Trip to the Huelva area 2016

Day 1 - we made a brief stop at a bodega, to sample the wares, before visiting El Rocío, the site of perhaps the biggest pilgrimage in Spain

Day 2 - this was the highlight of the trip; a visit to the Rio Tinto mines.

We visited the very comprehensive museum and a small, recently abandoned open-cast mine, before taking a train ride along the banks of the Rio Tinto itself.

Day 3 - we visited the small town of Niebla, which has a very large castle. Then we went to Palos, which was the base for Christopher Columbus when he was getting ready to go voyaging.

Day 4 - we visited the city of Seville and had a boat ride on the river.

Of course it would not be a ´bugs trip without a show one evening!
