Grazalema Natural Park

We are located within the Sierra de Grazalema Natural Park, which extends for 535 km² through the provinces of Cádiz and Málaga, at altitudes from 250m to 1654m above sea level. It is part of the southernmost mountain range in Europe (as the final part of the Betic Mountain Range) and one of the areas of enormous environmental importance, not only in Andalusia but in the entire Iberian Peninsula. The landscape, dotted with small, delightful White Villages, ranges from wide valleys to rocky precipices and deep gorges. The mountains create a special microclimate of rich vegetation of up to more than 1,300 different kinds of plants, many of them dating back to the Ice Age, which have survived here due to the protected southern latitude.

The Natural Park was declared a ‘Biosphere Reserve’ by UNESCO in 1977, and is considered by the European Union as a ‘Special Protection Area for Birds (SPA). Not in vain, the Sierra provides shelter to 117 different species of birds, both permanent and migratory.

Among the permanent species, you will find small and large birds of prey, highlighting the Imperial Eagle, the Golden Eagle, the Bonelli’s Eagle and the Booted Eagle, as well as the Kite, the Lesser Kestrel, the Buzzard, the Peregrine Falcon, the Barn Owl. and the Eagle Owl. But, among all the large birds, the king is undoubtedly the omnipresent Griffon Vulture, which chooses these mountains to make one of the great colonies in Europe.

Other frequent birds are the golden Oriole, the black-red Hoopoe, the incombustible Woodpecker and the funny Bee-eater.

Among the migratory birds that cross the Strait of Gibraltar every two years, the two most common are the Pink Flamingo and the Stork.
