Surrounding Area

Winner of Huelva Province Tourism Award 2002 and accredited as "Quality Accommodation" by the Tourist Boards of Andalucia and Spain.

Situated among some of the finest mountain scenery to be found in Southern Spain, amidst cork oak and chestnut forests, the cottages of Molino Rio Alajar provides a comfortable retreat in a unique Spanish setting. The Parque Natural Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Criss-crossed with ancient paths, some dating from Roman times, the area is a green oasis even during the hot Andalusian summer. The Molino is an ideal point from which to explore this magnificent region. Click on image to zoom A short walk from your cottage, along country lanes lined with stone walls, takes you to the pretty village of Al᪡r with its white houses and winding, cobbled streets. Some of the bars and restaurants stand out for their cosiness and character. High above the cluster of white houses towers la Pe񡠤e Arias Montano, a craggy cliff with a sixteenth century hermitage set on its peak. Al᪡r's name comes from the Arab word for stone, and the fact is that it is a stony peak that dominates the village and presides over the life and doings of its 836 inhabitants. This peak, called Pe񡠤e Arias Montano (after Philip II's unorthodox minister who on retiring felt drawn to this land), next to the Hermitage of Nuestra Se񯲡 de los Angeles, and the charming layout of the town of Al᪡r shines whitely, like the cut-out sillhouette of a giant lizard, against the green of the surrounding forests and meadows. You are visiting an area where fine specimens of Iberian swine are bred.You will find shops where you can buy all kinds of sausage meats, sausages, and of course, acorn-fed hams
