525th anniversary of the meeting between two worlds. Huelva - America
Few events have been more significant in the history of humanity than the arrival of Christopher Columbus to America in 1492. The link between Huelva and America transcends the historic difficulty of Columbus' first journey, which resulted in him becoming a part of collective memory for all mankind. As the 525th anniversary nears, the Province of Huelva and the Lugares Colombinos are restating their American vocation and desire to be the point of cultural, economic, academic and institutional entry for the Ibero-American countries with which the area has shared a common history for centuries. Specific activities (gastronomy events, handicraft fairs, events in symbolic places) and initiatives will be hosted to promote the Lugares Colombinos in celebration of the 525th anniversary of this great discovery.
