Shelter - Refugio Rambla Seca
In the southern half of the Natural Park of Cazorla, Segura and Las Villas (Jaén), near the eastern limit of it. It is located on the western slope of the Sierra de la Empanada (continuation or even part of the Sierra de Castril). It's near the edge of Arroyo del Infierno.
The refuge is next to a dirt track, being able to arrive by vehicle from the center of the Park (Guadalquivir River) starting from Vadillo Castril, or from Santiago de la Espada. Just 500 meters west of the shelter the track has a barrier or vehicle control, also called Rambla Seca. This control closes at certain times.
Domed building with porch, a large room that can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people (cramped no more than 10) and a small room not too profitable. With the renovation and adaptation plan of the GR 247 this refuge no longer has a chimney. Scarce furniture, but in good condition.
The source (or sources, since they are two) of Rabla Seca is walking along the track about 200 meters from the refuge to the East, coming across it on a meadow to the right (South) of the dirt road. Eye because the map of Alpina places it badly, to the West and not to the East of the refuge.
Ascents to Empanada or Banderillas, among other peaks. Multiple routes for hiking and mountain biking: Caña de Pinar Negro, Campos de Hernán Perea, Río Borosa, etc.
