The Sierra Norte of Seville, a hill perched atop the Guadalquivir, expresses a mosaic of landscapes carved by the common agreement of nature and its people. Hidden among pastures, water flows that contain unknown treasures, while the white strokes, of ordered streets and aromas of aniseed, are protected by its supports.
The harmony of its landscape, a succession of gentle slate hills, is broken by the presence of other stones that make these mountains one of the most diverse scenes of Andalusia, reason for its inclusion in the European Geoparks Network.
Thus, we see a wide range of rocks, from granite stones and boulders of the batholith of El Pedroso, to a great many shapes of limestone origin: polje of Los Llanos de San Sebastian (Cazalla de la Sierra), the stunning natural limestone monument of Cerro del Hierro or the peaks of Constantina (San Nicolás del Puerto) and los Coscojales (Alanís). Other geographic formations of major importance are the natural monument of Cascadas del Huéznar, the Cambrian Medusas of Piedra Escrita (Cazalla de la Sierra) or the fossil trunks of the permian basin of the Viar River.
