Welcome to Linares de la Sierra
Just 7km west of Aracena along the HU8105, you’ll bump into one of the area's cutest villages, Linares de la Sierra. Surrounded by a verdant river valley, its cobbled streets are renowned for their 300-odd llanos (front-patio mosaics) and are lined with oddly angled, tiled-roof houses. In the centre, behind the 18th-century Iglesia de San Juan Bautista, a minute bullring plaza is paved with concentric rings around a shield of flowers. From the village's fringes, signposted walking paths fan out into the hills towards Aracena and Alájar.
