Sierra de Aracena Natural Park is one of the largest protected areas in Spain. In the west of Sierra Morena, the hills are scattered with numerous old villages connected each other by wonderful footpaths.
The woody hills of Sierra de Aracena make a fantastic refuge for the wildlife, so that, the area was declared Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. This Park has lots of lovely typical white towns and villages with old paths between them that have been preserved as a heritage and used for leisure today. From Castaño del Robledo, our start point, our walk goes across orchards, springs, oak woods, black pig farms, streams and the charming towns of Alajar and Linares de la Sierra.

This linear walk can be done in 4 hours at a relaxed pace. We start from Castaño del Robledo, not far from the main road, and take a footpath towards the hippy village of Calabacino through orchards, dehesas and plantations of sweet chestnut trees. We stop for lunch (excluded) at Alajar, the second rainiest point in Spain, where we can feel the water everywhere. We finish in Linares de la Sierra, one of the most charming towns in the Park, after a gradual and enjoyable descent.
