Mirador del Tapadero is a natural viewpoint at an elevation of 1.124m (3,687ft) above the sea level, located in Jaén, a province of southern Spain, in the eastern part of the autonomous community of Andalusia.
Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs. The road to the summit is paved but very narrow with 20 hairpin turns. It’s known as Transversal de las Villas. Located within the Sierras de Cazorla, Segura y Las Villas National Park, the summit offers an impressive view of the Sierra de las Villas.
Starting from the A-6202 road, the ascent is 9.7km long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 572 meters and the average gradient is 5.89%. This viewing point is situated on an outcrop of a rock wall, which has sheer sides that rise up dizzyingly from a chasm some 200 metres below.
