If you take the tour of the castle, you also see this. Tour is inexpensive & takes about an hour. Only downside for us was that there was no English translation available - Spanish only.

This is really worth the short climb to the summit, overlooking the town and and the surrounding countryside. You really feel the hand of history here, and you see the layers of the Moors and the Christians. It's a lovely place to see the sunset.

If you are in Aracena you should climb to the fort. From here you have a great view over the valley. For the way back you can choose a new track (e.g. turn right towards the Cathedral).

. Walking up. Staggering up. We did a lot of uphill walking in the Sierra de Aracena! But it's always worth it as the views are wonderful. The beautiful archway can be seen from a long way away, and if you are there at a...More
