Circular route from Jimena de la Frontera through the cork forest

Beautiful hike into the heart of the Cork Forest Nature Park 

Our route takes us from the village down to the river Hozcarganta. The landscape around the riverbanks is very unique and beautiful. From the highest point of the walk you can see far across to the Atlantic coast. Before we reach the village again, two rivers invite a refreshing swim in their natural stony pools.

Back in the village we visit the old Moorish castle, perched high above the town. Jimena is called "de la Frontera", meaning "the border", like many villages that were located on the border between the Moorish and the Christian Empire.
