ROUTE OF THE WATER

The Water Route is 68 kilometres long (from Mount Carambolo, in Camas, to the Serrano Lakes, a natural spot located on the northern border of Guillena). Within this route, our municipality has 14 kilometres delimited as a restricted section, only accessible on foot, by bicycle or on horseback.

This is one of the areas of greatest ecological interest in the municipality, with unique native flora and fauna, which faithfully follows the course of the Huelva and Cala rivers, where we can find up to sixteen rest areas with shelters, viewpoints, huts, barbecue areas and restaurants.

For a unique experience, the Water Route offers a wide range of outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking, mountaineering, cycle touring, horse riding, paragliding, etc.

ROUTE OF THE RAILWAY TRACK

In the vicinity of the end of the restricted section, we find the Sendero Vía del Tren trail, a circular route of approximately 9.5 kilometres, where nature and silence are in perfect symbiosis.

The old railway line of the Cala-San Juan de Aznalfarache mining railway leaves us with a route full of contrasts, such as a railway tunnel, or the remains of the Gergal station.

NATURAL HERITAGE

Flora

We will mainly find holm oaks and gall oaks, although they are not the only species along the route, as there are also pines, poplars, poplars, cork oaks, wild olive trees, chestnut trees, strawberry trees, carob trees, carob trees, oak trees…

In addition, there are places where the scrub replaces the tree species, with the presence of clover or wild grasses. All this forms an enormous natural setting where the colours and aromas are in perfect symbiosis.

Aquatic species

The animal kingdom of the Water Route is made up of a large number of fish species: the sea lamprey, the common and rainbow trout, the pike, the river bogue, the barbel, the royal carp, the American perch or the eel. Along with them, we find amphibians such as the salamander, the marbled and Iberian newt, the common frog or the leper and European pond turtle.

Birds

The sky of the Water Route also has an enormous diversity of species: the red kite, the black kite, the sparrowhawk, the common buzzard, the lesser kestrel, the honey buzzard, the Bonelli’s eagle, the booted eagle, the short-toed eagle, the common kestrel, the barn owl, the wood pigeon, the partridge, the turtle dove, the heron, the stork, the grey duck and a large number of insectivorous birds.

Mammals

On the ground we find a wide variety of inhabitants such as foxes, badgers, genets, wildcats, wild boar, deer and a huge range of rodents.
