Barranco del Jurado

The Jurado Ravine is formed by basaltic materials that, after erosion, give rise to almost vertical walls that can reach up to 620 meters in altitude. It is characteristic of the place, the breakwater with holes on the left side, a product of erosive landslides, under which passed an ancient royal road that gave its name to the place name “Jorado" or "Jurado". The steep escarpments of the ravine are home to populations of birds such as the red-billed chough (Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax), Bolle's pigeon (Columba bollii), laurel pigeons (Columba junoniae), common kestrel (Falco tinnunculus), along with interesting protected species such as the mastic tree (Pistacia atlantica), among others.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Do not walk in areas where it is not allowed and respect the signposting along trails. Leaving the set paths causes damage to the environment and could also be dangerous for you and anyone with you.
- Do not light fires outside the permitted areas and be especially careful during the summer months.
- Try not to alter the peace of the environment with excessive noise (loud music, yelling, etc.).
