Learn More Events


Finca de la Jara, is a Nature Resource & Retreat Centre set in 10 acres of unspoilt Andalucian countryside bordering Los Alcornocales, Parque Natural. A protected area containing an abundance of wildlife and some of Spain’s most dramatic landscapes.

The centre is adjacent to the Rio Almodovar and surrounded by wild, untamed, nature. The local area was the site of many established Roman settlements but contains many much older hidden secrets, including ancient sacred sites and the remains of long forgotten, civilisations.

Finca de la Jara offers access to a multitude of self development opportunities from yoga, meditation and qigong to somatic bodywork and shamanic vision quest programmes.

In addition, the outstanding local environment provides excellent opportunities for hiking, bird watching, rock climbing, horse riding, mountain biking and kitesurfing activities.

Or most rewarding, experience a combination of both.
