What and where is Andalucia?

ANDALUCIA is one of the most touristic regions in the south coast of Spain. It has everything one dreams of, from amazing nature with huge mountain ranges to the sunny coastal beaches. The people are known to be friendly, welcoming and light spirited. 

Spain’s region of Andalucia consists of eight provinces: Cadiz, Cordoba, Jaen, Huelva, Almeria, Malaga, Granada and Seville. They are placed from the south-east to the south-west of the country. 

We will visit the most famous cities:

  • GRANADA

  • SEVILLE: It was founded as the Roman city of Hispalis, During the Muslim rule in Spain, Seville came under the jurisdiction of the Caliphate of Córdoba before becoming the independent Taifa of Seville.

  • MALAGA: The history spans about 2,800 years, making it one of the oldest cities in the world.

  • CORDOBA:  It’s an Iberian and Roman city in ancient times, in the Middle Ages it became the capital of an Islamic caliphate.

  • FARO (Portugal): It is the capital of Algarve, and the third city that receives more visitors by air in Portugal after Lisbon and Oporto. Old town surrounded by the old city walls.

  • island Deserta (Portugal): is an island near Faro. Literally, means Deserted Island. This pretty much describes the island, since there are no people who live on this island permanently. The island is famous for its  beautiful beach and unspoiled nature. It is truly a paradise in the Algarve.
