I was really impressed with the cleanliness of this little donkey sanctuary. The donkeys ( and a few ponies) look very well cared for and have plenty of outside space AND shelter from the hot sun. There is a small shop for buying gifts. Only...More

We always visit El Refugio when in Andalusia. The work they is tremendous and being amongst the donkeys is just so relaxing. As we said in the title it is our most tranquil place.
