Algodonales is situated on
the northern hillsides of the Sierra de la Lijar which is a
famed paragliding flying site with both English and Spanish
Nationals taking place there. Dating from around the sixteenth
century, the village is surrounded by orchards and olive
groves which make a picturesque contrast to the brilliant
white houses. The centre of the village is dominated by the
magnificent church Santa Ana and a lovely
square surrounded by orange trees, a perfect scene to relax in
and enjoy a refreshing drink after a day's paragliding.
Centrally located for easy access
from Malaga, Sevilla and Jerez de la Frontera airports,
Algodonales boasts beautiful National
Parks nearby ideal for bird watching, enjoying activities such
as walking, horse-riding, mountain biking, climbing, canoeing,
etc, and for nature lovers in general. Non flyers would have
plenty to do, not to mention visiting the nearby great cities.
We are located close to many fine flying sites, the main ones
being Lijar and Ronda. The largest, Lijar is roughly
1000 metres and it takes around 15 mins to fly top to bottom!
It is a great thermal site and has good cross country
potential. The take offs, one on the southern face and one on
the westerly, are large, smooth and gentle having been enlarged to cope with the 2001 World Air Games
which were held there. The landing fields are huge too!

you will enjoy your paragliding holiday or your paragliding
course in Andalusia. Come and
fly Spain with Andalucian Experience - we look forward to
welcoming you out here!
