Treasure Museum of the Virgen del Rocío
On July 10, 2014, the Bishop of Huelva blessed the Treasure of the Governing Brotherhood of Our Lady of Rocío, installed in the stands of the Sanctuary of the Patron Saint of Almonte, being conditioned to allow access to any person. Its rooms and showcases serve to preserve and display some of the elements of the historical-artistic heritage of this centuries-old religious institution, which help us understand the more than seven centuries of documented history of devotion to Our Lady of Rocío.
The oldest pieces on display are a tile panel dated 1696, the only piece preserved from the primitive religious building from the 13th century; as well as the one known as Corona del Sol, the oldest goldsmith piece from the trousseau of the White Dove, from the 17th century.
A selection of pictorial votive offerings, two complete costumes, or the crown with which the Virgen del Rocío was canonically crowned on June 8, 1919, are some of the pieces that occupy the other showcases, apart from the trousseau of the transfers (sash, cape, hats and cloths), documents, or goldsmith items, as well as a processional float of the Queen of the Marshes, donated in 1933, complete the exhibition space.
The visit ends with the screening of a summary of the film Rocío. Queen and Mother of Andalusia, in an intimate space from which you have a privileged view of the natural environment of Doñana, which helps us understand one of the most pronounced cheers to the Virgen del Rocío, that of “Long live the Queen of the Marshlands!”
