In 1929, the Sierra de Cabra was declared as a natural site of interest. Its highest point is known as El Picacho and is 1217 metres high.El Picacho is believed to be the “Balcony of Andalusia” and boasts spectacular views of the Subbética’s most important summits and also the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
Griffon vultures and black wheatears in flight can be spotted from El Picacho. Mastic, retama and rosemary are the most common vegetation species.
This Sierra offers interesting landforms such as the Lapiaz de los Lanchares.
