ANDALUCIA not ANDALUSIA

Many great cultures have step at the Andalucia region, that’s the reason of its contrasts.

What fascinate me from here is the Andalucia people who are as warm and friendly as those the traveller would find at home. (Well they adopted me when I arrived lol)

The rich nature in Andalucia offers the traveller snow (Sierra Nevada) and sea, mountains and plains, cities and towns, natural parks, and much more.

Rafael de Leon wrote once:

Los suspiros son aire y van al aire
las lágrimas son agua y van al mar.

He wrote about Andalucia and its people

Do not miss!!!

Looking for beaches?
Cadiz area (Azahara de los atunes, Conil de la frontera, Barbate de Franco, Tarifa ?.) and Almeria area (Cabo de Gata)

Looking for monumental cities with culture and history?
Granada (of course) specially on the 3rd may, Sevilla in April or May for the Easter and Feria experience, Cordoba in May with all the different festivals. And the no so famous Ronda (M?laga), Antequera (M?laga) a non mass tourist spot, Medina Sidonia and Arcos de la Frontera in Cadiz

Looking for nature experience?
Sierra de Cazorla (Jaen), Coto de Do?ana in Huelva, Grazalema in Cadiz ?.

The most visited but less enjoyed (Do not know why?) Malaga festival (3rd week of august), Marbella (jejeje obviously) feria on the 2nd week of June

Well this are my favourite spots in Andalucia, what can I say.

Sorry if a few are not here....

How to see the page!!

In my general tips I have included the 8 provinces that are in Andalucia (most of them have own and detail separate page)
Almeria
Cadiz
Cordoba
Granada
Huelva
Jaen
Malaga
Seville

Also I have included, some special places (as La Alhambra ) that deserve an extra visit....

In Must see activities are general places, as all Andalucia coasts, special regions as Las Alpujarras or Natural spaces...

On the Beaten path there are many little villages that have individual pages here in VT, and deserve a visit ...

And places you should not miss in your visit to Andalucia
