In the heart of the Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche
there are infinite aromas and flavours that will delight you while enjoying this paradise on earth. Among the area's many jewels, the one that shines brightest is the most fabled Iberian ham of the Peninsula, the cream of the crop: our exquisite Huelva ham
, labelled with the Protected Denomination of Origin
The prized Iberian meat from local pigs, fed during the Montanera period (Iberian pigs are allowed to roam freely and to feed on acorns and wild grass), is the star of many traditional dishes that you can taste in every corner of the sierra. Apart from Huelva ham, you will find other fresh and cured meats fresh, which you can enjoy accompanied by the traditional serrano bread.
This rich mountain cuisine also prides itself on its soups and stews, which use only the best ingredients and are patiently cooked by locals using recipes that contain all the flavour and spark of life of its people.
Mushrooms are an important ingredient in our gastronomy, since our mountains are considered one of the spots with the most abundant production of fungi in Andalucia
. Caesar's mushrooms, milk caps and slippery jacks sprout after the autumnal rains, while the prized mushroom par excellence is the "gurumelo" (Amanita ponderosa), which can be found in these unique mountains.
Goat's cheese, rosemary and lavender honey, chestnuts and walnuts, used in stews and in the renowned local pastries, are only some of the wonders that this land has to offer.
A one-of-a-kind gastronomic experience that you cannot miss. Nature, history and unforgettable flavours.
