Castillo de Alcalá de Guadaíra

Seville enchants

This vast green area owes its name to the groundwater that naturally rises from the subsoil since ancient times: the Aljarafe Cornice. Nestled in the urban centre, it offers a wide variety of spaces and environments to its visitors. 

The importance of the iron mining sector in Andalusia during its heyday is made clear at this old mining site. It consists of an old mine, active until the mid-20th century, as well as lifts, shafts and galleries (some transitable).

Located in the Sierra Norte Natural Park, the chestnut grove in Constantina is of great interest, as the chestnut is not a very common tree in the Sierra Norte. In addition to those found in Constantina, there are some spots in Cazalla de la Sierra and the odd isolated specimen in other places.

Like the Sierra de Becerrero, this mountainous area next to the town of Gilena belongs to the Sub-Baetic Zone, one of the outlying areas of the Baetic Mountains, and is made up of marl and limestone. The highest point in the sierra is the Acebuchosa peak, at 663 m.

The River Corbones is a tributary on the left bank of the River Guadalquivir. It rises in the Blanquilla, Mollina and Los Borbollones mountain ranges in the provinces of Cadiz and Malaga.

Los Tajillos is located on the northern edge of the Sierra de Estepa, commonly known as Becerrero, very close to the town of Estepa. 

This site is part of the Sierra del Becerrero, and has been declared a Site of Environmental Interest.
