Travel Blogs from Aracena
Olvera was a failure yesterday, not only did it rain but the bike rental on the Via Verde de la Sierra was closed. Left Arcos this morning, it was a nice little town and a great view from our apt but we had enuf of the mizzle and the roosters. We travelled past Sevilla up in to the mountains on the way west to Portugal. Found a quaint little town to stay in called Cortegna.
