Nature in its purest form

Our environment is el Parque Natural de la Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, a true paradise for lovers of nature and gastronomy. Dreamy trails, paths shaded by huge cork oaks and chestnut trees, magnificent views and a wide variety of mushrooms and chestnuts within easy reach.

Gastronomy

Our Sierra is the cradle of the famous Jabugo Ham (the town is 8 km away) and all the products derived from the Iberian pig. As a consequence, endless restaurants have been created offering both traditional and original dishes in all the towns of the Sierra. 

Art and culture

The Peña de Arias Montano, the Cave of Wonders in Aracena, the Hermitage of Almonaster la Real, el castillo de Cortegana are some of the well-preserved monumental attractions that can be visited in the region, but it is worth noting that each town offers a delicious walk through its cobbled streets, getting lost in them is the best way to find the essence of the culture of Sierra Morena

Scenery

It is no coincidence that many painters have come to these lands and have not been able to resist the temptation of trying to capture them on canvas. There are innumerable hills and ports that offer an exceptional viewpoint to the four winds.

Popular Festivals

They say that in the Sierra we are always partying, but it is not true, in reality the celebrations last from January with the living nativity scenes and parades, until December with the mycological, ham and craft fairs of Aracena. Between both, all the towns celebrate pilgrimages and popular festivals, among which the Virgen de los Ángeles in Alajar or the medieval days of Cortegana stand out.

Sport

Hiking and mountain biking are possibly the sports that make the Sierra de Aracena famous, there are endless trails to enjoy at your own pace. 

But competitive sport has important tests at the national level such as Huelva Extreme (BTT Ultramarathon) or Santa Ana la Real Nordic Walking and professional Triathlon training camps are held in Aracena._cc781905-5cde-3194- bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

astronomical observation

Finca La Fronda is located within the Starlight Reserve of Sierra Morena due to the quality of its night skies, and it is the ideal place to observe the stars and astronomical phenomena. We have guides and specialized material for a great family activity.
