The history of Sanlúcar is the history of its Manzanilla, a unique tandem, backbone of a city where wineries look out to sea against a backdrop provided by the Doñana National Park and a mosaic of ecosystems harbouring a biodiversity unique in Europe.

Ever since ancient times Sanlúcar has provided a meeting point for numerous cultures, thanks to its condition as a natural harbour, and during the age of the trading voyages to and from the New World it became one of the most active in Spain.

The town centre of Sanlúcar de Barrameda is Muslim in origin, conserved in its present day appearance, with narrow streets that extend and zig-zag down to the sea and the River Guadalquivir. The architectural legacy left by different occupying cultures over the centuries include the outstanding fifteenth century Santiago Castle, nineteenth century Infantes de Orleans y Borbón Palace, currently in use as the Sanlúcar de Barrameda Town Hall, the fourteenth century church of Nuestra Señora de la O, and the sixteenth century Duques de Medina Sidonia Palace and convent of Santo Domingo

Its mild climate, the beaches of Bajo de Guía, la Calzada, las Piletas and la Jara, the variety of its local festive calendar, with events and celebrations such as the Manzanilla Fair, the Music Festival and the Sanlúcar Horse Races, declared of International Tourist Interest, its exquisite cuisine, with the prized king prawn “langistino de Sanlúcar” as a prime example, along with the beautiful Manzanilla bodegas that provide an exceptional attraction for wine enthusiasts, all combine to make a tourist destination that, without doubt, will captivate its visitors.

Sanlúcar de Barrameda was named European Capital of Gastronomy in 2022.
