Inn to Inn Walking in the Sierra de Aracena

Follow ancient mule tracks and cobbled paths through the rolling hills, woodlands, lush pastures, and orchards of the Sierra de Aracena National Park, with overnight stays in the sleepy and undiscovered whitewashed villages of Los Marines, Cortelazor and Alajar. 

Your tour begins with two nights in the lovely Finca Buenvino, in its beautiful hilltop location amongst the chestnut and cork forest, offering fine regional cuisine. Walk from Aracena to the nearby village of Corteconcepcion on quiet, easy trails, and past meadows where the Black Iberian pigs graze. Continue to the village of Fuenteheridos with its lively tapas bars lining the square, and then on to the sleepy village of Cortelazor for two nights, where time truly seems to stand still.

Your final stopover is one of the prettiest villages in the sierra, Alajar, with its 16th century church and small paseo (square). Enjoy a walk to Linares de Sierra, with its Michelin rated restaurant, and explore the nearby village of Almonaster la Real with its magnificent 10th century hilltop mosque.
