Chucena is located in the Huelva region of the countryside and has about 2,000 inhabitants. In the surroundings there are many small rivers and therefore their wines are fruity and young character. In the plain, good pigs are created, as well as lambs so it is common to find an excellent product in the butcher's shops and delis of the town. We emphasize that pigs are raised outdoors and that one of the typical recipes of the zone, the caldereta is of obligatory tasting.
In August, Virgen de la Estrella festivities are celebrated and the village is full of life and revelry. On the third Sunday in May the Divina Pastora and San Isidro Labrador pilgrimages are also celebrated.
The monument that stands out is the Town Hall, built in 1944 and located in Plaza de Andalucía. We must also mention Cruz Chiquita, dating from the 12th century and Nuestra Señora de la Estrella Church from the last third of the 18th century.
In the gastronomy of the zone, we emphasize several typical plates like "Fritá", a several vegetables mix with tomato and chips. We also recommend dishes like "Fritá de asadura", "Sangre con tomate", "Arrope", "Espoleá", "Correores" and the "Sancoche". Last but not least, you cannot leave the town without trying its famous village bread toasted with oil, garlic and sardines.
Chucena is known and praised for the good wine and the magnificent oil that is squeezed.
