The route begins at the El Hornico centre. Leave your car in the car park at the Botanical Gardens and walk towards the old Forest House, now converted into a nature-education centre, hostel and rental accommodation. Before reaching the first building, on the right-hand side you will see a sign indicating the start of the route, and behind it an old bridlepath leading up the side of the mountain. A wooden post with a red stripe marks kilometre 0. Along the route you will come across other wooden signs pertaining to other routes, so make sure you only follow the signs that have red stripes across the top.

Senda de Pescadores Hiking Route

Senda de Pescadores Hiking Route


The River Guadalentín is made up of small streams that flow down from the area around the peak of Majal de la Carrasca in the Cabrilla mountains and join up with another stream; the Arenales. At this point the river is large enough to have a year-round flow, and makes its way south along the floor of a deep ravine. At the Carretas ford it is joined by the San Pedro, an intermittent stream, and later by the Tomillos de Gualay at the Cerrada de la Canaliega gorge. The river continues to flow south and is joined at the bottom of a deep ravine by a series of streams known as the Acebadillas. It is then swelled by the Frío, a stream that takes its name from the gorge in which it meets the Guadalentín, before the river itself then flows into the River Guadiana Menor near the Negratín reservoir between the municipalities of Cuevas del Campo and Zújar.

Route by car: Hinojares - Quesada (Route of the Nasrids)

Route by car: Hinojares - Quesada (Route of the Nasrids)


Although the route passes through natural areas of extraordinary beauty, the main attractions on this route are historical and cultural. You will cross an area that was once a frontier land between Moors and Christians, remaining as such for three centuries until Granada was definitively conquered in 1492. The route is essential for a proper understanding of the culture and uniqueness of the lands that made up the former Settlement of Cazorla. The Settlement was created in 1231 and depended on the Archbishopric of Toledo until it was abolished in 1811 by the Spanish Cortes or Parliament in Cadiz.
