Travel Guide: El Rocío

Located in the province of Huelva, Andalucía, El Rocío is a peculiar little town that could easily be mistaken for some Western film set starring Clint Eastwood.

‘Everyone around the city is just underdressed.’ ‘How about Scandinavia then – where a lot of your items are from?’ ‘They do dress very decently, but it becomes some sort of uniform you know.
