Sierra de Andújar Natural Park

Sierra de Andújar Natural Park

The Sierra de Andújar Natural Park, a mid-mountain, is a magnificent example of a Mediterranean ecosystem. The most extensive patches of natural vegetation in Sierra Morena can be seen in this environment.

It is not difficult to see in the sky of the Sierra de Andújar Natural Park the spectacular flights of the golden, Bonelli's and imperial eagles, the latter being unique in the Iberian Peninsula and having one of its last refuges in this area. Three carrion species can also be seen: the griffon vulture, the black vulture and the Egyptian vulture.

Of tourist interest are the Sanctuary of the Virgen de la Cabeza, where every May the oldest pilgrimage in Spain is held, the reservoirs of Jándula and Encinarejo, the Cercado del Ciprés environmental complex, which has a botanical garden and a Nature Classroom, among other facilities, or the Mirador del Peregrino.
