Sanlucar de Barrameda

 

Sanlúcar is one of the least popular Andalucian towns that will surely amaze you. Firstly, they have gastronomy: Sanlúcar makes the region’s best seafood on a hallowed waterside strip named Bajo de Guía. Secondly, Sanlúcar’s distinct location right at the northern tip of the esteemed sherry triangle allows its earthy bodegas, settled in the somnolent, monument-strewn old town, to make the much-desired unique manzanilla wine. Furthermore, placed at the mouth of the Río Guadalquivir estuary, Sanlúcar has a quieter, less trammelled access point to the ethereal Parque Nacional de Doñana than the more viral western entry points in Huelva province. If you still want, the town contains a proud nautical history. Both Columbus, on this third sojourn, and Portuguese mariner Fernando de Magallanes set out from this location on their voyages of discovery. Don’t be left out.
