The GR 48 route

 
The long distance walking route through the Sierra Morena GR-48

The route of the Sierra Morena trail - GR 48 starts in the village of Barrancos in Portugal and runs along public roads through the province of Huelva, Seville, Córdoba and Jaén along 590 km in 28 stages and an alternative route.

It is designed to take you through six nature parks in Andalucía, coinciding with green footpaths that inter-communicate protected areas, historic and traditional pathways. Landscapes where Mediterranean forest predominates in its purest form along side meadows, declared by the UNESCO to be a Reserve of the Biosphere, with some olive groves scattered about. Territory that is still the habitat for species as scarce as the Iberian lynx, the wolf, black vulture and the Spanish imperial eagle. Villages with history where man has known how to preserve natural values by integrating them into his own way of life.
