We didn’t plan to… but… we ended in El Rocío.
We just looked for a cheap and nice camping next to the Doñana National Park… and… we ended in El Rocío.
Honestly, for us “El Rocío” is a synonym of “sensational press” and of type of people we’re not interested in at all. Once a year, during 1 week in May, there is a huge peregrination of devotes towards El Rocío and sensational press is full of pictures from all the famous people from Andalucía that attends it: people like La Pantoja, TV journalists, bullfighters, models, etc.
So, honestly, we were a bit dramatic, like “Oh, what are we doing here? How did that happen to us?”. We were a bit scared.
But, as we all know, one can have a mental image totally distorted from the reality.
And that was our story: we discovered a magic place that makes you travel to the past, to the wild-wild west, to the heart of the horse-style villages, to the heart of Doñana… We definitely fall in love with El Rocio and we want to make you also love it with this photo diary. Enjoy!
