Huelva, the name of a province and of a seaport town of Andalusia in Spain. The province, which is occupied in the north by branches of the Sierra Morena, is alluvial, and fertile in the south, and is rich in minerals, especially in copper, the working of which has been greatly developed of late. The town, which is 60 miles S.W. of Seville, is well built, and has some good squares, and has a brisk trade, especially in copper and other minerals, as well as in fruits and wanes. Industries connected with shipping are also carried on. The value of the exports exceeds £5,000,000. A railway unites Huelva to Seville.
