4. Spanish terrain
We were in Seville officially.
Already on the plane from Madrid to Seville I was
looking down at promising landscape. Typical red soil
and sparsely overgrown land with numerous trails. The
ones along crests with open views were looking
especially attractive. The Spanish terrain really made
in impression on me and I definitely wanted to try it.
Sierra Norte national park is not that big. It
measures 70x35 km and 100 to 1000 m in height. According
to the park brochure, there are also some wild animals,
from wild cat and lynx to red deer. Unfortunately we saw
only wild rabbits during our one day visit. The park is
also made as recreation area. There are picnic areas,
which are very popular here, and numerous trails for
hiking and mountain biking. Climbing and some water
sports are also possible. There are some bigger villages
and localities in the park as well and a deserted iron
mine. The park reception is in the village of Constantina,
where our staring point was as well.
