I really enjoyed sitting on the plaza chair with a take away coffee and seeing my kid playing around. It’s just a nice place for a little break of a holiday tiredness.

This is a small plaza in the centre of Huelva. Lots of restaurants, some with seats outdoors and the famous Columbus statue. Not a lot of shops.

There is also the statue of Cristobal Colan and it is in the middle of the city. You can go and see anywhere you want from here. There are many cafes and restaurants around it.

This square has some touristic spots to see: - Small Fountain - Nice banks to look at other pedestrians passing by - Statue of Cristobal Colon and for sure, some beautiful buildings around the square in typical Andalucian style.

This square is lovely, the heart of Huelva. Really traditional Spanish plaza. Everyone congregates in the evening when the sun has gone down. There is children playing together and elderly people chatting. Even if you you pass through it is a really nice atmosphere.
