Sierra Norte de Sevilla Parque Natural UNESCO Global Geopark

The sparsely populated Sierra Norte de Sevilla Natural Park is one of Andalucia’s largest protected areas, covering 177,484 hectares. It is situated 90 kilometres north of the city of Seville, adjacent to the Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche Natural Park in the huge Sierra Morena mountain range.

Few tourists make it into this park due to its remoteness but the ones that do take the trouble are wowed with the small white villages, typically Moorish, with steep winding streets leading to a castle or church. The gently rolling, wooded, slate hills with occasional outcrops of granite and limestone, provides one of the most diverse landscapes in Andalucia and makes the Sierra Norte de Sevilla Natural Park a worthy member of the European Geoparks network.
