Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche

Article Index


Geology in the Sierra de Aracena Natural Park is influenced by metamorphic rock and stone. There is an abundance of slate, arising from the compression of sedimentary material, as well as limestone which has led to the creation of marble and other carbonated rock. In the north of the Natural Park, it is common to find granite, large examples of which are easy to spot in the middle of pastureland and chestnut groves.

The Sierra de Aracena Natural Park borders on the Sierra Morena, which stretches from Jaen to Portugal, and has been exploited for thousands of years due to its mineral riches, in particular pyrites.
