Control of the Cabrera

Singular places

0, Marmolejo

Another privileged place is the Control de La Cabrera, in Marmolejo (Jaén). The great advantage of this enclave is that it now has electricity that can be taken directly from an outside socket on the wall of the guard's guard house.

The access path runs along a relatively easy forest track. This track is taken from the town of Marmolejo itself, after crossing the bridge over the Guadalquivir at the spa.

Just on the north bank of the river, take a right turn towards La Aliseda. Follow these signs and this road for 12.5 km until you reach the closed gate of the control. There you can leave your vehicle and place things on the other side by entering the pedestrian gate.

This point is especially suitable for those fans with their own telescopes and equipment in search of an outstanding sky and with a light socket to connect their equipment.
