Wild Orchids in Western Andalusia

Andalusia is known for its great botanical diversity due to its location halfway between Europe and Africa, and the variety of climates, substrates and altitudes.

One of the groups receiving the most attention are wild orchids, due to their bright colors and their incredible reproductive strategies.

In Andalusia we can find about 65 species of wild orchids, which is approximately 70% of all orchids present in the Iberian Peninsula.

Depending on the time of the year and your target species, these are the areas where we usually go out to look for orchids:

  • Sierra de Grazalema: with around 40 different species, it is one of the most diverse areas in Andalusia.
  • Sierra Norte de Sevilla
  • Doñana
  • Montellano

The best way to observe and photograph orchids is walking, although many species can be found on the roadside. For certain species, however, walking is required.
