Welcome to Parque Natural Sierra de Hornachuelos
The Parque Natural Sierra de Hornachuelos is a 600-sq-km area of rolling hills in the Sierra Morena, northwest of Almodóvar del Río. The park is densely wooded with a mix of holm oak, cork oak and ash, and is pierced by a number of thickly wooded river valleys. It is renowned for its eagles and other raptors, including a colony of rare black vultures.
The pleasant small town of Hornachuelos on the park's southern fringe, standing above a small reservoir on the Río Bembézar, makes the obvious base for enjoying the park's quiet charms.
