The Hamlet of El Rocio

In a privileged location fifteen kilometres south of Almonte, on the edge of Doñana and touching the sea, the Hermitage of El Rocío, home to its virgin Paloma Blanca (White Dove) and Queen of the Marshes.

Four roads lead to the village: the road Sanlúcar from Doñana, Los Llanos from Almonte; Moguer road to the west and Ajola road to the east. From all four corners, Rocío represents, in the most profound way for the people of the county, the faith and beating heart of the locals, combining the religion and faith of the people of the county with the vivacity and joy of our fiestas, processions and other local traditions.

Each year, for the Pentecost more than a million people pilgrimage to worship the Queen of the Marshes, the Virgin of Rocío. They come here with hearts full of dreams and hopes, joys and prayers, as they feel this place to be unique in the world, full of spirituality and magic. Another Rocío, Chico, is celebrated in August, and every seven years the Shepherdess is moved to her beloved Almonte, providing travellers with moments of devotion, passion and unforgettable memories.
