Virgin of El Rocio, Almonte

(300+ reviews on the web)
Monument Tourist Spot
Virgin of El 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.
