Wanna know more about Jaén?
The first image that comes to mind when talking about Jaén is the olive tree. Or rather, the olive trees. Kilometers and kilometers of olive trees, to give the feeling that they cover everything in the province, making the landscape monotonous and boring.
 
Big mistake. If something abounds in Jaén it is the contrast. Anyone who dares to explore beyond the countryside will discover rugged mountain ranges where wild vegetation abounds, dehesas alternated with native forests and the broad Guadalquivir valley, a river that rises precisely between these mountains.

Four Natural Parks extend on its surface; as different from each other as rich in their heritage. With such a variety of spaces, it is not surprising that nature activities in Jaén have more and more acceptance.

Deer, wild boars, mountain goats and a good number of raptors are among the most outstanding species.
 
Although much smaller in surface, Despeñaperros Natural Park, located to the north, is also very large in natural wealth. Without forgetting its fauna, its high geological and landscape values ​​are the predominant note in this case.

In the northwest corner of the province, forming an almost perfect triangle, is the Sierra de Andújar Natural Park. In fact, it is part of a major mountain range, Sierra Morena, although it keeps its own peculiarities. Although there are those who know it because it houses the Sanctuary of the Virgen de la Cabeza, for naturalists it has more value because it is home to the largest Iberian lynx population in the world.
 
The last of these spaces is the Sierra Mágina Natural Park, in the south. Despite not being large on the surface, it houses a curious variety of landscapes that can be discovered through hiking.
