Visit Aracena, the Cave of Wonders & the Museum of Iberian Ham

Situated in the north of the province, 106 km from Huelva, Aracena belongs to the Natural Mountain Park of Aracena and the Aroche Peaks, an area of great environmental value declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.

Explore its main attraction, the spectacular Cave of Wonders (La Gruta de las Maravillas). A source of inexhaustible beauty, forged by time and nature, the fusion of simple water and stone elements has created a strange, subterranean landscape that fires the imagination. Its 12 caverns contain long corridors, stalactites and stalagmites arranged in wonderful patterns, and stunning underground lagoons. Discovered at the end of the 19th century, it was opened to the public in 1914 as the first tourist Cave in Spain.

The Museum of Iberian Ham is a must-visit. Through its seven rooms, you discover, little by little, our protagonist: the pig. You get to know the process of upbringing, its life in the field, its power, traditional and industrial killing, the curing and development process, as well as the process of maturation in the cellar. Discover all this in an enjoyable and educational way through audiovisual media: panels and projections that, with the guide’s explanations, give support and clarification of queries that could be formulated. We won’t come back to Seville without tasting the delicious Iberian Ham.
