Itinerary

El Alcazar is a recreational facility 6 km. northeast the village of Alcaucin, within the Sierra Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama Nature Reserve. It is one of the best places to watch forest birds in the Axarquia District and one of the ways to the highest summit in the reserve, La Maroma, at 2,065 metres above sea level.

We can enjoy two very emblematic species on the way to La Maroma from El Alcazar in December: the Alpine Accentor, a very friendly bird that loves wintering in the highest reaches of our limestone mountains, and the Golden Eagles, which will show their amazing display flights at this time of year over their territory around El Alcazar.
