Route through the Protected Designation of Origin area of Iberian ham in Huelva

Huelva Ham is a protected designation of origin of Iberian ham

Huelva Ham is a protected designation of origin of Iberian ham. It is very well known ham because of its texture, aroma and particular distinguished taste with its centre in Jabugo (Huelva) in the heart of the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Na

Although Jabugo is a small village it has great charm and most of its inhabitants work in the Iberian ham and cooked meats industry.

However the Sierra de Aracena has a lot more charms than just its cuisine.

Almonaster la Real, surrounded by forest, has the most beautiful rural mosque of its kind; Cortegana has its impressive castle; Cumbres Mayores is proud of its outstanding fortress, at the same time it has famous drying sheds where the Iberian ham is cured.

Galaroza, Aroche, Linares de la Sierra, Fuenteheridos, in fact any of these places is worth a leisurely visit. La Peña de Arias Montano is the site of the Sanctuary dedicated to Our Lady of Angels from where there are fantastic views of the mountains.

In Aracena, besides the charms of the village, like the Templar castle and the Plaza del Marqués de Aracena, there is one of nature’s wonders: la Gruta de las Maravillas, one of the most attractive tourist caves in Spain.

Although the Iberian pig farming goes on in the mountain areas, Huelva has a unique heritage and natural wealth that demands an unhurried visit. Its beaches attract numerous visitors and the protected nature in Doñana are attractions worth mentioning.
