The Sierra de Gata is the last massif of the Sistema Central located within Spain. The lythic materials of these mountains of medium height - the highest peak is Peña Canchera at an altitude of 1,592 metres - are predominantly slate and small granite outcrops.

Large woods of Pyrenean oak - the most extensive forests of this species in the Iberian peninsula - cover a large area of the slopes of the Sierra de Gata and also give their name to this protected space: el Rebollar.
