Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.From the westernmost foothills of Sierra Morena to the Atlantic coast, travellers exploring the province of Huelva will enjoy bountiful and delicate natural landscapes beneath bright blue skies. The mountain climate is warm and mild, and tempers the high summer temperatures and the rigours of winter. The centre –warmer and drier– is cooled in the evening by sea breezes. The temperate climate on the coast is perfect for enjoying the sun and the sea all year round, in a landscape dotted with inviting white villages, equipped with all modern amenities. At the end of the Middle Ages, the Atlantic ports in Huelva experienced a period of great splendour. Christopher Columbus’ first expedition set sail for the New World from the dock of Palos de la Frontera in 1492. Columbus’ heroic deed marked a watershed in Huelva’s history. Products from the sea such as mackerel, sea bass, grouper, tuna, white prawns, langoustines and cockles enable the traveller to sample such delicious dishes as squid prepared in a whole range of styles, skate with red pepper, swordfish with vinaigrette or tuna belly and a wide variety of canned and potted seafood. Inland, pork-based produce and delicious wild mushrooms from the mountains make this excellent cuisine justly famous.
