Where you’ll be

El Alcornocal, Fuenteobejuna Córdoba, Andalucía, Spain

The environment
The geographical factor that gives it unity and identifies the region, is the presence of the Guadiato River that originates in the Fuente-Obejuna district and in its route is rested in reservoirs such as those of San Pedro, Sierra Boyera and Guadiato. Guadiato and Zujar, which form the border with Badajoz province, gather important wetlands in their vicinity, where numerous birds find shelter during the winter period.

The streams and reservoirs are excellent places for fishing and water sports such as rowing, canoeing and sailing, which leads sports federations to organize competitions of this type of activities in these places.

The rural landscape of Alto Guadiato is dominated by the Dehesa, a formation that arises from man's interaction with his environment. The predominant trees are oaks, cork oaks and olive groves, under which excellent grasslands grow, resulting in a suitable medium for extensive and quality hunting livestock production.

Also important is the mycological richness of the area and other wild species highly appreciated in traditional cuisine such as asparagus.


Wildlife

The richness of the ecosystem guarantees enjoyment and contact with nature. In the mountain and pasture areas we find species such as deer, gamos, wild boar, red partridge, rabbits and hares, and predators such as eagles and vultures.

The entire Guadiato Valley is internationally renowned for its hunting offer, and especially the southern part of Fuente Obejuna. In the region there is a wide range of hunting activities, both major and minor, as well as all the logistical, service and organizational infrastructure for the practice of this sport.

Alongside game species, there is an abundance of protected species in these ecosystems, such as badger, melon, and fox.

On the other hand, the Guadiato Valley is a real refuge for birds. Calendrias, common cogujadas, trigueros, sisones, aguiluchos, caravans, and the majesty of the avutarda and crane can be contemplated. In the upper Guadiato reservoir trio are concentrated year-round royal ducks and water cocks, and in winter, fleeing the cold of northern Europe, cormorants, whistle ducks, herons, ducks spoons and other species. In summer the stork and the bird nest here. There are also unusual or endangered waterbirds in the area, such as the scratch, the common anthrax, cranes or the snout.

Likewise, the Guadiato streams, as well as their reservoirs, are rich in fish such as common and royal carp, boga, barbo, pike or black bass.


The landscape

El Valle del Alto Guadiato combines the beautiful landscape of the pasture, with the attractiveness of rivers, streams and reservoirs and the uniqueness of "the villages” ,small rural towns, eleven scattered in the municipality of Fuente Objeuna, one of which is the Alcornocal, and three in that of Belmez. “The villages” are an oasis of tranquility, tradition and tranquility, where the contact and mutual transformation of man and nature is maintained.

Another peculiarity of the region, mainly in Peñarroya and Belmez, is the presence of old opencast mines, some still in operation, and remains of industrial architecture of the late 19th century, of the best Eiffelian tradition.

The buildings that make up the mining complex - chimneys, warehouses and metal structures for mineral extraction - show, even in ruins, an imposing profile. From the French company that exploited them there are some residential buildings of undoubted value that contrast with the tradition of the area but that have been integrated into the landscape.





Customs The extensive cuisine of the area is based on Iberian pork and lamb, with which delicacies such as belmezana lamb, fried suckling pig, barley loin or Iberian prey are made, which are complemented by a wide variety of homemade desserts.

In most of the municipalities of the region the tradition of "slaughter” is maintained to produce products derived from pork such as sausages, black puddings, ham or loin cane in the purest artisanal style.

Regarding craftsmanship, the tradition of manual processing of embroidery, ceramics, pottery or leather is still preserved in this region.




Historical and artistic heritage

The history of the area, always closely linked to its livestock, hunting and mining wealth, dates back to prehistoric times.

The Historical Museum of Belmez and the Mining Territory, allows us to deepen the important legacy of the archaeological areas of la Gata, Sierra Boyera and Casas Baratas., in the production of copper and silver metals during the final Bronze or Tartésico and in the Roman period, where the mines of la Gata, La Gririlla, La Campana and Los Cabriles were very important.

As an architectural heritage, the imposing Belmez castle remains from the Roman and Arab past, and in Fuente Obejuna there are important churches, stately houses and hermitages. Among all this, the Cardona house stands out for its originality, an example of modernist civil architecture in the heart of the Cordoba mountains.

De Fuente-Obejuna, is widely known the episode that happened in the fifteenth century, immortalized by Lope de Vega in his work of the same name and in which he recounts the rebellion of an entire people against the tyranny personified in his Commander. Precisely, the singular dispersion of the population in the villages is blamed in some versions, often novel, on the search by the people for a safe haven in their flight from oppression.
