Sierra de Grazalema and the Peaks of Aroche Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Sierra de Grazalema and the Peaks of Aroche

These lie in the far west of the Sierra Morena, close to the Portuguese border, in the north of Huelva province. These mountains are of great geological interest, mainly thanks to the Cave of Marvels, which is just over half a mile long and very beautiful. The region also boasts some marvellous landscapes, like the green oak and cork oak forests, and still bears the traces of previous civilisations. From prehistoric times, for example, there are dolmens and menhirs known as the "Piedras del Diablo" in Aracena, as well as the Hermitage of Saint Eulalia de Mérida and the Arab fortress of Almonaster La Real. However, it is for the traditional breeding of Iberian pigs that this mountainous region is best known. It is from this animal that we get the very popular and so-called "typically Spanish" product that is Iberian ham, also known as Jabugo.
