The Sierra del Padrastro is a limestone “island mountain” that stands west of Cañete La Real, in the Guadalteba district, surrounded by farmlands. Its main peak, Padrastro (999 m. above sea level) forms a big cliff facing the village that can be seen from a long distance.

Most of the farmlands around this site are shoots so January, after the regular hunting season is over, is a good time for a visit.
