Donana is a national park on the coast near Sevilla and Cadiz. It's very special because there are a lot of threatened animals living there. We saw loads of birds like flamingo's and eagles and also deer, wild boar and horses. The lynx lives here as well, but we didn't see it. The nature is beautiful from swamp to sand dunes.
You can't enter the national park yourself, as you'll need permits. You can walk into it though. You can make reservations with the visitors centre and they'll take you into the park with four wheel drive busses (€25). The numbers are restricted, so be on time.
Tours leave at 8.30 and 15.00 in winter and 8.30 and 17.00 in summer.
A very nice restaurant Rociana del Condado (Huelva), offers a menu varied with excellent meats, delicious casseroles and delicious desserts with a very caring service. Our offer goes beyond the traditional Andalusian cuisine, mixing the Mediterranean market cuisine. The snack cart as a starter to share, salads and meats have a leading role, without forgetting the traditional dishes.
Favorite Dish: "Cocido de verduras"
"Chuleton de Buey"
"Fondue de chocolate con fresas"
This also was the only restaurant open in the near vicinity. The food and service were real nice though. You could see it was really posh, so the food was really good too.
Favorite Dish: They had a lot of seafood (figures), but the meat also was really well done. The desserts were pretty deep frozen, but still good.
This extense preserve including beach areas with moving dunes as well as marshy regions of great value concerning their fauna is located next to the outlet of Guadalquivir river, Matalascañas and El Rocio.
