Geology and Mineralogy

Learn to interpret rocks and minerals and uncover the history of how our world was formed.

The geology of Huelva is one of the most important aspects of our natural heritage and one of the most forgotten. Discover the vestiges of the ancient collisions of continents, volcanic eruptions and periods when the sea covered this entire province. Walk on the ancient seabed and observe how the rocks have changed into fascinating formations and minerals.

This geology attracted ancient cultures like the Phoenicians and the Tartessians to these lands looking for minerals formed during the creation of the mountain range of the Sierra Morena. Visit the mines dating back to these times, mines which in turn opened the way for future civilisations to develop one of the most important mines in the peninsula, the Riotinto Mine.

Babel Nature offers guided geology walks at the hands of expert geologists and mining engineers.
