La Rinconada is an eminently agricultural town; therefore, it barely has space for natural vegetation. This increases the relevance of the riparian areas of the River Guadalquivir as it passes through this town, since some sections of the river are of high landscape and ecological value, with abundant riparian vegetation and associated fauna.
This Special Conservation Area (SCA) covers some 4,772 ha, mostly in the province of Seville. This site features prominently in the Andalusian Natura 2000 network owing to its special importance for the conservation of riparian habitats, certain fish species included in the Habitats Directive and, in general, the river ecosystem and the connectivity it provides as an ecological corridor.
Some 17 kilometres to the southeast, the River Corbones flows into a vast body of water, the reservoir built for irrigation purposes.
La Puebla de Cazalla’s reservoir was completed in the mid-1990s to irrigate over 3,400 hectares of land in the municipalities of La Puebla de Cazalla and Marchena.
The lakes are a beauty spot located in the lower foothills of the Sierra Morena. Their main arteries are the Rivera de Cala and the reservoir with the same name.
The nearest town, about 3 kilometres away, is El Ronquillo, although this beautiful natural spot is located in the municipality of Guillena.
