Time: Three hours.
Taking the road from Almonaster to Alájar, outside the town and
after having crossed a small bridge to our left, there is a well-preserved
forest track which leads to the top of the Cerro de San Cristóbal.
At first the track runs on through a chesnut grove, through some oaks
and holm oaks can be seen as well, but subsequently it crosses ans area
of thickets rich in gorses and furzes. While ascending, we shall observe
on our left an area of fruit trees which is very beautiful.
The track runs on round the mountain and near the final strech we shall
take a junction to the right to finally reach the top, 917 m. high, from
where a splendid view of towns, villages and mountains can be seen. It
is the second highest peak in the Sierra de Aracena.
