Seville enchants

San Pedro was a former resting place for cattle now turned into a recreational area, where the Alanís Pilgrimage is held every year. It is located within the Sierra Norte Natural Park.

Facilities in the Park include barbecues, tables and benches, toilets, playground, fountains and garbage bins, a camping area and Los Carros Path.

The park is located in a municipally-owned farm with the same name, on the northernmost foothills of the Aljarafe Cornice the Aljarafe. The most outstanding feature of this green area is semi-free-ranging farm animals that captivate the youngest visitors. They often come to feed the animals, having become part of a local tradition.

The Juncal is a periurban park located about 2 km from the town.

Its approximately 5 hectares are populated with eucalyptus and other typical Mediterranean shrub species such as rosemary, tamarisk and thyme. An Andalusian regionalist-style arch and several buildings with tile roofs and whitewashed walls stand at the entrance.
