The River Guadaíra, on its course through Alcalá, gives rise to many riverside parks, in total around 120 hectares of green areas. These zones were declared a Natural Monument by the Governing Board of the Andalusian Regional Government on the 30th December 2011, in acknowledgment of its natural and eco-cultural values.
One of the singularities of the Natural Monument Riberas del Guadaíra is the combination of natural spaces and picturesque heritage resources. The most distinguishing features are the water flour mills, tracing the course river, as well as the imposing Fortified Site, vigilant on the top of the hill, from where you have a bird’s-eye view onto the town.
Along the riverbanks, there is an immense variety of species and plants, which give rise to natural areas of great beauty. Here are a few of note: Natural Oromana Park and pine forest, San Juan Park, Retama Park, the riverside forest 'El Bosque', San Francisco Park, the Old Garden Nursery and the Dragon Bridge Park.
