On the basis of the highest resolution images so far obtained of the OB association LH 110, we show that the main exciting source of the HII region, Sk -71 51, is in fact a tight cluster of massive stars consisting of at least 6 components in an area ∼4" wide. Spectroscopic observations allow us to revise the spectral type of the main component (#17) to O2V((f*))+OB, a very rare, hot type. We also classify several other stars associated with N 214C and study the extinction and excitation characteristics of the HII region. Moreover, we obtain BVR photometry and astrometry of 2365 stars and from the corresponding color-magnitude diagram study the stellar content of N 214C and the surrounding LH 110. Furthermore, we discover a striking compact blob of ionized gas in the outer northern part of N 214C. A spherical structure of ∼5", in radius (∼1.3pc), it is split into two lobes by absorbing dust running diametrically through its center. We discuss the possible nature of this object. Description: Table 2 displays the results of a DAOPHOT/ALLSTAR photometry run on NTT/SuSI2 BVR images from the LMC N214 (LHA 120-N 214) region. DAOPHOT internal errors were found to be much smaller than the worse difference of magnitude over comparable plates, which was finally chosen as the error indicator. Table 3 displays the deconvolution results for the Sk-71 51 cluster, using the latest implementation of the MCS deconvolution algorithm (see text and P. Magain, F Courbin, S. Sohy, M. Gillon & G. Letawe, 2005, in prep). File Summary:
