During this week, you will be able to discover the most beautiful villages of our Sierra such as Almonaster la Real, Castaño del Robledo, Aracena, Galaroza, Linares, Los Marines, Fuenteheridos and Jabugo, where the world’s best acorn-fed Iberian pigs are bread. Most of the villages visited during your stay are villages that have been declared historic sites of interest.
Your stay will be at the rural paradise of Molino Río Alájar; a collection of 6 stone built cottages situated in a peaceful valley close to the pretty town of Alájar, which is considered to be one of the jewels of the Sierra de Aracena. The Sierra de Aracena is the largest natural park in Andalucia, extending to more than 186 000 hectares, and constitutes a large forest mass consisting of holm oaks, cork oaks, chestnuts, and riverside forests, which form a natural area of great ecological value.
With this cycling holiday of six circular day-long routes starting and finishing each day at Molino Río Alájar, you can explore the extensive and complex network of public footpaths and country lanes that link the towns and villages, making the Sierra de Aracena a privileged environment for mountain biking.
