DIRECTIONS TO VILLAMANRIQUE DE LA CONDESA
 
From El Rocio:
 
There is a road directly to Villamanrique. From El Rocio take the Almonte road. About 2km from the El Rocio there is a right turn with a sign to Villamanrique. Follow that road and at the roundabout next to La Parrá bar/restaurant go straight on. At the roundabout next to a petrol station  turn right (first exit). After 200 metres there is a second roundabout. Go straight on (second exit). Continue on that road until you reach a junction. Turn right then immediately left. Continue to a T junction. Turn left. In 200 metres there is a cross roads. STOP. Continue straight on to the  next T junction. Turn left. Almost immediately  fork right (first exit) at the mini-roundabout. Bear left in front of the church and immediately after that turn right into the main square (Plaza de España).
 
From Seville:
 
Follow the A49 Huelva road out of the city or from the airport. Leave the A49 at exit 16 signposted Sanlucar la Mayor. Be aware that the exit numbers reflect the distance from the city in kilometers and are therefore not sequential.

At the top of the slip road bear left and go left at the roundabout, third exit. Cross the motorway bridge and go straight at the next roundabout. After 100 metres or so go straight at another roundabout. You are in the town of Benacazon.

Now just follow the winding road to Aznalcazar, the next town. When you reach it DO NOT fork right into the town but follow the by-pass road. Go straight on at each roundabout you come to. You will begin to see signs for the town of Pilas.

Follow the winding road to Pilas. Again, DO NOT fork right into the town just follow the main by-pass road. After passing some industrial buildings and showrooms on your right the road rises steeply to a bridge. SLOW DOWN. At the top of the rise take the exit slip road to Villamanrique. At the bottom of the slip road you will come to a roundabout, take the first exit off that and go under the bridge. Just after that go straight on at the next roundabout and straight on again at the next. You are now on the Villamanrique road.

Follow the Villamanrique road and you will eventually reach a roundabout. Take the second exit into the village. Follow the road until you reach the church. Turn left into the Plaza de España and park. Your guide will meet you there.
 

From Huelva/Portugal:

Take the H30 out of Huelva which joins the A49 from Portugal. Follow A49 Sevilla. Take the Chucena exit shortly after passing the Chucena services. At the top of the slip road turn right. Follow the road to Hiinjos. Continue on the same road which then by-passes Hinojos. Villamanrique is signed from here. Follow this road until you reach the outskirts of Villamanrique. At a roundabout next to a petrol station go straight on (second exit). In 200 metres there is a second roundabout. Go straight on (second exit). Continue on that road until you reach a T junction. Turn right then immediately left. Continue to the next T junction. Turn left. In 200 metres there is a cross roads. STOP. Continue to the next T junction. Turn left. Almost immediately fork right (first exit) at the mini-roundabout. Bear left in front of the church and turn right into the main square (Plaza de España).
