When you arrive in El Rocio at late season, you could play Ennio Morricone music and imagine you are playing in a John Ford's movie. The visit of the park in 4X4 or horse riding give a huge view on deers ans plenty of birds.

The virgin of El Rocio is a statue in the church of a small town that looks like country western town, sandy street, horses and carriage around. It's a nice small church and the statue is very small but it's very important for the local.
