Andalucia is a fascinating place for its spectacular Moorish
monuments, beautiful white hill towns, sparkling blue coast
and natural beauty of its mountainous country.
Andalucia is made up of eight provinces, all of which have
their own unique culture and traditions. Seville and Malaga
battle it out to be the main cities in Andalucia, but it is
Granada and Cordoba with their Alhambra and Grand
Mosque that are more magnificent.

The Moors were
a mixed race of Berbers and Arabs that occupied Spain (Al-Andalus)
for almost eight hundred years. They developed the most sophisticated
civilization in the Middle Ages, centered in Seville, Cordoba
and Granada. Every city, town and village, is a wonderful
mixture of Christian and Muslim influence. Granada preserves
beautiful Moorish monuments, the Alhambra palace, being the
largest and most sensual building in Europe. Seville boasts
the most spectacular of all Gothic cathedrals and largest
church in the world.
The white towns surrounding Ronda, offer an unspoiled view
into Andalucian life with their surrounding natural beauty,
delicious home-cooking and stunning appearance-clustered beneath
Moorish/Christian castles and churches.
The mountains in the Sierra Nevada and Sierra Morena offer
good trekking and skiing, while the coast between Tarifa and
Cadiz on the Atlantic has some of the Best beaches in Spain.
Tarifa itself, with its high powered wind, is the Best spot
for surfing and wind surfing in Spain.
You may wish to avoid the
most developed resort areas on the Costa del Sol such as
Torremolinos and Benalmadena (although they are unrivalled
for family holidays with well developed facilities and amenities),
as it is hard to find peace and natural beauty,
without paying a high price. But Marbella and the exclusive
Puerto Banus can offer the most sumptious luxury at very affordable
Finally, Spain’s largest
and most impressive nature reserve, Coto Donana, can be
found near Cadiz.
Although unemployment in the province is the highest in Spain
(about 20%), it is still known as one of the most high-spirited
regions of Spain as it is home to flamenco dancing, bullfighting
and a gigantic April carnival (Semana Santa).
