Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park

The 187,000 hectares was designated a natural park in 1986. It is the 2nd largest park in Andalucia and is by far the most varied thanks to the mixed Mediterranean and Atlantic climate we enjoy.  There are 4 ecosystems which allow an enormous variety of flora and fauna. You can spot birds of prey such as golden eagles, black vultures, black and red kites; carnivores such as wild cats, genets, foxes, beech martens and otters wild boar and deer. The park traditionally harvests cork from the cork oak tree and wild mushroom picking is common. A variety of animals are reared here but the most famous and widespread is the Iberian pig which is one of the pillars of the region´s rich gastronomy.
