Sierras, pastures, steppes, riverbanks, coastal marshes... few provinces in Spain can boast such a high variety and quality of ecosystems.
The Sierra de Alanís is located to the northeast of the province of Seville, bordering the provinces of Cordoba and Badajoz. The entire area belongs to the municipality of Alanís.

The 30-hectare La Muela Park is located to the east of the town, at the foot of one of the most significant archaeological sites in the region known as La Tablada.

The Dehesa de Abajo Concerted Nature Reserve is the contact zone between the southernmost area of the Aljarafe region and the Guadalquivir marshlands. The combination of Mediterranean forest and marshland habitat gives rise to an exceptional variety of plant and animal species.
