The Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche Natural Park covers 185.000 hectares, practically all covered by forests, mainly holm oaks and cork oaks. The landscape is rich in contrast, with rolling hills and wooded valleys leading gradually to steep rocky outcrops on the high peaks.

We must highlight the abundance of chestnut trees, which together with other deciduous trees decorate these hills with beautiful colours during the autumn. But if the Sierra de Aracena is known for something, it is for being the Mecca of the Iberian pig, which lives in the so-called “Dehesas”.

We will start our route in the small village of Fuenteheridos and head towards the village of Castaño de Robledo, although we will not reach it. We will make a circular route that will take us back to Fuenteheridos.

Most of the route runs in the shade of old chestnut trees, so although it can be done throughout the year, it is especially attractive during the autumn.

We will follow mainly narrow paths and roads with very little traffic. The accumulated difference of the route is not high, and is covered progressively, so it’s a very pleasant walk.

If you prefer to do another route of higher difficulty or duration, or located in other areas of the park, please contact us. The extension of trails in this area is very long and we are sure to find the best option for you.
