IN THE DESERT OF GORAFE
Located in a privileged location with panoramic views
Situated a few kilometres from Gorafe at the end of the high plateau, it is strategically located, remote from civilisation, which enables us to be one with the environment.
At 1000 metres above sea level and raised approximately 4 metres above the ground, we have a clear and unobstructed view of the entire Geopark, Guadix, Baza, the Sierra Nevada, Cazorla and the Sierra Mágina. Offering a 360º view of the desert.
What’s more, it is an ideal jumping-off point for exploring trails by 4WD vehicle, biking and hiking.
Points of interest

The Gorafe Dolmens
The Gorafe Valley has more than 250 dolmens along three signposted routes and can easily be accessed to see them up close. (We recommend a visit to the interpretive centre before setting off on any of these routes).
Toril irrigation channel
A tour around this thousand-year old natural irrigation channel created by thermal springs with a high calcium carbonate content, which emerges from the ground opposite the spa and ends in a waterfall.(1h duration).
The more recent rivers such as the River Gor, on whose banks we find the town of Gorafe in the centre of the Geopark, have shaped this landscape incessantly in the course of the last 500,000 years, creating a unique territory that is characterised by its aridity, with striking gullies. The exposed rocks in the fluvial valleys of the Quaternary Geopark tell the story of its geological evolution, of ancient Mesozoic seas and of life during the Quaternary.
