IN THE HEART OF NATURE

The Parador is located In the heart of the Cazorla Nature Reserve, in the spot known as Sacejo. Its height offers it unsurpassable panoramic views of the surroundings, in which hillsides covered with pine trees native to these mountains abound. The atmosphere of tranquility and beauty of enclaves like the Cañada de las Fuentes, or the 'Salto de Linarejos', makes it a meeting point for lovers of nature.

 

The building revives the tradition of the typical Andalusian country house, which is a distinguishing feature of the exterior. Its swimming pool, with impressive views of the Nature Reserve, and the interior, with a pleasant living room with chimney, is characterized by the brightness offered by its large windows. Game in season and Andalusian dishes such as 'gachamiga' (flour, breadcrumbs and bacon), 'pisto' (tomato-based ratatouille) and 'pipirrana' (tomato and cucumber salad) make up the gastronomic display of the restaurant.

What to eat...

The meat of different hunted animals depending on the season, and some Andalusian dishes ('gachamiga, pisto, pipirrana') are the gastronomical offer of this Parador. While you eat, you enjoy the wonderful scenery of this National Park.
