There is a great variety of herbal plants like lavender, rosemary, thyme, cist rose and myrtle. Especially the fauna attracts many nature lovers: raptors like the Spanish imperial eagle, red and fallow deer, wild boar, otter, wolf, ibex and Iberian lynx belong to the permanent residents of the park.
The mountains are easily accessible for both hikers and mountain bikers.

Do you want to see a video of Villa Matilde and its surroundings?

For lovers of culture and architecture, the area offers many interesting sights. Andújar has a great baroque architecture of churches and medieval monuments. Also bigger cities in southern Spain, such as Seville, Córdoba, Granada and Málaga are easily accessible from Villa Matilde.

For people who love old stories, there is much to discover in and around Villa Matilde. In the mountains of Andújar appeared in 1227 La Virgen de la Cabeza, the Virgin of La Cabeza, to a shepherd from Granada. Still these days, the last weekend of April, Spain's oldest pilgrimage is organized to celebrate this appearance. The cult of the virgin was highlighted in the work of writers such as Miguel de Cervantes, Lope de Vega and Calderón de la Barca.

Villa Matilde itself has played a role in the history of the Spanish Civil War. The holes in the tiles of the walls are silent witnesses of it.
