Eastern Andalucía

Andalucía is a region of contrast. There are wild mountains and extensive marshes, dry semi-desert and barren limestone karst, but also leafy woodlands laced with murmuring streams. The biodiversity is the highest of any of the Spanish regions. Andalucía is the stronghold of the endangered Iberian Lynx. Herds of wild Ibex roam the mountains and large numbers of vultures and eagles nest on remote, precipitous cliffs. The Mediterranean Chameleon shelters in the wind-beaten dune scrub, while huge numbers of waterbirds feed in the marshes.
Each corner of this, the largest of Spain’s autonomous regions, is different, but all share one characteristic – they all have jewels of natural areas that for one reason or another, stand out among all others.
Andalucía is too large and diverse to do justice in a single guidebook. This book covers eastern Andalucía –Córdoba, Jaen, Granada and Almería. It describes routes and sites in  regions including the Sierra Nevada, Sierra de Cazorla, Sierra de Andújar, Cabo de Gata and Desierto de Tabernas.
