Here is our latest chillout destination to help you escape the dreary autumn weather we can get in the UK. After Cyprus, Turkey and Croatia we have a true gem in Huelva in the south of Spain. Boasting 300 days of sunshine and average temperatures throughout the year of 20 degrees this is a great place to get away to, plus using Faro as our arrival airport we have so many options from UK airports and it’s just an 80 minute transfer to your hotel and a week of relaxation.
Huelva isn’t as well-known as some of the other provincial capitals of the region, but it has a pleasant centre with many pretty plazas, absorbing historical monuments and, as you'd expect from a city with a bustling port, a wealth of seafood bars and restaurants.
It was the mineral wealth of the area north of Huelva brought Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans who, along with the later arrivals of the Moors, left their archaeological mark on the city. Visit the Museo de Huelva to see evidence of their stay in Huelva. Located on the mouth of the Odiel and Tinto estuary, Huelva has been an important port since the Phoenicians established it as a major trading post. Badly damaged in the 1755 Lisbon earthquake, Huelva may lack some of the architectural splendour of Seville but it does possess, however, several notable churches, like the oldest one in the city, the Iglesia de San Pedro, and the Catedral de la Merced, with a magnificent Baroque façade. The hub of the city centre today is the palm-lined square, the Plaza de las Monjas, close to the pedestrianized shopping district, along the streets of Concepción to Berdigón. The centre is relatively compact so you can see the sights without having to hop on a bus, although you may want to for the Sanctuario de la Cinta, located 3km out of town.
