King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain were in Huelva today to undertake a handful of engagements. The Spanish Royal Couple spent Valentine’s Day visiting the historical city and then had fun during an outdoor engagement at the Doñana National Park.
The Natural Area of Doñana, constituted by the National Park and the Natural Park of Doñana, is located in the western end of Andalusia with territory in the provinces of Huelva, Seville and Cádiz.
It’s known for its wetlands, migratory birds, pine forests and shifting coastal dunes. In the park, Palacio del Acebron is a 20th-century palace, home to the national park visitor centre. Nearby, El Rocío Hermitage is a religious sanctuary dating from the 13th century. On the coast, Playa de Matalascañas has a seafront promenade lined with bars and eateries.
King and Queen arrived via a minibus with Park authorities and their staff.
Felipe and Letizia toured the Doñana National Park, mosaic of ecosystems that house unique biodiversity in Europe.
The Doñana National Park at Salvador Távora Theater in Huelva holds extraordinary importance as a place of passage, breeding and wintering for thousands of European and African birds.
Don Felipe and Doña Letizia began their visit at the Biological Station, from where they moved to the area of Vera del Puntal, where they observed the fauna of the place through terrestrial telescopes.
Felipe and Letizia were extremely enjoying the outing that came on a special day.
From there, they moved in a collective off-road vehicle, towards the Center of the Ansares, wherefrom the top of the dune they could observe the different ecosystems of the Park. The tour ended at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, from where they moved aboard the “La Olga” barge, towards Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
This year, Park is marking its 50th anniversary.
