Cehegín, the heart of the northwest Region of Murcia, has a wide range of natural landscapes. Thus, protecting the south, we discover the highest peaks of the municipality, Sierra de Lavia (1236 m), Sierra de Burete (1189 m), Los Ceperos (1189 m) and finally, the Sierra del Quípar (1017). To the north and east of the municipality are the more gentle mountainous elevations such as the Cabezos de la Fuente del Pintor (638 m) and Fuente Capel (617 m), Cerro de Cambrones (605 m), Cabezos de Juan González (603 m) and Cerro de los Lomos (514 m). To the west, Peña Rubia (805m) and the rivers Argos and Quípar frame the life of its inhabitants. In contrast, the Gilico area in the Quípar valley is at a lower altitude (330m).
Due to their diversity and their exceptional nature, different natural areas of Cehegín (together with the municipalities of Moratalla, Caravaca, Calasparra, Bullas, Cieza, Mula, Lorca and Abarán), have two Natura 2000 Network protection figures. The Sierras de Burete, Lavia and Cambrón and the Sierra del Molino, Quípar reservoir and Llanos del Cagitán are Special Protection Areas for Birds (SPA) and the River Quípar has been declared a Site of Community Interest (SCI).
