Andalucía is one of the warmest regions of whole Europe. It has a temperate, Mediterranean climate with dry and hot summers and mild winters with irregular rainfall. This southern region is one of the most beautiful parts of Spain, where you can enjoy spectacular mountain areas, comprising of terraced hillsides and well-watered fertile valleys. The landscape of rural Andalusia is breathtaking. One of the best ways to appreciate the diversity and beauty of Andalucia is by walking. There are two national parks in Andalucia: Doñana National Park and Sierra Nevada. It also has many Natural Parks. All of the parks have unrestricted access, but a few may have areas where you need to obtain special permission before visiting them due to the risk of forest fire or disturbing nesting birds, as is the case with the reserve zone in the Sierra de Grazalema. Footpaths (senderos) are frequently follow former drovers' routes that are common throughout Andalucia, are becoming increasingly well marked with information boards marking the beginning of a route and signposts along the way.
