Located a little bit off the beaten track, this province situated between Seville and Portugal holds a great natural beauty. One of Spain´s National Parks is situated here, Doñana, where, amidst sand dunes, marshes, pinewoods and freshwater lagoons live flamingos, plus rare buzzards, lynx, mongoose and a startling variety of migratory birds.
Along the Atlantic coast, which is famous for its special light (Costa de la Luz. Light Coast), visitors can enjoy unspoilt golden sandy beaches, several beach resorts like Punta Umbria (famous for its seafood) or Matalascañas, situated only 85 km from Sevilla, with numerous hotels and restaurants.
On the way to this resort we pass through the famous pilgrimage village of El Rocio, the site of Spain's largest religious pilgrimages. This is also the route to access the visitor's centres of the Doñana National Park.
In the north the rolling hills and pine forests of Sierra de Aracena hold pure nature for visitors who want to escape mass tourism. Some of the attractions which can be found here are the caves of Marvel in Aracena and the village of Jabugo which is famous for its cured hams and other meat products.
The closest airports are Seville airport and El Faro airport in Portugal.
