About this location
The Andalucia region
THE PROVINCE OF HUELVA is among the least visited areas of Andalucia. Consequently, much of the zone has remained a rural hinterland, where times move slowly and the old customs prevail. Some of the finest nature reserves are here, too, including the ecologically essential Donana National Park, mountainous reaches and pristine beaches, generally frequented by Spaniards rather than tourists. Culturally rich as well, each town and village shelters surprising art treasures and ancient marvels, where you may find yourself the only visitor – a welcome relief after the throngs encountered elsewhere in Andalucia
Huelva, capital of the province, is strategically located between the Rivers Tinto and Odiel. Founded by the Phoenicians, Huelva was at its peak under the Romans – The Provincial Museum conserves remarkable archaeological finds. Taken over by the Arabs and seized from them by Alfonso X in 1257, it was seriously damaged by an earthquake in 1755. Some of the monuments from before the catastrophe still remain, such as the 16th century churches of San Pedro and la Concepcion, and the ancient Mercedarian convent converted into a cathedral in the 18th century. Intensive mining activity at the beginning of the 20th century characterized the urban architecture of some areas with a distinctive hallmark, as can be seen at Casa Colon. Huelva boasts its own El Corte Ingles departmental store on Plaza de Espana, while the area around it and just off Plaza 12 de Octobre constitutes the main shopping district. The open air market is held every Friday on the Recinto Colombino. The city’s other claim to fame is as the starting point when Christopher Columbus set sail from Huelva and on 12th October 1492 landed on one of the Bahamian islands and the discovery of the new world.
DONANA NATIONAL PARK
The vast delta of the Guadalquivir River constitutes one of the worlds most important nature reserves without which birdlife throughout Europe would be seriously compromised. The zone has a fascinating mix of terrains, but can be visited on guided tours only. The largest nature reserve in Europe and southern Spain’s only national park was established in 1969. It covers more than 247,000 acres, including its surrounding buffer zones, and its wide variety of ecosystems, rare fauna and abundance of bird life make it so vital to the environmental stability of Western Europe that it enjoys the status of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. To the untrained eye, it yields up its natural wonders gradually, but a visit to the coastal area of western Andalucia is not complete without taking it in.
A place of Marian Worship and the centre of Whitsun Pilgrimage. The focal point of one of Spain’s largest festivals, the Romeria del Rocio. The four day pilgrimage leading up to Whitsun has dispensation to wind its way through the park. Thousands of people come to honour Nuestra Senora del Rocio, a medieval statue with miraculous powers. A village with sand covered streets, where the residents still customarily get around on horseback – hence the hitching posts and where flamenco is in evidence. The fact that this town resembles an old west frontier out post is no accident. The Spaniards who settled in what are now the States of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona mostly came from this part of Spain and took their archaeological style with them. Of note is the Hermitage or Sanctuary of Nuestra Senora de el Rocio, with architectural grouping of one or two storey houses and the grid based urban layout. El Rocio within the Donana National Park should be included as stop over from a visit to the National Park.
Capital of the sierra, this is an attractive town blessed with fresh air. The oldest town hall in the province offers information about the sierra. The Roman ‘Arunda’, where nature has created this fantastic monumental world of ‘la Gruta de las Maravillas’, a guided tour of these marvellous caves – Spain’s largest – will wind 1,200mtr through beautiful chambers with stalactites and stalagmites of incredible natural coloured formations and names such as the Hut, Organ, cathedral, Quail and Twins. The last room is a notorious crowd pleaser, the Chamber of Buttocks. In addition to the twelve caverns there are also six underground lakes, which create stunning visual effects. The Great Lake lies under a 70mtr vaulted ceiling. History has also left some beautiful marks on the town: the Castle Church raised by the Templaries; the Priory Church of the Assumption, work of one Juan de Herrera, and other 15th and 16th century ecclesiastical monuments. Here in Aracena the cobbled street of Calle Pozo de la Nieve, is lined with souvenir shops with fine embroidery.
JABUGO & CUMBRES MAYORES

The visitor is able to go back 5000 years in mining history and at the same time witness at first hand a working mine in action. The gradual stripping away of the rich ore has left a weird moonscape shot through coloured fissures.
