    For our last full day in the Sierra Aracena the day dawned bright despite a few more torrential downpours through the night. We started with a short drive to the nearby village of Fuenteheridos from which the walk was started through a broad valley populated by gentleman estate owners from the cities and their preferred versions of agriculture – horses, cattle, sheep, and a few orchards instead of pigs. We progressed over a ...

    ... Jamon Serrano has a somewhat slimy, greasy
    texture and over-salted flavor, but the Iberico and de Bellota I’ve had has
    been really delicious. Therefore, it carries a major price premium in
    restaurants and tapas bars.

    Well, it was another long slog in the rain down into the
    valley and then up to Castano del Robledo. Dinner again did not commence until
    9:00 at Bar Robles with big platters of mixed salad, Croquetas (croquettes),
    and ...

    Tuesday dawned clearer and warmer, good news for the long
    hike planned for the day mostly along the ridge tops of the highest peaks in
    the Sierra. I should point out that this was somewhat less dramatic than it
    might sound. The peaks in the area are only about 900 meters (3,000 feet) and
    the walk along the ridge was through woods and farms with only occasional good
    vistas across the mountains. The last part of the hike ...

    ... Serrano Ham, Marinated Red Pepper Salad, and Marinated Chargrilled Cuttlefish
    and Onion Salad. The main course was local Lomo de Cerdo Iberico en Salsa de
    Queso de Cabra (Loin of Iberian Pig in Goat Cheese Sauce). The local produced
    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.
