The Despeñaperros pass is one of the main routes into Andalucia through the Sierra Morena mountains. The river gorge, with its high, sheer, quartzite walls, is a dramatic gateway into Andalucia from the north and the only natural break in the 500 kilometre long Sierra Morena mountains. It is a feature preserved for future generations by having the status of Parque Natural.
