The Sierra de Huelva, sometimes referred to as “the lungs of the province”, is where a large part of Huelva’s forest area is to be found. Flat Huelva disappears, and we head towards the foothills of the Sierra Morena.
As we drive, the client can discover and admire the beautiful countryside, scattered with small towns and villages along our way. On arrival at the Mining Area of Riotinto we shall enjoy a panoramic visit of Cerro Colorado, from which point we can admire the unique scenery that man has gradually created over the centuries by his exploitation of the land. Here we shall learn about the important history of the mining area, and its social transformations until the present day.
Afterwards, we shall continue straight on to the capital of the sierra, the town of Aracena, where we can learn at first-hand about the beautiful town, its traditions and its gastronomy…
There we shall visit the “Grutas de las Maravillas”, an authentic “Journey to the Centre of the Earth”, where the visitor can explore an extraordinary expanse of more than 1km of underground tunnels and caves, with stalagmites, stalactites and tectonic lakes… The visit to the Centre of the Earth lasts one hour.
Also that same morning, we shall take advantage of the opportunity to visit a “drying house” where hams and other products of the famous iberian pig are cured, and where we can learn about the secrets of this local tradition. The visit will include a chance to sample some of the iberian produce, which will be served within this establishment.
After the visit we will return to the hotel for dinner.
