“Columbus' Journey”

La Rabida Monastery
Ranked #2 of 42 things to do in Huelva
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 19, 2017 via mobile

The monastery and grounds outside are really nice with plenty of info. The highlight was learning about Columbus' stay here before his journey to the Americas.

Lovely place to visit even if you are not religious.The grounds leading up to the monastery were well kept and perfect for a picnic. There is a small restaurant on site for coffee and a snack.The monastery is well worth an hour to wander around.Lots of organised groups visit so an early or late visit may be best. Check the opening times. Nearby is the botanical gardens.

We just managed to grab half an hour here before it closed at 1pm. Summer hours are 10-1 (10.45 Sundays) and 4-7, closed on Mondays. Entrance price 3€. Leaflet in English describing the rooms (contact me if you would like one).
30 minutes did not do this historical place justice, so plan your journey times.

Lots of places in Spain claim a connection with Columbus.,,,usually by allegedly having some of his bones! Columbus actually stayed here and planned his voyages to "India" with the monks while awaiting funding from Ferdinand and Isabella. The tours are excellent with clear descriptions of the various historic events that took place. They also have models of his ships, which were frail and tiny by today's standards. Well worth seeing.

Lovely site, the ground leading up to the monastery were well kept and perfect for a little picnic. There is a little restaurant on site and separate toilets. It was 2 euros per person to gain admittance to the monastery and well worth it for a couple of hours looking through this historical site. Lots of organised groups there when we visited so it could get a little congested at times but plenty of parking. there is a botanical gardens nearby also
