Gastronomic tour in El Rocío
flavours and traditions
The sandy streets in the village of El Rocío, known internationally for its beautiful sanctuary and its religious festival, hide much more than devotions and traditions. We invite you to a tour through their small unseen secrets, a walk around the Mother of the Marshes and to enjoy the flavours of its traditional cuisine and new modern cuisine.
Our invitation consists of a dinner composed ofa selection of dishes served in different establishments of El Rocío, combined with a previous tour of the town to visit its most famous spots, and to take our time with details that normally go unnoticed and enjoy the sunset by the adjacent marshes. If you are interested on birds, we will also spend some time looking at the most interesting species in the Mother of the Marshes that day.
