Huelva Information


Huelva is seafring city , characterised by the wide estuary which becomes the River Odiel. Andalusian architecture may be admired in the Church of La Concepción or the large Church of San Pedro, which has a beautiful tower and opens onto some of the most pleasant areas of the city, such as the Boulevard of Palmeras de Santa Fe. The Cathedral of La Merced, dating from the 18th century, is modest in size but harmonious in style. Next to it is the charming and shady Las Monjas Square and the fine viewpoint the peaceful Conquero, from which we look down onto the new, colorful Bullring and the Odiel Marshlands and which takes us to the Sanctuary of the patron saint Virgen de la Cinta, a white construction built in the Mudéjar style.

A visit to Huelva must include its Provincial Museum, where the eventful history of the area may be traced from the Tartessians to the paintings of Vázquez Díaz, and the restored Great Theatre.

This city, so full of light, also features an impressive openair Sculpture Museum, which exhibits the work of many Spain's finest contemporary sculptors. The Casa Colón (the House of Christopher Columbus), a building of modern design, is a conference centre. Opposite the Odiel stands the colossal Monument to the Faith of Discovery (1929) by the North American sculptor, Gertrudis V. Withney.
