Huelva is a province within Andalucia. The city of Huelva is a coastal city,
along the Costa de la Luz, characterised by the wide estuary that becomes
the River Odiel.
Huelva city has a strong historical link with Spanish Latin America and its
ancient central quarter architecture, with narrow streets, reflects this. It
also has immense buildings and structures from a 19th century industrial expansion.
The expansion in Huelva was undertaken mainly by the English mining company – Rio
Tinto, and it transformed Huelva into one of the most important towns in the
south of the country.
Huelva is the birthplace of the great explorer Christopher Columbus who discovered
America, and as you’d expect there are many monuments and tourist sites
dedicated to him and his journeys. Now the city is a large industrialized
center, with heavy industrial plants and factories lining the Odiel waterfront.
The city is full of Andalucian architecture, including the Cathedral of La
Merced (18th century). The heart of the city is the shady Las Monjas Square. Hotels near Huelva Cathedral.
