Aracena is located in the Parque Natural Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche, declared a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco and is one of the largest nature reserves in Europe. Located along the ‘Ruta de Jamón Iberico’(The Iberian Ham Route), it was declared a Tourist Municipality of Andalucía in 2006. This iconic home is located in the historic artistic centre of the city.
The town is presided over by the ruins of a 12th century Moorish fortress which was destroyed by Napoleon’s army during the war of 1812 and a 15th century gothic-mudejar church built by the Knights of the Templar. The walk up to the castle is well rewarded with gorgeous sweeping views extending all the way to Portugal.
Aracena is situated one hour by car from Seville and three hours from Lisbon. It is about one hour away from the beaches of Huelva and less than two from Jerez de la Frontera, the city made famous by its Sherries and dancing Andalusian horses. In short, Aracena is well positioned to serve as a home base to explore the many attractions that Andalusia and the Southern Iberian peninsula have to offer.
The Sierras of Aracena and Peaks of Aroche are dotted with tiny white washed villages and towns, typical of Andalusia. Each town and village fiercely maintains its own traditions and because they tend to be staggered throughout the year, it is easy to enjoy virtually all of them.
Many of the fiestas have religious significance but can be enjoyed by all as truly cultural celebrations of traditional dance and song.
Whether it be a Romeria (religious pilgrimage), a bullfight, local village fiesta, celebration of local product (such as cheese or ham) or Semana Santa; the ferias and festivals of the region are the purest display of everything that is intrinsically “Andalus” - they are the window to the soul of Southern Spain.
With the gorgeous backdrop of the Templar Castle Church and the ruins of the 12th Century Moorish fortress, it is difficult to imagine a more beautiful or magical setting to enjoy these longstanding Spanish traditions than Aracena.
The town boasts a Theatre which hosts a rich and diverse selection of exhibitions, performances and conferences. There is also the ‘Open Air Sculpture Gallery’ which invites its inhabitants and visitors alike to explore its streets to enjoy the various sculptures scattered throughout the village. Famous for the Gruta de las Maravillas (Cave of Wonders); the local cured ham and artisan cheese industry; its exceptional walking paths and its vibrant festivals and cultural celebrations; Aracena offers an amazing opportunity to experience a dynamic and vital culture that respects its roots and traditions while looking forward to continued growth and sustainability in the future.
It is truly the perfect balance of cultural celebration, relaxed enjoyment of life and a focus on friends and family. Here it is all about living in and for the moment!
