Cazorla is part of the province of Jaén, and stands at 835 meters above sea level; this town is considered the gateway to the Natural Park of the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y las Villas, a huge protected area made of mountains, forests, valleys, gorges and rivers. The Guadalquivir River begins in these mountains and flows for approx. 650 Km ending into the Atlantic Ocean in the province of Cadiz.

Cazorla’s history dates back over two thousand years. In Roman times it was called Caracena, then as the rest of Andalusia was conquered by the Moors, who built several towers due to its strategic location. It was also home to a bishopric after the Catholic Reconquest, and today is a beautiful mountain village, which lives on tourism and on the production of olive oil.
