The Nature Park Sierras Subbéticas has a lot to offer. This limestone area has a succession of peaks, crags, ravines and a host of karst formations, all dotted with vegetation dominated by extensive olive groves and some endemic species. Water plays a vital role in this environment. Rivers mould the rock forming deep canyons such as the one at El Bailón, which you will discover on the hike along it. You will enjoy an incredible tranquillity and gorges views when hiking in the Sierra Subbética.
Your base will be the charming hotel Zuhayra in the Village of Zuheros, which is one of the most beautiful villages in Andalusia, also famous for its excellent goat cheese. A walk around the maze of narrow white streets in Zuheros, with its castle and viewpoints, is a good way to discover its important Moorish history.
From here you will two very different hikes in hidden valleys, to silent hilltops, passing through enchanted landscapes. Disconnect from a rushed world and discover Andalusia while you find yourself on charming hikes of this getaway.
