This sublime and fairly gentle 5km, two-hour ramble takes you down a verdant valley to beautifully sleepy Linares de la Sierra. The signposted path (PRA48) is easy to find off the HU8105 on the southwestern edge of Aracena, 500m beyond the municipal swimming pool.

You can extend the walk to Alájar (4km, 1½ hours), with the option of returning to Aracena on the 4pm or 4.30pm bus (except Sunday).
