El Coronil Municipality

El Coronil is a village in the Sevillian countryside located 54 km (40 min) from the capital. Very well connected, it has a strategic location between the provinces of Seville, Cadiz and Malaga.

Its landscape environment is formed by the gentle undulations typical of the countryside and approaching the province of Cádiz we find the topography and vegetation typical of the pre-mountain range that leads us to the Vía Verde. The main waterways that cross the municipal area are the Arroyo Salado and the Guadalete River.

Depending on the season in which we find ourselves, we can contemplate a sea of green or ocher wheat fields, the contrast of sunflowers or the calm of the brown image of the calm land.

Town of traditions, rich gastronomy and hospitable people. In incipient tourism and business development, it has the largest photovoltaic solar installation in Andalusia and an incipient agri-food industry with cutting-edge technology.
