Aguadulce, a town between market gardens

The small town of Aguadulce sits on the foothills of Seville’s Sierra Sur, between Osuna and Estepa. This town, famous since remote times for its market gardens watered by the River Blanco, is today a beautiful town with white houses and friendly locals. Although it has a small town centre, it harbours architectural treasures, such as the Renaissance-style San Bartolomé Church and the Roman Stone Bridge

The quiet setting and quality of life and its proximity to the A-92 motorway makes Aguadulce an ideal destination for rural tourism. Sample the delicious cuisine, based on the local agricultural produce, such as cazuela de habas and alcachofas rellenas. Enjoy a stroll through the countryside, along the banks of the River Blanco or visit the local riding school where Spanish purebred horses are bred.

Above all, come to Aguadulce and relax.

What to see 

Begin your visit to this small Sevillian town at Plaza Blas Infante where the Town Hall is located. This square is the beating heart of the town. You can stand opposite the Pepe Hara House and admire its impressive façade. This country house was the first farmers’ social club in Aguadulce. 

Just a few minutes away, on the street running parallel, is the town’s main monument, San Bartolomé Church, named after Aguadulce’s patron saint. This Renaissance temple was completed in the 18th century. The building hides interesting architectural details that you can only discover if they are pointed out. Opposite the church is the Plaza de Santa Ángela where you can sit and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this town. 

Just behind the parish church is the Jardín de Dolores, the most picturesque and endearing place. This beautiful garden bears the name of the woman who works hard to keep it impeccable.

What better way to end your visit than strolling through Aguadulce’s famous market gardens. Visit the Las Huertas Interpretation Centre and learn about the history of this Sevillian town. Then continue walking until you reach the Stone Bridge with a picnic area where you can enjoy a day outdoors on the banks of the River Blanco.
