How to get from Jerez to Alajar-Aracena by car

How to get from Jerez Airport to Alajar by car:

Approx journey time – 2½hrs

• The airport lies some 7 kms NE of the town. From the airport follow signs to Seville which will take you northbound onto the A4 motorway. It’s less then 90 kms to Seville.
• Coming into the city you’ll come onto the SE 30 ring road. Stay on this motorway, going over a large bridge, always following signs for Merida A66.

To Aracena ⇓
• Follow the motorway A66 northwards towards Merida for some 35kms until you see the exit signs for “Aracena” and “Portugal” where you join the N630 for about 1 km before branching off onto the N433 heading NW (the A66 will convert back into the N630 about 2 km before the turn off to Portugal and Aracena.) Here you branch off on the N433 heading NW. This road is marked off with kilometre posts all the way to the Portuguese border.
• At km 86 the road bypasses Aracena. As you reach the first roundabout go straight on (ignore signs to Alajar to the left) following signs to Portugal and Los Marines. You skirt around Aracena and go straight on at the next two roundabouts.

To Alajar ⇓
• Just after km 96, approx 8 km, turn left at the sign to Fuenteheridos and Pena de Arias Montano. Continue along here, go past a fork to the right after 600m and, after a further 400m, you’ll come to a roundabout, turn left following signs to Alajar, Pena Arias Montano. Continue along – there is a great view at the mirador at the top of the hill and continue down the other side. At the junction turn RIGHT (ignore the sign to Alajar to your left as this takes you right through the village), 1km further turn left sign posted Alajar.

To La Posada de Alajar ⇓
As you enter the village La Posada is on the left hand side before you get to the square. If you can’t park in the square then turn around and come back out to park further up the road you will have just come along.
