Natural Heritage

#Turismo

The vast and rich natural spots of Osuna, along with the huge cultural heritage, are part of the personality and the appeal of the locality, situated right in the Sevillian countryside. Since the triangular hill where the town is located, it is possible to contemplate the olive groves and the highlands, with soft temperatures the whole year. But, if we had to highlight something peculiar of this town, with its majestic past, that would be its protected spaces and properties, which cover a great part of its territory.

The municipality of Osuna is a large territory, as it has 387.8 km of drovers’ roads prepared for public use. This way, we can offer a wide range of paths which, at the same time, allow the recovery of historic places for the citizens of the municipality.

In this way, there are eleven paths designed:
