If you want to see beautiful scenery, you should go to Parque Natural de las Marismas de Isla Cristina and admire its flora and fauna.

You can rent a bus in Huelva for trip in the city or in Huelva Province. There are too many tourism options in Huelva to list them all, but we’ve selected a few of the best, such as the route goes through La Plaza del Punto, with its monument to Fandango, and continues into El Barrio Obrero (The Workers’ Neighborhood). Another route takes you through Alameda Sundheim, which was a colonial residence for haute bourgeoisie at the end of the 19th century and is also where the Velodrome was raised, which was the first soccer field in Spain. La Plaza de las Mojas is one of the oldest plazas in the city, is an important meeting place, and is home to El Convento de las Agustinas, with its Mudejar Patio, the Bank of Spain, and La Iglesia de la Milagrosa (The Miraculous Church), one of the few remaining examples of neo-gothic architecture in the province.
The bike lane that goes from the city of Huelva to Punta Umbría, also passing through Playa La Bota, is a good trip to make on bicycle. Those who wish to rent bikes can choose from any number of bike rental companies, such as Sol Bicis, Ciclos León, or Enbizi, which also offer lists of possible tours.
For a very special tour, we recommend going on a canoe to Punta Umbría, or in the boat that crosses the river, the estuaries, and crosses through El Parque Natural Marismas del Odiel.

This is one of the symbols of Huelva; it’s dedicated to Christopher Columbus and is located at the confluence of the Odiel and Tinto Rivers. The figure of Columbus stands upon a pedestal that has bas reliefs representing the Aztec, Incan, Mayan, and Christian cultures along with some commemorative plaques. Altogether, the monument is 37 meters (120 feet) tall. This monument was done in the cubist style by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1929.
Built in the classic-style at the beginning of the twentieth century, this building is located on Mora Claros Street, which is one of the pedestrian streets in downtown Huelva. The décor is made of gypsum and plaster of Paris, and the balconies are glazed with a wrought iron structure. This beautiful building is a marvel to behold. On the upper floor, which is well-lit thanks to a glass dome, the entire interior is in the modernist style and is decorated with glazed tiles and plasterwork of different designs.
A sumptuous and emblematic building erected at the turn of the twentieth century on Puerto Street, near Mora Claros Palace. It features two huge towers on the sides, beautiful glazed balconies that jut out to form a semicircle. This building could be described as having a classical style with touches of modernism and influences from French art nouveau.
Situated on De los Marismeños Street, this is an ideal place for enjoying a fresh beer with a good plate of Huelva shrimp at a very decent price. Chow down on a scrumptious shrimp salad or enjoy any of the other house specialties, such as prawns, salted tuna, tuna roe (similar to caviar), ham, or lobster.
The production line entered service in 1967. This refinery, the port facilities of which store and distribute gasoline, butane, propane, diesel, and asphalt, occupies an area of 2.4 million square meters (26 million square feet). It’s colossal! Visit it in the late afternoon and as night falls you’ll be in for a real treat. Tall smokestacks shoot fire heavenward, metal structures are illuminated by thousands of lights, and a veritable sea of cement makes visitors feel tiny in comparison.
