The birthplace of flamenco and bullfighting, Spain’s seductive southernmost region has a rich culture that has defined the perception of Spanish lifestyle throughout the world.
For centuries, the region was under Muslim rule, a fact most evident in Granada’s Alhambra palace – arguably one of Europe’s most impressive historical landmarks. Seville, the setting for Bizet's Carmen, Rossini's The Barber of Seville, Beethoven's Fidelio, Mozart's Don Giovanni and The Marriage of Figaro, has to this day remained the greatest city in the south of Spain. Charming Cordoba is home to the Mezquita, the grandest and most beautiful mosque ever constructed by the Moors in Spain.
Outside its historic cities, Andalusia features pristine beaches, pleasant landscapes, charming small towns and colorful fiestas. And let’s not forget the cuisine: fresh seafood, tasty tapas, temperamental wine, aged jamón and queso.
