- This ancient aleppo pine forest can be found just a couple of kilometres away from Jimena.
- Its peculiar looks is due to its natural evolution -without man work- and the long lives of its trees, some of them between 100 and 300 years old.
- Twisted trunks and rounded tops are in high contrast with the typical shapes of young pinewoods.
- Declared Natural Monument in 2001, from its location we can enjoy lovely views of Sierra Magina Natural Park.
