At the foot of Javalon are the Baños de Zújar (baths of Zújar). They maintain a temperature over 30°C all year round, and are heated by a geo-thermal source underground.
The mountain also has a church situated on top as well as television and other communication towers. Paragliders frequently launch from the top of here as the mountain is surrounded by relatively flat land.
Popular legend claims that this hill is an extinct volcano because of its dome-shape and the geo-thermal sources at its base. It is however an isolated limestone outcrop, made up of dolomite, similar to the composition of the Sierra de Baza mountains further away.
