Few other areas blend so much ecological and mystical interest as the strait through which the River Bembézar flows out of the sierra. Up high hangs the enigmatic Seminario de los Ángeles, ensconced amidst rugged hillsides of Mediterranean scrub, waterfalls, springs, travertine caves and overhangs, primitive terraces and the lingering echoes of ancient plainsong, as well as a rich community of flora and fauna like Black Stork, Bonelli’s Eagle, Griffon Vulture, Blue Rock Thrush, Pallid Swift, White-Rumped Swift and huge examples of Carob and European Nettle Trees. More information in the book Birding and Nature Trails in Sierra Morena Cordobesa.
