Coastal landscapes

Huelva is, like Cadiz, a sample of landscape whose evolution is marked by man’s action as well as that of nature. But here there is a different combination. The mining tradition of the areas, with the Riotinto mines, has shaped a territory marked by the industrial revolution under its hardest face (mineral load platforms, industrial pollution), in which there are remediation projects; nature is also a bit aggressive, with some rivers with a slightly higher than normal acidity due to natural reasons. By contrast, the dunes in the coast, with large pinewoods (partly occupied by nursery cultivations) are a more pleasant face.
