Aracena, Huelva –
In the north of Huelva lies its mountain range, where Aracena is the capital. This municipality, one hour and fifteen minutes from Seville by car, is a white town surrounded by mountains and oak forests.
Our recommendation is to stroll through its alleys and get lost, without a doubt you will reach its most special corners: the Plaza Alta where you will find the Church of the Asunción, the Plaza de San Pedro with its Mudejar hermitage, the set of outdoor sculptures that form the Museum of Contemporary Art of Andalusia or the Interpretation Center of Aracena.
We also encourage you to conquer its castle, a Muslim fortification from the 8th century from which you will have a wonderful view of the city. You could also visit its two main attractions: the Ham Museum and the Grotto of Wonders.
In the surrounding area of Aracena, they breed a very unique pig: the Iberian pig. From it, they obtain the area’s star product: Iberian ham. You cannot leave without trying it, and visiting the Ham Museum.
And finally, The Grotto os Wonders: a magical place. It is a cave over a kilometer deep that has seven lakes, and hundreds of typical formations such as columns, stalactites and stalagmites.
To get to Aracena, you can take a bus from the Plaza de Armas bus station, although the frequency is very low. We recommend going by car: this way you can visit other towns in the area.
