Andalucia’s Aracena Sierra is a land of glorious woodland and far-reaching views, of soft, rounded hills and crystal-clear streams. Tucked away close to the Portuguese border, it is dotted with small, authentic villages whose inhabitants live in harmony with the land and, as you walk along inviting paths through gentle cork oak and chestnut clad hills, you get a glimpse of Spanish rural life – men leading donkeys laden with vegetables and shiny chestnuts, and farmers tending the black-footed, free-range pigs which feast at leisure on acorns and provide the region’s prized air-cured ham.
The rolling hills of Aracena lend themselves to leisurely discovery on foot and, to introduce you to this captivating area, we include a guided walk with a knowledgeable local expert who will bring the region to life, before you strike off on your own, using our detailed notes. We offer a wide range of walks, some from the doorstep and others from nearby villages which make use of your hire car.
