There are some great walks straight out of Cazorla town – all uphill to start with, but your reward is beautiful forest paths and fabulous panoramas of cliffs, crags and circling vultures. Agencies here offer a host of other activities locally, including canyoning in the parque natural and an exciting via ferrata for climbers at the neighbouring village of La Iruela.

Maps & Equipment

Good maps and information in anything except Spanish are hard to come by, but the main routes are well signposted and waymarked. Editorial Alpina's Sierra de Cazorla map is useful and sold in some Cazorla shops.

A few shops, including Alma Gaia, sell outdoor gear.
