It was constituted as a province in the administrative division of 1833, conforming with territories until then attached to the former province of Extremadura and the Kingdom of Seville.

Its economy is dominated by the tertiary sector (57% of GDP) that includes tourism. The secondary sector has a greater relative weight than in the rest of Andalusia due to the important chemical activity, mainly linked to mining, and the La Rábida refinery. Regarding the primary sector, fishing stands out with one of the most important fishing fleets in Spain and the new forced agriculture under plastic. Also important is the pig breeding of Iberian montanera breed, highlighting the DO Jamón de Huelva.

The province has a multitude of protected areas, including the Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park and Doñana National Park, considered the largest ecological reserve in Europe.

As for the capital, it is located in the so-called "Tierra llana", at the confluence of the Tinto and Odiel rivers. Throughout history it has been a meeting point of different cultures and civilizations as tartessos and Phoenicians in its beginnings.

According to the INN of 2007, Huelva has 146.173 inhabitants with a large population growth experienced as a result of industrial development.
