is one of the seventeen autonomous regions of Spain
. It is located at the extreme South part of the Iberian Peninsula and bordered by both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.
When we speak about Andalusia, we have to recall the heritage from its eclectic past. Dominated by Muslims and then recovered by Christians over several centuries, Andalusia is a land of sharing, of syncretism, where the best of cultures has mixed. This emulation can be seen in architecture. Indeed, monuments such as the Alhambra
, the Giralda
or the Cathedral-mosque of Cordoba
are good examples. Those who like cultural tourism will enjoy wandering in this region.
But Andalusia is also rich of its landscapes and of its nature. The beaches are gorgeous and the sun is almost always present. You could rent a house
for a weekend
or for a short stay in this environment. Otherwise, there are Bed and breakfasts
to welcome you.
Sportspersons could benefit from Andalusia’s broad opening on the sea to practice kitesurf, windsurf or other sea sports. It is also possible to play golf thanks to beautiful and numerous golf courses, or to practice rock-climbing in the sierras. Every time will be an exceptional experience.
Therefore, Andalusia is the ideal place to spend southern holidays
full of sun.
