Economic boost for Andalusia

The Senderos del Rocío project aims to generate a positive economic impact in Andalusia, similar to that of the Camino de Santiago in Galicia. It seeks to revitalize vast unpopulated areas with limited resources by promoting lodging, retail, service and restaurant businesses along the proposed routes and in the surrounding areas. It is hoped that pilgrims will be attracted by the diverse opportunities to explore our varied land.

In essence, it is a project aimed at connecting all corners of Andalusia with the Village of El Rocío through rural roads accessible throughout the year, adapted to individual preferences.
