The Light in Huelva
 
When tourists are asked what impresses them most in this province, one of the parameters they usually point at is the light.
 
But this light not only colours Huelva’s landscapes, it also shows the extraordinary generosity of the sun towards this province, which permits its inhabitants to live and enjoy the privileged nature in all its splendour, the infinite beaches, giving them a calm and mild view of all things human, with the optimism of an especially healthy way of life.
 
The climate is very agreeable; temperatures are mild, softened by the Atlantic Ocean that bathes the coast from Ayamonte to Doñana, for more than 120 kilometres. Average annual temperature is 18º, January being the coldest month with 12º and August the warmest with 25º. There is almost no rainfall during the greater part of the year.
 
Evolution of the economic circumstances and the different cultures created an extraordinary rich and exquisite gastronomy. Diversity is the dominant characteristic, as each region, each village has its own specialities, although ham and seafood play the leading role at the table in our province.
The Coast is of course an area of rich fishing tradition, and gastronomy is based on fish and seafood. Fishing harbours such as Isla Cristina, Huelva, El Rompido, Ayamonte, Lepe or Punta Umbría have insurmountable seafood such as the langoustine, or the very peculiar white shrimp from Huelva, molluscs like the “coquina” a very fine local clam and the chirla, a small mussel; fish such as tuna, angler fish, sea bass and the very popular member of the cephalopods, the “choco”.
 
The Beaches of Huelva
 
The ocean is welcoming with golden sand beaches that have been declared by the Health Authorities “appropriate for swimming, high quality”; these conditions are present during the whole year, with generally only a moderate swell.
 
The History of Cadiz
 
Cadiz has an ancient history. The Tarshish and Phoenicians visited these lands more than three thousand years ago. It was here that they built the old “Gadir” ( Cadiz ) around 1,100 B.C., making it the oldest capital in the West. The Romans and the Visigoths also left their marks here. After 711, it was ruled by the Muslims until Alfonso X “The Wise” reconquered it in the middle of the 13th century and it became part of the Kingdom of Castilla.
 
The 18th century, Cadiz’s “Golden Century” was dominated by the growth of overseas trade, giving the city its cosmopolitan character and introducing new liberal ideas and opening the door for democracy which came to fruition with the drafting of the constitution in 1812.
 
The Art & Culture of Cadiz
 
The province has over 30 castles and fortresses, many of which are in a good state of repair.
 
As far as paintings are concerned, examples of works by El Greco, Murillo, Zurbarán and Goya can be found in many of the province’s churches and museums.
 
  • Leatherwork that is based in Ubrique as well as the neighbouring towns of Prado del Rey and Villamartín.
  • Jerez for its barrels and other items used in the wineries, together with harnesses and saddles for horses.
  • The baskets and espadrilles typical of Torre Alháquime and the crochet work of Paterna.
  • Ceramics from Arcos and Conil.
  • Handmade furniture in Prado del Rey and Benamahoma.
  • The typical dolls of Chiclana, where there is a permanent exhibition dedicated to the best examples of this craft.
  • Cadiz’s cuisine is influenced more than anything by the province’s wines and by the wide selection of locally caught fresh fish: gilt-head bream, sea bream, sea bass etc, as well as the shell fish: prawns, Norway lobsters, crab claws, sea snails …. and the famous king prawns from Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
  • The confectionery and cakes are delicious and have been clearly influenced by the Arabs and by the nuns in the local convents. Tocino de cielo (pudding made with egg yolk and syrup), turrón (Spanish nougat), alfajores , traditional Arab pastries from Medina Sidonia, turrón and fritters from Cadiz and the famous pestiños (honey coated fritters), which are typically served at Christmas throughout the province, are all mouth watering.
 
Anyone who comes to the province should visit the impressive wineries in Jerez, El Puerto de Santa María, Sanlúcar, or Chiclana, where these exquisite wines, such as fino, manzanilla, muscatel, as well as a Jerez or sherry, which has become Spain’s ambassador worldwide. You should contact each winery’s public relations department prior to planning a visit.
 
The province boosts a wide variety of natural spaces of great diversity and exceptional ecological value. These natural surroundings have been respected and preserved and include areas of marshland, threatened types of fauna and coastal sectors that are still untouched.
Without doubt one of the province’s principal natural resources is its wide range of beaches, with white fine sand and transparent water.
 
Every year, the European Blue Flag is awarded to many of them in recognition of their high quality. There are a total of 138 km of beaches.
 
Thanks to its climate and natural conditions, this province is ideal for sport lovers. Along the 260 km of coastline: sailing, with important regattas organised throughout the year, particularly in the Bay of Cadiz , where the capital hosted the 2000 Tall Ships Race.
The mountain areas are the perfect setting for gliding, caving, mountain biking…and all other mountain sports. Algodonales was the venue for the 2001 World Aerial Games.
 
In Jerez , the emphasis is on the Formula 1 Grand Prix and the Moto GP.
 
Hunting abounds, with more than 60 game reserves scattered throughout the whole province.
 
The province boasts internationally renowned golf courses, such as the Valderrama Golf Club, the venue for the 1997 RYDER CUP, or the Montecastillo Club which has hosted the VOLVO MASTERS on various occasions.
 
In 2003, the Bay of Cadiz was the venue for the World Olympic Sailing Championships, organised by the Cadiz Provincial Council through MUNDOVELA.
