Tropical Forest

Los Alcornocales Natural Park, Andalucia, Spain

One of Europe’s last remaining tropical forests is the Los Alcornocales Natural Park at the southernmost end of Spain.

The area is dominated by a mountain range in large part covered by cork oaks (alcornoques). It stretches over more than 60km, from Tarifa to the Sierra de Grazalema. Its highest point, the Pico de Aljibe, rises up to almost 1,100m above sea level. On a clear day, the view from the summit reaches over the entire province of Cádiz.
