Exploring by car can enhance the experience of any country, and driving through the beautiful terrain of Andalucia will encourage you to break from your itinerary to explore wherever you pass. This part of Spain is steeped in history and has artefacts, golden cathedrals and views aplenty. Follow the below routes for a taste of the real Andalucia.
Drive north from the Guadalquivir River to the reservoir of El Tranco for kayaking and onwards for views of the Sierras of Cazorla from the peak of Yelmo. Find the park’s beautiful village Segura de la Sierra and stop to camp on the way at the Camping Rural El Robledo if you have time. Consider continuing your journey south to take in the area’s beautiful Roman ruins.
A drive out of the way in a town called Sierra Norte is a series of waterfalls and pools that are idyllic to swim in, but be aware of the currents. The biggest waterfall is at the top for the daring traveller. To get there, drive over to the village of San Nicolas and follow the signs to Area Recreativa El Martinete.
