Where we are


Ver mapa más grande

Alájar is only 100 kms away from Sevilla, the main city with airport.

By public transport:

Sevilla

  • From Seville airport:
    Taxis from airport to city cost around 23 euros. (fixed rate to first drop off point ) They take around 30 mins to Plaza de Armas bus station, more at rush hour. If your flight is not going to get in before 3.00pm then it is very unlikely you’ll get to the station in time for the last bus to Aracena.

If this is the case the two other options are to come by taxi – we can arrange the airport pick up for you at a cost of around 120 euros for upto 4 people., or to spend the night in Sevilla before coming up to La Sierra. Again we can recommend and book hotels in Sevilla if you require.

  • Buses also make the trip from airport to city; however these go to a different bus station than the one needed for Aracena / Alajar, once in the city you’ll have to take a taxi or a bus between stations. You can download a pdf document with a list of airport bus departure times from the Seville Urban Transport website. Avenida del Cid is next to the Prado San Sebastian bus station in the city centre. The airport bus costs 2.40 euros and takes about 30 mins to the city. 
  • From Seville city:
    Buses from Seville to Aracena depart twice daily from the Plaza de Armas bus station in the city. These are modern, air conditioned coaches with plenty baggage space beneath.
  • Cost: around 7 Euros
  • Journey time: Under 1 1/2  hrs
