The sun is getting lower on the horizon and the light is softer. The colours are accentuated and express greater contrasts and importance.
The natural areas of Andalusia are ideal places to enjoy the autumnal details, like the fauna, flora, fruits, mushrooms, etc.
The country in autumn is full of chestnuts, wild mushrooms, colour and lots of magic; Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy nature in its best season.
Although we have visited natural areas in other seasons, during the autumn we see new colours and we can see dramatic changes in the landscape. This is why we suggest the following:
Every year thousands of birds fly over the Strait of Gibraltar on their way to Africa for winter. A unique spectacle you shouldn't miss
During these migratory routes, a great variety of birds find rest in our strategically located marshes.
You can get further information on bird migration at the Strait Information Point
Collecting wild mushrooms
After a rainy autumn day, wild mushrooms are the stars of the fields.
Grab your wicker basket and come pick them. You'll have a great day and hopefully you'll take home a share of this mountain treasure.
And then it's time to enjoy them at home- the possibilities are endless.

Espiel (Cordoba): Saffron Milk Cap
Jimena de la Frontera (Cadiz): Chanterelle
Serranía de Ronda (Malaga): Caesar's Mushroom
El Andévalo (Huelva): White Truffle

Deer Mating Season
To enjoy this, various groups organise trips into the forest to attend the rut ritual and battles between the male deer who fight for the females in order to perpetuate the species with the fawns born in the spring.
The chestnut forest is one of the most characteristic landscapes of the Sierra de Aracena and the Sierra de las Nieves, which becomes beautiful in Autumn thanks to the colour of the leaves contrasted with their spike-covered fruits resembling a hedgehog.
