Protected Natural Environments in Jaén Province

Jaen boasts Spain's largest protected area, the immense wilderness of Cazorla Natural Park, with its grey, rocky peaks towering over thick forests of pine trees and babbling mountain streams, including the source of the great Guadalquivir river. The well-preserved Mediterranean woodland of the Sierra de Andújar Natural Park and the Despeñaperros Natural Park provides some of the few remaining refuges of the highly endangered pardel lynx and the rarely sighted wolf. Medieval hilltop castles are in abundance in the Sierra Mágina Natural Park and make ideal vantage points to view the Sierra's peaks, which are snow covered in winter.
