Huelva is a Spanish city and municipality, capital of the homonymous province, located in the autonomous community of Andalusia. It is located at the confluence of the Tinto and Odiel rivers, in the so-called Ría del Tinto and Ría del Odiel.The city has been a meeting point for different cultures and civilizations. Being the capital of the province, it also houses the main public services in the area, both provincial, regional and state.

The name of the city of Huelva comes from the ancient Onuba that appears as Ὄνοβα in the Greek sources and as Onuba or Onuba Aestuaria in the Latin ones. The term comes from one of the pre-Roman languages of the peninsula and its meaning is unknown, although the presence of a suffix -oba or -uba is detected in it, which also appears in other place names such as Ossonoba, Corduba or Salduba.

The municipality of Huelva is located in what is known as the flat land area or the great coastal plain belonging to the Betic Depression in an area where there are abundant formations of marshes, pipes, lagoons, estuaries, along with areas of sand. It is made up mainly of very fine materials, normally clays, and exposed to both continental and maritime dynamics with materials not yet very consolidated. Its location at the confluence and mouth of the Tinto and Odiel rivers, the two most important and emblematic of the entire province, is important. The Tinto river, which is born in the eastern sierra of Andévalo, is a dead river due to the large amount of dissolved minerals that carry its waters, product of the intense activity that took place in the Riotinto mining basin, located to the north; In spite of everything, when it reaches the city limits, the dynamics of the river changes due to the influence of the water that enters from the Atlantic. Within the urban nucleus, slopes or tertiary formations consisting of mounds of clayey earth and isolated by flat terrain covered with Mediterranean vegetation stand out as geological formation.
