Close to nature and local tradition
El Rocío is a fantastic location for nature lovers and those wanting to get immersed in traditional Spain, while La Aldea is a modern campsite offering a wide range of high quality facilities and services. Both are located on the edge of the most important protected nature area in Europe, the unique Doñana natural park – an area with more than 300 bird species, including one of the world’s largest colonies of Spanish imperial eagles. The natural areas are accessible through a number of visitor centres, nature trails with guided half-day safari trips in four-wheel drive vehicles, horse-guided routes, waymarked walks and boardwalks, visitor centres and observatories. You’re almost sure to see wild boar and fallow or red deer and may even be lucky enough to see the endangered Spanish lynx.
Members will not fail to be impressed by the area and the friendliness of campsite staff and locals. In keeping with the surrounding natural park, El Rocío has deliberately kept its traditional sand streets and hitch rails for horses, and is a popular place of pilgrimage. The regular Sunday brotherhood parades and horse-bound activities, within walking distance from La Aldea, are a remarkable sight and there is a major pilgrimage in the last weekend of January.
Among the other places not to be missed are: Seville – historic capital of Andalucía, with its Gothic cathedral; Huelva and the Columbus trail, with the Gothic Mudejar Monastery and replicas of Columbus’ ships at Caravel wharf; the coastal route between Mazagón and Matalascañas; the Sierras – a green and luxuriant natural park to the north; and Minas de Riotinto – the “Red-River Mines”, with links to Queen Victoria and Britain’s introduction of football and tennis to Spain; Sierra de Aracena and Valverde del Camino where old traditions are kept alive today.
