The city of Huelva offers visitors a wide variety and wealth of tourist and heritage resources.

Over the centuries, Huelva has witnessed the passage of numerous civilisations that have left an important mark on the city's archaeological and industrial heritage: from the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Muslims... to the English presence at the end of the 19th century.

Points of Interest

Muelle de las Carabelas

Just 11 kilometres from the city of Huelva you can find Muelle de las Carabelas (the Carabela's dock). Here you can visit the replicas of Christopher Columbus' three caravels (the Pinta, the Niña and the Santa María).


La Rabida Monastery

Another must-see in Huelva is the Monastery of La Rábida. It is very close to the Muelle de las Carabelas, so I recommend that you take advantage of your visit to see this beautiful monastery. Christopher Columbus stayed here while he was organising his project to set sail for the New World.


La Merced Cathedral

Another obligatory stop in the centre of Huelva is the Catedral of La Merced. It is somewhat different from the classic image of this type of temple, as it is made up of a convent and a church. Halfway between colonial and baroque style, this 17th century building preserves several altarpieces and carvings from the 18th century that deserve special attention.


Tinto Wharf

This historic Tinto Wharf is the old wharf for material from the Minas of Riotinto deposits, exploited by the British mining company "Rio Tinto Company Limited". It was built at the end of the 19th century on the river Odiel.
