Climbing in Cerro del Hierro


Cerro del Hierro is where you can take your first steps in climbing and you will feel like you are taking part in a science fiction film. This natural monument is located in the province of Seville and is part of the Sierra Norte de Sevilla Nature reserve.

The name Cerro del Hierro, which means "Iron Hill" in Spanish, refers to a long history of mining in this area that dates back to Roman times, and more recently to an English company that came to operate here. The mining of iron ore, together with the erosion caused by rain, have revealed a spectacular karstic landscape that today has become ideal for climbing.

Why is this an ideal place to climb? The unusual structure of this natural monument, together with the characteristic shapes formed by the limestone and the ease with which climbers are able to grip convert this area into a real point of reference for this sport. Purely on its own merits, Cerro del Hierro is now the most important climbing school in the province of Seville
