Palomares del Río is 12 km from Seville. It belongs to the region of Aljarafe and is in the surroundings of the Vega del Guadalquivir and very close to the Pudio river.

Although its origins date back to Roman times, its historic centre comes from a farmhouse (alquería) of the times of Muslim domination. It stands out for being a town of olive-growing tradition, so we will find several olive groves (haciendas) within its historic quarter, today restored for cultural purposes, such as the Hacienda Ulloa, converted into the current House of Culture.

The most important architectural treasure of this town is the amazing and well preserved Arab Baths of the 12th-century, a unique hamman in the province of Seville located in a protected archaeological area and declared a Site of Cultural Interest.

Our town is part of the Mosto (grape juice) Route, the typical drink of this region. It is also included in the Rice Route for the fame of its star dish, the caldoso (soupy) rice with field chicken.

Visit us in spring if you are a flamenco lover. You will enjoy the GuiriJondo Flamenco Festival. If you are a devotee of the Virgen del Rocío, be sure to come on the day the town’s wagons set off. It is a very emotional and eagerly awaited moment for the locals.

Visit us in September and live our fair, which coincides with the patron saint festivities to the Virgin de la Estrella.
