The charm of this particular trail is the chance of seeing unusual birds in such a wonderful setting as Aracena Castle. The choicest titbits here are two rare winter visitors: Alpine Accentor and Wallcreeper. Rock-loving birds that have also taken to built-up areas might be spotted too, such as the Blue Rock Thrush, White Stork, Crag Martin or Black Redstart. It is also a fine vantage point for soaring birds like Booted Eagle, Griffon Vulture or Red Kite. These birds share the stage with reptiles like the Iberian Wall Lizard or Large Psammodromus and the Mediterranean Yellow Scorpion. More information in the book Birding and Nature Trails in Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche.
