More than three thousand years of history and an important role in the conquering of the Americas have left Huelva with a rich cultural heritage. Learn all about it on this panoramic city tour.
Huelva Guided City Tour Itinerary
After being picked up from your hotel at 9:45 am, you'll board a comfortable bus and embark on your guided tour of Huelva. The route will take you on a panoramic tour of the city's main places of interest. Your local tour guide will point out Queen Victoria district, an unusual neighbourhood of homes built in English style at the start of the 20th century to house miners working for Rio Tinto, a British mining company.
Discover Huelva Cathedral, on the site of the former chapel of the ancient Convent of La Merced, built in the 17th century under the orders of the Duke of Medina Sidonia. Still attached to the cathedral is the old convent building, which, throughout its history, has also acted a hospital. Today it is home to the central campus of the University of Huelva.
Your guided city tour will then take you to see Casa Colón, a symbol of the city's industrial and colonial heritage. Named after Christopher Columbus, the 19th century building was built as a hotel for Rio Tinto workers. Nowadays, it is a congressional palace and hosts the Huelva Ibero-American Film Festival.
Reaching the historic centre of Huelva, your bus tour will come to an end and you'll have free time to explore on foot and get to know the city at your own pace. In this area you'll find the Town Hall, the Plaza de las Monjas and the Baroque-Mudejar style Iglesia de San Pedro, the oldest church in the city and home to a number of important sculptures.
The old town is also home to the Gran Teatro, Huelva's main theatre, and the Palacio de las Conchas, both impressive Neoclassical-style buildings. If you wander towards the south of the city, through its beautiful parks and gardens, you'll reach the old Tinto docks. This historic pier was formerly used to transport mining materials, and is today popular for fishing or simply for enjoying a stroll along the picturesque riverside.
At the end of the tour, you'll be dropped back off at the original departure points at around 2:45 pm.
When making your reservation, you'll be asked to select your preferred meeting point for this tour of Huelva: Hotel Senator Huelva, Hotel Exe Tartessos or Hotel Luz Huelva.
