... let's explore Huelva a bit more. The city is built around a hill with a semi-abandoned park at the top with a big concrete bridge looping around the top. Not exactly competing with Sevilla's Plaza de Espana or Granada's Alhambra. But as I wander around downtown I bit more, I do get to liking the place a bit more.
