Alcaucin – Alcazar Path

At about 4.5 km from the centre of Alcaucín, almost in the heart of the “Sierra de Tejeda”, after following a well signposted track, you come across the area known as “Cortijo del Alcazar” . The track with its breathtaking views is named after the stream that rises in these mountains of the “Sierra de Tejeda”.

Before you reach the area of the “Cortijo del Alcázar”, you will see the “Mirador de Miguel Álvarez” with its imposing gorge. At the bottorn of the gorge, completely hidden by the vegetation, you hear the sound the river Alcázar rushing by.

The next stopping point is the recreational area of “El Rio” with its wide range of vegetation like the black poplar, elm tree, bramble, heather, oleander, etc.

As we ascend, the vegetation changes into Mediterranean brush: juniper, gorse, sage, thyme, lavender etc, dominated by the pines.

About the fauna, in these mountains you will find raptors like falcons (Falco Peregrinus) and several species of eagles. If you look carefully, you may possibly see some wild mountain goats, foxes or martens.
