This place looks like like a village in a cowboy film, sandy road, small houses, a cute church in the middle of the village and horses with wagon on the street. The church is not really exceptional, full of local, the virgin Mary statue on...More

This is a church, not really a hermit, in the middle of a dusty town where the streets look like remnants of the Wild West, dirt streets , no side walks and plenty of dust and horses. Parking near it is difficult and on weekends...More

Small cathedral, with beautiful altar. It was within walking distance and was well worth the stroll. There is a meadow along the roadway, with many horses grazing, plus it was mating season for deer, so there was a lot of male deer calling their potential...More

The Ermida is a white fresh oasis of sanctity and peace built into the middle of a dusty little town called El Rocio. El Rocio is so picturesque with its horses and sandy streets that it looks like we’re back in the Wild West in...More
