Program

We leave Andújar towards Viñas de Peñallana on the J-501 road. At about km. 14.400, after passing the Los Pinos restaurant, take a road that comes out on the right; going into it you will reach Los Escoriales, leaving a small bullring or tentadero on your left and, after about 100 m., you will come to a track on the right that you will take; here you can see an interesting shady area occupied preferably by cork trees, in some places as a mature or climatic community on a sedimentary type substrate. When we begin to descend, we leave the Cerro del Moro on our right, an elevation that maintains a well-developed thicket, and we pass by the house of Gorgojil and the Nava de Andújar, a livestock pasture and a place of transit that allows us to observe the typical topographic relief of the Sierra Morena and the crops typical of the geological domain of the Guadalquivir, reaching the Rumblar reservoir, a sheet of water perfectly embedded in the rugged relief, and from here to Baños de la Encina, one of the four municipalities that make up the Sierra de Andújar Natural Park, declared a historic-artistic site and whose Burgalimar Castle flies the flag of the Council of Europe, awarded on the occasion of the millennium of its foundation.
