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
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 Andalucias 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
Tapas bars. Other secrets the city has to offer are a
variety of splendid churches and renaissance palaces.
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 its 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
To experience Sevilla, Andalucías 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
Tapas 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
Málaga, more than just an arrival and departure point.
The old town with its 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.
