Cazorla - Town, Natural Park and Where to Stay

Many people get confused as to where exactly is Cazorla. The main reason  I think is when people say Cazorla they mean the Natural Park or Parque Natural de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas but there is also Cazorla town. In the north-east of Jaen province the natural park is the largest in Spain. Rugged, beautiful, varied and green.

The reason for my last jaunt there was to see some autumn colours. Where I live the trees are all evergreen; olives and holm oaks, so pining for some colour we (hubby and I) headed to Cazorla on the recent Bank Holiday taking advantage of the glorious autumn weather we had been having.




Much to my surprise there was very little colour except green! Even so our 24 hours there with stunning scenery, lots of castle steps and great food was thoroughly enjoyable added to that the lovely little boutique guest house that we stayed in was so nice we almost didn't go off exploring but had a leisurely breakfast, with the friendly owners and their Basssett Hounds, and a better standard of breakfast than some hotels we've been to. Have you seen my Hotel Breakfasts are Very Important post?
