Los Acebuches Viewpoint – Grazalema
Los Acebuches Viewpoint is located in the municipality of Grazalema, on the road that goes from Zahara de la Sierra to Grazalema by the Puerto de las Palomas at km 13,5.
The main feature of this panoramic view is the Green Gorge, a spectacular canyon that was dug out the Bocaleanes Stream. A large number of birds nest in its walls, among them the Griffon vulture. You can follow a trail through this zone, but first you must have authorization from the El Bosque Visitors Center (telephone 956709733). To the left we can see the La Cornicabra Mountain and, further off, the highest peaks of the Margarita Range. To the right the Lijar Range which has been proposed as a Site of Community Importance, and has geological and biodiversity characteristics very similar to those in this park. The vegetation seen here is that of a Mediterranean forest with species such as the Holm oak (the most abundant), the European carob tree, wild olive trees, hawthorn, and laurel among others.
