As the centre of Huelva is relatively small, you can walk between the main sights. It is worth either finding a hotel with its own parking or paying for a car park - which are well-signposted - rather than parking your car on the street, since there is widespread theft. The central area has strictly controlled parking with metered areas. Be careful not to park in a no-parking zone since your car may get towed away by the "grua" (crane).
Taxi ranks are on Calle Plus Ultra near the Iglesia de la Concepción in the centre and outside the railway station. A city cab firm is Teletaxi, Tel: 959 25 00 22.
