Algodonales is situated on the northern hillsides of the Sierra de la Lijar which is a famed paragliding flying site with both English and Spanish Nationals taking place there. Dating from around the sixteenth century, the village is surrounded by orchards and olive groves which make a picturesque contrast to the brilliant white houses. The centre of the village is dominated by the magnificent church of Iglesia de Santa Ana and a lovely central square surrounded by orange trees.

Nearby is the Grazalema National Park which is an important mountain wilderness, unique to Andalucia. The limestone mass of the Sierra was formed in the Jurassic and Triassic periods and the close proximity to the sea has produced a micro-climate where many botanical species dating from before the Ice Age have survived, including the rare Pinsapo the Spanish Fir. The Sierra also supports a feast of birdlife, such as Bonelli, Booted and Golden Eagles, Griffon and Egyptian vultures and various owls, woodpeckers and swifts. For non-paragliding guests it's well worth contacting Buitre Tours which are hosted by Frank Hair, a fully licensed and professional bird guide. There are also wolves, lynx and many other small mammals making their home in the surroundings.

Although it is a national park, various outdoor activities are welcomed such as walking, horse-riding, mountain biking, climbing, canoeing, caving, swimming and of course, paragliding and hang-gliding.

Algodonales is also ideally situated for visiting the surrounding great cities and sights of interests such as Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba, Cadiz, Jerez de la Frontera and the Costa de la Luz and the Costa del Sol.

For the independent travellers, we also provide Accommodation only packages.

Algodonales is the perfect destination for paragliding pilots and non flyers alike: plenty of great flying and plenty to do and see for non fliers too!
