Camping - Campamentos - Viajes fin de curso en Cazorla

The Sierra de Cazorla, Segura and las Villas which is also home to a variety of wildlife including the bearded vulture, also known as the lammergeyer, wild sheep known as mouflons, eagles and wild boar, is the largest protected nature reserve in Spain.
Consequently, when the question “What is there to do and see there and in Cazorla itself?” is asked, the responses are numerous and varied.
With regard to the surrounding areas of the Campsite – Puente de las Herrerias – and other sectors of the park, there are a myriad of natural routes through all parts which show off the wild beauty of the whole reserve.
