WATER ADORES THE NATURAL PARK

altThe River Guadalquivir, the body of water that breathes life into Andalusia, has its source in the Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park. For this reason, it is said that Andalusia is born in these mountains. The River Segura also begins here, and so the park is the source of the two rivers that generate the most wealth in the south of Spain.

The abundance of water in the park is something you will marvel at, and it proves particularly refreshing to the senses in the context of the area's Mediterranean climate.

Water adores the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas Natural Park. It is irresistably drawn to the park's mountains and forests and flows through the landscape by as many routes as it can find. Water flows across the surface of the park, shaping the landscape and forming valleys, ravines and canyons; it works its way into the very heart of the land and carves out an enigmatic world of caves and grottoes. It travels via plants and animals, brings life to even the most inaccessible corners of the mountains and allows itself to be harnessed by humans, collected in serene reservoirs between wooded slopes or used to provide vital irrigation for orchards and olive groves.
