Travel Blogs from Fuentes de Leon
For our last full day in the Sierra Aracena the day dawned bright despite a few more torrential downpours through the night.

cheese in the Sierra de Aracena is made mostly from goat milk but more closely
resembles the better known Manchego cheese which is usually made from sheep
milk. It was a somewhat unusually flavored dish.
