Huelva, the Andalusia least known…
Situated in the south west corner of Spain, Huelva forms part of the region of Andalusia which finds itself bounded to the north by the province of Badajoz, to the south by the Atlantic Ocean, to the east by Seville and to the west by Portugal.
It can lay claim to more the 300 days of sunshine per year, making it one of the most temperate climates out of all the Spanish provinces and one that receives the most hours of sunshine, more than 3000 hours.
The discovery of America was conceived in Huelva, in the Monastery of La Rábida. Visiting its walls transports the past as well as embarking on the caravels of Columbus, replicas of which Christopher Columbus used in his discovery adventure.
The province of Huelva also offers countless possibilities for activities related to nature and the environment, such as discovering the Doñana National Park or crossing the Aracena Natural Park and Aroche peaks, where you can visit Iberian ham dryers and enjoy of a rural lunch in the forest of cork oaks tasting the typical products of this land.
We can not forget the traditions of this beautiful land that have their maximum expression in the Romería del Rocío, an annual pilgrimage that venerates the Virgen del Rocío and that has its goal in the hermitage of the same name, in Almonte.
