La Palma del Condado Municipality

The location of La Palma, close to the provincial capitals of Huelva (42 km) and Seville (55 km), allows it to be connected to the Doñana National Park, the village of El Rocío and the beautiful beaches of the Costa de la Light, which makes it a strategic natural and healthy enclave. The main provincial communication routes pass through our municipality, both by road and by train or air, given the proximity to the airports of Seville and Faro. Thus, La Palma del Condado is a must-see in the province of Huelva due to its easy and fast accessibility.

La Palma is surrounded by a very diverse cultural and natural heritage that makes it an extraordinary strategic enclave. The Doñana National Park must be highlighted, a biological treasure of recognized international importance and a World Heritage Site. The Doñana natural complex is historically linked to El Rocío and its pilgrimage, which annually attracts more than a million people. Another of the outstanding geographical points is the Mining Basin, “Heart of Huelva”, where the Tinto River bathes its Martian secrets in red through a route of lost towns that finds its summit in the impressive Corta Atalaya, the open-pit mine largest in Europe, of overwhelming beauty. Advancing towards the northern mountains we reach Aracena, a place that hides an inner beauty and has as fundamental references the acorn-fed Iberian pig and the Grotto of Wonders, a prodigy of nature. Finally, the Columbian Places offer the traveler the whiteness of the streets of Moguer, permeated by the literature of its universal poet, Juan Ramón Jiménez, and a journey through time to investigate the discovery of America, a great milestone in history from Spain.
