Alájar is one of the prettiest village in the Sierra de Aracena and our last walk started/finished here, too. It is a gorgeous little place with a small main square in the middle of it.
It is also very rural and it was proved quickly as when we arrived we saw a horse tied up just in front of the square.
It has lots of nice white washed houses and in front of many doors there’s a cobbled portal which is very typical in this area.
It is generally a lovely place to stroll around or have an ice cream on one of the benches, like we did.
Behind the village on the side of the hill there’s a great viewpoint, the Peña de las Arias Montano. There’s a lovely church here and a hermitage. It looks slightly touristy with the amount of souvenirs on display.
There’s a nice looking white washed belfry, too.
There are many nice walks around this area so it’s worth looking into.
