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