Andalucia is the Spain of the imagination, a dreamy, sun-kissed land where passion, poetry, and drama collide. Fearless matadors, fabulous festivals, and foot-stomping flamenco symbolize this emblematic region. Whispering the legacy of a bygone era, crumbling Moorish castles and old Jewish quarters have a subtle seduction.
Ancient mosques and synagogues were replaced with Christian churches after the Reconquest, but the romance of the past remains. Look for swirling Arabesque patterns in Islamic architecture and listen for melancholy notes of Gypsy soul in the strumming of Spanish guitar.
Stroll the enchanting cobblestone streets and bask in courtyards filled with fragrant orange trees. Andalusia is a place of contrasts: snowcapped mountains, lush green river valleys, and wild gorges – stunning backdrops for amazing sights.
From the glorious cathedral of Seville to the magnificent Alhambra palaces in Granada and the Great Mosque of Córdoba, Andalusia has some of the most thrilling monuments in the world.
