Rocio, an hermitage with yearly pilgrimages of about a million people, originally dates back to the early 17th century. Subsequent rebuilds have given the buildings both religious and architectural interest. Check out the venerated wooden statue of Mary, called the Virgin of El Rocío. The town itself has a frontier feel. Spend some time eating in the tapas bars or window shopping, or just indulge in some people watching.

  • Unpaved, without signals, everything prepared for horses... a luxury nowadays. It has a swamp where there are a lot of birds and there same Doñana National Park.
