On the edge of the "marismas" (saltmarshes) and surrounded by simple houses, stands, majestic white-walled ermita de la Virgen del Rocío (Hermitage of the Virgin of tje Dew).

Throughout the year many visitors come to se the Blanca Paloma (White Dove), as the Virgin is popularly known. However, the main reason for the hermitage and village is the Whitsun celebration of the Romeria del Rocío (The Rocío Pilgrimage).
