El Rocío
El Rocío The Essential
El Rocío is an astonishing village: its sand-covered streets and houses resembling saloons with their wooden porches and posts to tie horses to are worthy of a Western. It is home to a shrine dedicated to Our Lady of El Rocío, which attracts close to a million people from across Andalusia during the Whitsun weekend every year. The pilgrims travel here in carts and on horses with richly decorated harnesses.
