Aznalcázar is a town located in the province of Seville, southern Spain. It is only 20 minutes away from Seville, and is one of the 13 towns located in Doñana National Park, one of Spain’s most important national parks and wildlife reserves.
As most Spanish towns, Aznalcázar has an active social and cultural life, with several bars and restaurants, annual “fiestas”, two supermarkets, one Spanish language school for foreigners and 3 banks. It is also home to Las Minas golf course.
Public transportation connects Aznalcázar with Seville, as well as nearby towns and landmarks such as El Rocío.
The town could be possibly identified with Olontigi, an ancient Iberian settlement of which not much is known but its coinage issue between the 2nd and 1st centuries BC, bearing the Latin inscription OLVNT. The Barrington Atlas of the Ancient World equates this site with modern Aznalcázar.
