Villages of the Andévalo
Campo de Andévalo is a historical region located in the province of Huelva. It is located between the Sierra de Aracena, the Tierra Llana de Huelva and the border with Portugal, a transitional space between the coastal plain and the reliefs of the mountainous area.
Explore the region of Andévalo and visit some of its villages. In Alosno, the cradle of the Fandango, you will find the millenary Minas de Tharsis, a profession as traditional as current, since to a large extent the town lived from the exploitation of its resources.
Continuing with the mining towns, let yourself be surprised by Minas de Rio Tinto. Its lands, rich in minerals such as gold, silver and copper, have been inhabited since ancient times. Among the most interesting sites are the Mining Museum and the so-called Maharajah’s Wagon.
In Calañas you can visit the Embalse de La Hoya, a very suitable destination for fans of sports such as hiking, horse riding, mountain biking and hang gliding. For families we recommend the activity via Ferrata “El Morante” especially suitable for people who are not used to climbing.
If we talk about the gastronomy of Andévalo we highlight its calderetas, mushrooms such as gurumelo or turma, migas as well as a pastry of simple ingredients such as roses, esesitas de Calañas, roscos, cakes and piñonates that always taste better if accompanied by a local orujo.
