LaTeX2HTML (by default) processes from within a subdirectory of the directory
where your source resides, so the relative path is out by a level.

Simply create a symbolic link:  ln -s ../Figuras ./Figuras
so that the same relative path will find the correct directory for figures
whether processed by either LaTeX or LaTeX2HTML.

Hope this helps,
