Sierra de Aracena

The Sierra de Aracena is the first mountain barrier that the Atlantic wind finds when it penetrates the southwest to the Iberian Peninsula. That’s why there are frequent rains and mists, as well as fountains and springs, which has led to the lushness of Mediterranean forest.

The Natural Park of Aracena and Picos de Aroche integrates 10 villages declared of cultural interest, as well as two important natural sites as the Cave of Wonders in the town of Aracena and La Peña de Arias Montano in Alajar.

But are 28 villages which are within the park. Villages which has Roman sites, baroque churches, Islamic mosques, medieval castles and hermitages.

In this Sierra is the largest meadow of cork, oaks, and quejigos all across Europe. In addition, it also has an important chestnut plantation created by humans in the Middle Ages, making it a place with a symphony of greens of all shades.

There are numerous trails that we can do if we like nature walks. Chestnut trees, oaks and Pinares, among other species, will accompany our way. Also, if you are lucky enough to visit it in autumn, Andalusia is the European region with the greatest diversity of mushrooms and truffles, with more than 3,800 species.

A territory that has maintained a traditional lifestyle and communing with nature, with a spectacular cuisine, including the Iberian pig, who we will find enjoying the fruits of this great meadow of oaks.
