Huelva

The province of Huelva is described as the undiscovered jewel of Andalusia.

Its mountain range, its coast, its villages, its landscapes, its culture, its climate and its light make the province of Huelva one of the most spectacular tourism destinations on the Iberian Peninsula.

HUELVA TOURISM

Guadiana river

One of the great rivers of the Iberian Peninsula. Its origins are uncertain; legend has it that its source is the amazing Lagunas de Ruidera lagoons, but the more widespread theory is that the source lies in the high plains of Campos de Montiel in the province of Ciudad Real.

Its name comes from the Arabic, wadi-anas. Its basin has been calculated at 70,000 km2 and it is 818 kilometers long; most of it flows through Spanish territory, with part of it running through neighboring Portugal.

From the Portuguese settlement of Pomarao, it runs down towards the Atlantic joining Portuguese and Spanish shores. On its way it passes through the neighboring towns of Sanlúcar de Guadiana and Alcoutim. Both have castles and they are a pleasure to visit.

Various sporting events are held throughout the year, including the Ascent and Descent by Sail, which takes place in August, and the international canoeing regatta in July.

Ayamonte

An old town on the river Guadiana estuary, with nearly 20,000 inhabitants, a figure that swells in the holiday season.

It is the paradigm of a tourist town for its cultural wealth, its convenient location near Portugal, an enviable artistic heritage, a combination of progress and nature, and is largely unaffected by the influx of tourists.

Strolling round its neighborhoods and streets bathed in the amazing light that floods it is a pleasure that no visitor should deny themselves.

AYUNTAMIENTO DE AYAMONTE

The Algarve

The coastline of the extreme south of Portugal with its endless pine forests, golden sandy beaches, luxurious residential developments, fantastic hotels and more than thirty golf courses, make this region the tourist jewel of Portugal.

Isla Canela Tower

The Torre de Canela is a particularly important construction in the landscape of Isla Canela. Its main military purpose was to defend the coast against the possible invasion of pirates.

It is in an excellent state of conservation, built with square ashlar masonry. It is located in Isla Canela, on the left-hand side of the road that links the town of Ayamonte with the Punta del Moral neighborhood.

The Duque Salt Flats

The Salinas del Duque is a circular path of approximately 6 kilometers located near Ayamonte. This complex of salt marshes is associated with the mouths of the rivers Carreras and Guadiana. The route allows us to do it in two ways, but in both cases we have access to an observatory for birds oriented to the area where they breed and feed.

The natural beauty of the place, formed by a labyrinth of canals, channels, marshes and muddy plains, make this place a must for nature lovers.

The tours on horseback, by bicycle, on foot or sailing in small boats will make us enjoy a unique spectacle of the innumerable species of birds that feed, rest and breed in them. Spoonbills, Flamingos, Terns, Cormorants, Gulls, Snipe, Ospreys and many others will observe us along the way.

Carreras River

The Carreras estuary acts as a natural border to the east of Isla Canela, separating us from Isla Cristina.

In its course between the towns of Ayamonte, Isla Canela and Isla Cristina it forms a natural area called Marismas de Isla Cristina.

The Marshes

This natural site, formed during a long and complex process, stands out for the wide variety of bird species that live, breed and feed in Las Marismas de Isla Cristina.

This spectacle of ornithological diversity of more than 2,000 hectares, close to the municipality of Ayamonte, is a clear example of paradise for lovers of nature, bird watching and hiking.
