We will walk across a very well preserved sample of Mediterranean forest composed of Holm and Portuguese Oaks, Aleppo and Maritine Pines, and even a few Spanish Firs, the gems of the Sierra de las Nieves, a nature reserve with Natural Park status in the Andalusian Network of Protected Natural Sites and Birds Directive Special Protection Area (ES6170006) in the European Natura 2000 Network that will soon became the third National Park in Andalusia.

June is a good time to walk in this shady forest, before it gets too hot in midsummer, to enjoy the songs of Woodlarks, the calls of Bonelli’s Warblers and the display dives of the Booted Eagles.
