During this section, EuroVelo 1 takes us on a 34 km journey between Puerto Moral and Nerva, starting from the last pastures of the Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche Natural Park and the mining region of Ríotinto, always within the province of Huelva.
Aracena, the heart of the Natural Park, is located a few kilometres from Puerto Moral and deserves a detour to see some of its attractions or to tune up our bicycles in one of its workshops.
The Gruta de las Maravillas, the Ham Museum or its castle are some of the essential visits in our journey through the capital of the Sierra de Aracena. Linares de la Sierra, a small town a few kilometres from Aracena and its mountain architecture, also deserve some time from our visit.
From Puerto Moral, EuroVelo 1 takes us to Valdezufre by the HV–3102, anasphalted road, ideal for the practice of the cycling tourism. It is surrounded by meadows with centennial cork oaks and oaks of great size. From there, we take the N–630 to Higuera de la Sierra, a town that notably exemplifies the culture of water in these mountains through a good number of examples of public laundries, fountains and other hydraulic devices. One example, the Paraje de las Tobas, on the outskirts of the town, deserves special mention.
The Museum of the Cabalgata de Reyes Magos, which tells us about one of the most famous parades in Spain, is another point of interest to visit in Higuera de la Sierra.
Before continuing, we can take a detour and cycle to the town of Zufre, as it is not far away, and visit its historic quarter which has been declared a Site of Cultural Interest.
Following the EuroVelo 1, we enter the Riotinto Mining Region, starting with the town of Granada de Riotinto.This takes us to a Martian landscape that is expressed with the Peña del Hierro, the Natural Monument of Montera de Goosan or the Birth of the Riotinto, all elements that form part of the Río Tinto Protected Landscape and the mining history of these lands.
After the visit, EuroVelo 1 arrives at Nerva, an important mining town in the Andévalo region of Huelva, the last stage in this section, where we find all the necessary services to refresh ourselves and rest before continuing our journey.
