A city full of light

Setting foot in Huelva is to discover a city where different cultures have left their mark on every square inch. Hop on the ferry to Huelva and discover one of the most history-rich corners of Spain at your own pace.

What to see in Huelva
As we have already mentioned, the traces of the British, who came to Huelva at the end of the 19th century, are still visible in the city. In fact, two of its most striking features have an English accent: we're talking about the romantic Rio Tinto Limited Company dock and the Queen Victoria working class quarter, which will take you back to Victorian England.

Another place where you can learn about Huelva's important role in history is the Santa María de La Rábida monastery. Christopher Columbus spent a few nights there when he was preparing his plans. Finally, don't forget to stroll along the Paseo Marítimo, the seafront promenade, with its spectacular views of the estuary.

What to do in Huelva
Activities that let you travel back in time are also on offer in Huelva. A highly recommended visit is to the Muelle de las Carabelas quay, to see three replicas of the ships that crossed the ocean more than half a century ago.
Taking your car on the ferry to Huelva is a great option if you want to visit the impressive Rio Tinto Mining Museum or the imposing Niebla Castle.
