Detailed Description

Doñana National Park is one of the most important natural reserves in Europe and was named a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1994. Thousands of visitors come to Doñana annually to appreciate its unrivalled wealth of flora and fauna, with hundreds of species that attract researchers and experts from all over the world. The first display of this is the village of El Rocío, where a religious atmosphere lives together with a totally unspoilt environment. Furthermore, if we add the Condado de Huelva wines, it results in a magnificent proposal. The visit to Bodegas Privilegio del Condado and the Wine Interpretation Center will take you into the wine culture and, if you already are, will provide you more knowledge and experience.

Our trip will start by visiting the Wine Interpretation Center, a modern and recently built building located in Bollullos par del Condado, where we will get to know the history of the famed Condado de Huelva wines, also called the Discovery of America wines. Afterwards we will take a walk through one of the largest wine cellars in the area,Bodegas Privilegio del Condado, annexed to the center visited previously. We will be informed of the processing stages of their products and see how and where they preserve the wine, the tasting room, the projection room and the imposing ageing cellar, also used for special events. However, this visit would be incomplete if we didn’t try the wines, so we will try them while an expert explains to us how to enjoy them to the maximum, making sure we leave the wine cellar with heightened knowledge about the wine industry.

On our way to El Rocío we will step into some of the most important crops nearby, specially vineyards, so that we find out the steps followed until it comes the time of the harvest.

Later on we will head to Huelva’s most important sanctuary, El Rocío Hermitage, home of the Virgin of El Rocío. Every year in may or june, dozens of brotherhoods come here from both close and far, driven by the faith of thousands of pilgrims and their faith to see the Virgin one more time. The altarpiece and the altar itself are really amazing and attract the attention of those who visit the shrine. Another aspect that will surprise you is the streets of the this town, which will for sure remind you of Western films. Furthermore, you will discover a magical landscape drawn by the marshes near the Hermitage, where horses, mares and foals graze and set a one-off scene.

Finally we will step into one of Huelva’s province biggest wonders: the Doñana National Park. This place is the destination of thousands of birds that annually migrate from Africa to Northern Europe and choose Doñana to stop and recover to continue then with their journey. Along the Park we will be able to see deers, games, wild boars and if we are lucky we might see Doñana’s symbol: the iberian lynx.
