The Alhambra in Granada
The only province in Andalucia where you can swim in the mediterranean in the morning and ski in the Sierra Nevada in the afternoon. The winter resort Pradollano 20 miles (32km)) from Granada city, is open all year round so if skiing is not for you, then choose between Trekking, Mountain biking or horse riding along the many trails and valleys of the Sierra Nevada range.
Alternatively loose yourself in the streets of Granada or gaze in awe at the Moorish Alhambra Palace sitting on top of a hill dominating the city skyline.
Whether its retracing the footsteps of Andalucia’s famous poet Frederico Garcia Lorca or finding the perfect rural retreat, Granadas cities, towns and villages have it all....enjoy!
Here you will be able to experience old traditional Andalucian Tapa’s bars. Other secrets the city has to offer are a variety of splendid churches and renaissance palaces.
Cordoba
This rural province sweeps down from the north where the Sierra Morena mountains dominate, across open countryside to the provincial capital city, Córdoba. The valley with the Rio Quadalquivir running along it’s bottom separates the north and south part of the city.
In the centre of the city the Mezquita stands as a monument to arguably the most exquisite mosque ever built by the Moors. As you make your way towards the Mezquita take a detour through the many narrow streets that make up the old Moorish and Jewish quarters.
Sevilla
To experience Sevilla, Andalucía’s largest city, you have to loose yourself in the boiling pot of Flamenco, culture, fascinating examples of Spanish art and vibrant night life.
The city itself, hot in summer but mild in winter, has numerous Tapa’s and restaurants bars along the narrow streets where you can sample some excellent food.
No visit to Sevilla would be complete without time being spent viewing Seville's Cathedral and the famous fortified palace the Alcazar.
Malaga
Málaga, more than just an arrival and departure point. The old town with it’s narrow village style streets flushed with the scent of jasmine while locals sit chatting about days gone by. As with so many spanish cities the evening is the perfect time to stroll, stop and enjoy drink and a bite to eat while watching the world go by.

Málaga city has a cultural side, museums and galleries to satisfy the traditional and historical visitor. Travel west of the city and out past the airport you enter the tourist areas of Torremolinos, Benalmadina and Fuengirola. These resorts cater for mass tourism and is home to many foreigners who have come to live here.

Further west you will find Marbella and just after the famous port "Puerto Banus" where everything is bigger, better and more expensive!

Head inland to discover different villages such as Mijas, Alora, Ardales and El Burgo all of which have something to offer. A must see is the impressive "El Chorro" gorge located 50km from málaga. The gorge itself, carved out of limestone offers a unique experience in the form of a catwalk which runs the length of the gorge. Please note however, recent reports suggest parts of the walk way are in a state of disrepair.
