Almonte

Travel Guide

Come enjoy a holiday in Almonte and discover a true Andalusian town known for its natural attractions, religious architecture and its long history.

Almonte is a town in the province of Huelva, famous as the site of Doñana National Park ─one of the most important ecological reserves in Europe─ and the coastal town of Matalascañas, a magnet for tourism. Interested? Then check out our cheap trips to Almonte for your next adventure!

Almonte boasts a City of Culture, a centre inaugurated in 2011 that consists of a municipal theatre and library, and a multi-purpose cultural centre that is a replica of the church of Baler, where the siege of the "last of the Philippines" took place in 1898. This is because one of the members of the Spanish troops involved was a native of Almonte.

Another building worth mentioning is the shrine of El Rocío, a temple that serves more than one million inhabitants. The current building is from 1969, and offers a splendid, Neo-Baroque style. The beauty and sheer size of the site is sure to take your breath away!

Almonte also has a series of natural attractions that will please even the most demanding tastes. You won't want to miss out on an excursion through the dune park of Matalascañas, a route of about 3 miles, with the pine trees and the sea as a stunning backdrop.

Of course, the real protagonist of Almonte is undoubtedly Doñana National Park, a mosaic of ecosystems with biodiversity unlike anywhere else in Europe. Thousands of European and African birds live there, as well as unique and seriously endangered species such as the Iberian imperial eagle and the Iberian lynx. Top off your package deal to Almonte by visiting the Francisco Bernis ornithological centre, an excellent vantage point from which to take in the views and spot the birds in the lagoon.

The nearest airport is in Seville. When you land, you can take a coach or taxi to the city centre and, once there, take a direct bus to Almonte. Check out our travel deals to Almonte and treat yourself to a restful getaway; you know you deserve it!

El Rocio
"The hotel is in 2 buildings, we stayed in the new part, but we didnt get the view we wanted [over the lake]. Breakfast was a bit disappointing , the rate included breakfast but we had to pay extra if you wanted eggs. Bed was comfortable and room was good with usb port to charge mobiles."
