Travelling and Touring Andalucia

 

There is much more to do in Andalucia than just sit on the beach, even though that is not a bad way to pass a holiday if you want.

Our mission is to bring you the finest of everything the region has to offer, so you can have a truly memorable experience.

 

Click here for our "Top 10" lists, compiled using the insider knowledge enjoyed only by those who live here and have a in-depth knowledge of its prettiest towns, most buzzing cities and unspoiled countryside, will ensure you get the best out of your holiday in southern Spain.

 

We spotlight the must-sees and can't-misses of all aspects - food, culture, history, festivals, activities and nature - not forgetting one of Andalucia's top attractions: its coastline.

 

In a land of culture, history, fiestas, nature areas and excellent food. You’ll be able to visit everything from outstanding monuments to a wide variety of different natural landscapes… and you'll have the chance to take part in several unique popular events and sample a range of delicious gastronomic products.

One way to discover the culture of Andalusia is by exploring the sites which have been awarded the UNESCO World Heritage designation. In Granada, you’ll see the Alhambra palace, the Generalife gardens and the mediaeval Albaicín neighbourhood; in Cordoba, its historic centre with the great Mosque; in Seville, the cathedral, the Alcázar palace and the Indies Archive; and in Jaén, the monumental sites of Úbeda and Baeza.

You’ll also be able to experience festivals such as Easter Week, the Carnival in Cadiz, the Rocío pilgrimage in Huelva and the April Fair in Seville. You'll find a variety of natural landscapes which range from the beaches of the Costa del Sol, Costa de la Luz and Almería to the extensive olive groves of Jaén. You can visit the Doñana National Park –also declared a World Heritage Site–, or go skiing in the Sierra Nevada ski resort.

Finally, remember that Andalusia has a thousand different flavours waiting to be tried. From the sherries of Jerez (Cadiz) and Montilla – Moriles (Cordoba), to the classic platters of fresh fried fish known as “pescaíto frito” from Cadiz and Malaga, cured ham from Huelva and Cordoba, olive oil, and other such typical dishes as gazpacho and “salmorejo” (a kind of thicker gazpacho).
