Reserva de la Biosfera Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas

The Sierras de Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas Biosphere Reserve is located in the northeast of the province of Jaén. It is an extensive mountainous massif of abrupt relief, source of the Guadalquivir and Segura rivers, in which karst formations abound. Its inhabitants have maintained a secular relationship with their natural environment and the resources that it provided; hence the presence of settlements from very ancient times and the predominance of activities such as livestock and hunting.
