Detailed Description

This route will allow you to understand the story and anecdotes of the adventure carried out by Christopher Columbus, who started the Discovery of New World achievement from the old Port of Palos. We will go through all the historical places Columbus visited on his mission for resources to set sail to America.

On the other hand, we will look at the British heritage in Huelva, starting at the place where all the minerals extracted at Riotinto mines were sent by railway up to the imposing Tinto Wharf, built by one of Eiffel disciples for the Riotinto Limited Company in order to ship the minerals from there.

Huelva and its surroundings have witnessed many civilizations and historical events which have taken place here throughout history. The Discovery of America in 1492 and the heritage generated with the arrival of thousands of British in the mining region in the mid 19th century are probably the events which have left the biggest impression on Huelva’s people and its historical architecture as well as on the Columbian sites: La Rábida, Palos de la Frontera and Moguer.
