In the heart of the Sierra de Albarracín, by the River Majaceite and surrounded by valleys, is the former retreat of the Dukes of Arcos de la Frontera, with its white streets dotted with fountains and flowers.
Its artistic legacy is made up of the Parish Church of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, the Duke’s Palace, the Calvario Hermitage and a unique Bullring. El Bosque is ensconced amidst leafy woods and strewn with springs of medicinal water, making it the perfect environment for all kinds of active tourism. The area is also perfect for paragliding and hang-gliding, The “El Castillejo” Botanical Garden, where all the main ecosystems in Sierra de Grazalema are represented, and the ruins of Tavizna Castle, just 5 kilometres from El Bosque, are two other places to enjoy your free time.
