CORTELAZOR - Sierra de Aracena
The old centre of this tiny, ancient hilltop village, stunningly located within the Parque Natural Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche, has been declared of Cultural interest. Cortelazor itself was founded in the mid-13th century, and these days its economy is based on livestock. You enter by crossing the stone bridge, and once in Cortelazor itself you'll find quaint cobbled streets and whitewashed houses.
