Aracena is a town and municipality located in the province of Huelva, Spain. According to the 2007 census, the city has a population of 7,351 inhabitants.

It's a very cute town with a lot of historics monuments and an amazing cave: The Gruta de las Maravillas (Cave of Marvels).

The Gruta de las Maravillas is one of the most spectacular cave systems in Spain. The caves are located below the hill on which the castle stands and they are said to have been found by a boy looking for a lost pig. Several caverns and lakes are linked by narrow passages. Coloured lighting adds to the effects of the unusual formations of minerals. In the complex is an interesting, geological museum.
