Zumeta Canyon Road

A panoramic road through the splendid Zumeta Canyon

Cañón del Río Zumeta (Zumeta Canyon Road) is the name of a very scenic drive located on the boundary between the Spanish autonomous communities of Andalusia and Castilla–La Mancha. It’s one of the most scenic canyon roads of Spain.

Bordering the Cazorla Segura and las Villas Natural Park, the road through the canyon is totally paved but pretty narrow. It runs through Zumeta canyon, an imposing gorge created by the karst erosion of the waters of the Zumeta river, a tributary of Segura river. It’s called A-63.

The drive is 8.5km (5,28 miles) long, running south-north from El Morrión to Las Juntas. The road can be blocked by rockslides or trees when the weather is bad.

The road is in bad conditions, with gravel on it. In winters, the road can be closed due to snowfalls. It’s one of the most visited areas on Segura Valley on summers.
