I had heard several times that Cazorla was beautiful and full of nature but I had not really pencilled it in for a visit. I knew I would go one day but we were always saying “let’s wait for the spring so it’s not too cold or too hot.”
As a push is sometimes needed, when my boyfriend’s friends invited me into a Whatsapp group to organise a weekend stay in Cazorla for April, I did a bit of Googling and was definitely up for the idea! The pictures looked lovely- lots and lots of greenery which can be a bit sparse in the drier regions of Spain. Here in Córdoba, we had endured 6 straight weeks of torrential rain which was becoming sooo tedious (not to mention the shoes and hairstyles it was ruining daily) despite the fact we can acknowledge how much rain is needed here sometimes.
