Environment

 

The Paraíso del Huéznar is situated at the most emblematic place of the Sierra Norte de Sevilla Natural Park. Natural monuments (the waterfalls, the iron mine), the typical “gallery” forest vegetation, river springs, the sound of the water in many places. And you enjoy all this, nearby access to the “Via Verde”, walking tracks, old cattle tracks, and areas to take a picnic and relax (Isla Margarita y Molino del Corcho).

 

The house is situated in the very heart of the Natural Park “Sierra Norte de Sevilla”, a protected area since 1989, an area of 177.000 hectares north of Seville. The Sierra Norte is part of the Sierra Morena, the mountain range of more than 400 km from west to east, that also includes the Natural Parks of the Sierra de Aracena (Huelva) and of Hornachuelos (Córdoba).

 

The Sierra Norte de Sevilla is a semi-mountainous area (between 260 and 968m), consists of forests and pasture land with oak trees, and of the typical “gallery forests” along the few rivers that run from north to south, towards the Guadalquivir river.

 

Enjoy with your family and friends some of the most beautiful natural environments of Andalusia, "Greenway in the Sierra Norte" situated only 200 meters.

Activities

 

The area, with such beautiful natural spaces, has many opportunities for outdoor activities, such as walking and tracking, cycling, fishing in the Huéznar river, mountain climbing in the Cerro del Hierro. Or simply refresh yourself and take a bath in the Huéznar river. Just a few steps away from the Paraiso del Huéznar begins the Vía Verde “Sierra Norte de Sevilla”, the former railway track of 18 km that has been prepared for walking and cycling. It leads to San Nicolas first and then further to the “Cerro del Hierro”, the old iron mine with its characteristic red rocks.

 

Today in our country there are more than 7,000 km. of railway lines that do not provide rail service. Not because it means that they have no further use. The Department of the Environment is enabling all these miles for use and enjoyment of walkers and cyclists.

The villages

 

Many historic places around can be visited at short distance. We choose these three villages, because we are on the crossing of the old roads that connect them. Since the earlier times, from the Neolithic to the times of the Celts, and later the Romans, to the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque… Until today, still these roads are important within the province.
