Year for several years. We make our present to ourselves out of taking an escorted off-road excursion into the restricted areas. Since we have a couple of small dogs, we hire an entire 4x4 and guide and, with the guide's expert information, we get to see parts and animals that,... More
