Trail to Cerro del Águila

The Trail  to Cerro del Águila is an easy and beautiful path that starts from the bridge of Madroñalejo and takes us, passing by an old abandoned shepherd’s hut to the Cerro del Águila, from where we will have spectacular views of the Sierra, the Reservoir of the Agrio and the town of Aznalcóllar. Under the Cerro we will see the Forest Defense Center of Madroñalejo, where it was shot the documentary film “Life in Flames” (2015). Watch the trailer.
