The province of Huelva stretches from the Portuguese border to Sevilla.
It is disconnected and distant and hardly deserves its reputation as the poor relation of its glamorous neighbour.
However, it boasts one of the greatest historical events which is the discovery of America.
In 1492 Christopher Colombus set off from Huelva on his epic voyage of discovery.
In addition you will also find the renowned Parque Nacional de Doñana which comprises of three different ecosystems: marshes, salt flats and moving sand dunes.
It is the largest road less area in Western Europe.
The relationship between man and nature is epitomised in this natural reserve and is evident when you visit. This 500 sq. km reserve is used by 80% of Europe’s migratory birds.
A short drive further north in the Western sector of Sierra Morena is located a huge, verdant hill country called Parque Natural de la Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche.
This is perfect walking country with numerous streams and reservoirs scattered with sturdy white villages.
