The Sierra de Aracena is in the natural park which is full of contrasts. Gentle rolling hills and wooded valleys give way to dramatic craggy outcrops on the high peaks. There is a rich and varied wildlife, with plenty of opportunities to spot birds of prey, roaming deer and to hear the woodpeckers and nighting-gales in the spring. It is easy to explore the area on foot along the extensive network of centuries-old mule tracks.
