Doñana National Park

Marshy area

The river Guadalquivir flows through Córdoba, Sevilla and ends then in an marshy delta at the Atlantic coast, between Cádiz and Huelva.

The marshlands are protected as a National Park, where no entry is allowed. At the western side of the park a large buffer zone is open for tourists.

Dry, sandy area

This buffer is partly a marshland, like the Doñana itself, and partly a dry, sandy area with small pine trees and bushes.

Palacio El Acebron

The Palacio El Acebron is transformed into a visitor center.

Around the palace is a short walking trail (1.5 km). Part of the trail leads over bridges across marshy areas. If you think 1.5 km is a little short, there's another 3.5 km trail at the entrance to the park.

El Rocio

The nearby village, El Rocío, attracts a lot of people around Whitsuntide. A procession from Sevilla arrives here to worship the Holy Virgin of El Rocío. The floats are beautiful, they say. We were here in October, so we can't confirm this.
