Aracena Travel Guide
Aracena Parks & Gardens
Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Nature Reserve The reserve was created in 1989 to preserve the countryside and way of life of the villages in this special area. Thickly wooded hills give way to groves of olives and orchards of apples, plums and other fruit. There are rocky escarpments and mule tracks that wind around the countryside with its whitewashed villages hanging from the side of a hill or nestling in pretty valleys. The area offers excellent walking or riding conditions.
Coto de Donana This is a big nature reserve with numerous salt flats, sand dunes and marshes. It is extremely important to migratory birds and endangered mammals like the Iberian lynx.
