ROCÍO-El Viso del Alcor

Seville enchants

 

The museum opened in March 2007 explores the close relationship that this town, considered an important hub of rail communications, has maintained with the railway since the 19th century, as well as the history and impact of the train on the development and economy of the municipality.

This museum dedicated to cultural and natural heritage is located on the banks of the River Cala. The audiovisual resources explore the local history and its key location on the Camino de Santiago. The great variety of stuffed animals and the collection of fossils reveal the rich fauna of this historical area, with the griffon vulture standing out for its size in its second room.

The cultural centre, located in one of the finest examples of civil architecture in the county, houses a museum on the history of writing. 

It also has an area dedicated to the life and legacy of José Manuel Lara Hernández, founder of the Planeta publishing group, who is an El Pedroso native. This centre also focuses on the enormous relevance of mining in the town’s development.

Located in Ecija’s historical centre, the “Casa-Museo Hermandad de San Gil” was created when the Sacramental Confraternity and Royal Archconfraternity (1563) found adequate space to carry out their mission and confraternity activities. 

In the heart of the Sierra Norte Natural Park in Seville, 1.4 kilometres from the town of Constantina, is the El Robledo Visitor's Centre. At the centre, the visitor will learn about and even perceive the pleasant sound of riverside woods and the smells of the aromatic plants of the Mediterranean countryside.

It is located in an 18th-century building known as the Casa del Aire. The Museum of Women in Flamenco is the only existing centre of its kind in the world, where visitors can gain insight into the living history of this acclaimed form of art.

Conceived as a great centre for exhibitions and other artistic expressions, where the permanent collection rooms on the history of Alcalá coexist with the temporary exhibitions that allow us to gain an insight into the contemporary panorama of the plastic arts.
