"La vida loca" Sanlùcar de Guadiana by Taffi

Sanlùcar de Guadiana Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 7 photos

A tiny, tiny village it is, but it has been there for a very, very long time. The origins of Sanl?car date back to prehistoric times. The Romans stopped by, and the Moorish kings named it. Sanl?car means "place situated on the east bank of a river". Do not confuse it with Sanl?car de Barrameda or Sanl?car la Mayor, which also exist.

While I was working in Alcoutim I lived in Sanl?car. I could tell you that there is nothing to see in this tiny village, but then I wouldn't be doing it justice. Or would I?

At times Sanl?car was Portuguese and it was called "Sanl?car de Alcoutim", after its slightly larger neighbour across the Guadiana. At times it was Castilian, as well as Alcoutim. The Guadiana was finally established as the border between the kingdoms of Portugal and Castille in the 13th century.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:laid back, pleasant
  • Cons:tourism is tightening its grip, but you can't have your tapas and eat them :-)
