Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas N P is the largest Natural Park in Spain and second in Europe. It is located at the East of the province.
Moving the clock forward to the 80’s, it was identified by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve. The EU then recognized it as an area of Special protection for Birds. In 1986 the Spanish government declared it a Natural Park.
The geology of these sierras is formed by limestone, with dramatic landscapes of sheer cliffs, gorges, waterfalls and streams of crystal clear water. The most typical woodland is Pine forests, and the park boasts yet one more superlative as home to the largest expanse of forest in the whole Iberian Peninsula. In the park, there is a total of 2,170 separate species of plant of which 35 are endemism.
The park is also known for being the birthplace of the River Guadalquivir. Kind off paradoxically, way back in the 18th century, the sierras was declared a maritime province, serving as it did both military and civil construction. The timbers were used in the construction of naval vessels, and the old tobacco factory in Seville is a present day example which pays testimony to those times.
