Look what you can see in Andalusia

Spain means Andalusia. Everything what people think about this country comes from this region: siesta, tapas, gazpacho, flamenco, bullfights. At the same time it is so much more.

South of Spain is practically the best destination that you can choose its people, its climate, its beaches and its monuments are strong incentives to motivate. It counts actually with 8 provinces (Huelva, Cádiz, Sevilla, Málaga, Córdoba, Jaén, Granada, Almería) with 8 capitals and each one of them is completely different to the other. We are sure that at the beginning it is difficult to decide, but don’t worry! You have taken the right decision.

At the moment my aim is to give a taste of the essentials of Andalusia. Show you more and more reason through my photos to come here. You can use this list as a travel itinerary as well, of course it depends on your time and interest.

Cordoba

the city of Spain’s top surviving Moorish mosque, the Mezquita

the ruins of a Arab Muslim medieval palace-city

Sierra Nevada

El Torcal

White Villages

"Pueblos Blancos"  world of Moorish charm awaits you there, if you decide to travel off the beaten path

Jerez de la Frontera

one of the most underrated city of Spain, despite of this it is an equestrian mecca and the birthplace of sherry

Seville

the capital of the autonomous community of Andalusia and the cultural capital of southern Spain

country’s fourth-largest city is a cliché of matadors, strolling guitarists and flamenco dancer gypsies, tapas bars, but there's so much more than these urban treasures

Costa del Sol

Málaga

a popular city, there is no question why, but please think outside the box

Benalmadéna

Marbella

believe me it is not as posh as you think

I really love to enjoy its authentic and livable site

Puerto Banús

Marbella's most famous marina is more than a millionaires' playground

Gibraltar

technically not within Andalusia or Spain, but it is still a must-see while you are there

Costa del Luz

country's best kept secret, in my opinion the most beautiful part of Andalusia

unspoiled nature

massive white sand dunes, uncrowded hidden Atlantic beaches

Tarifa

whitewashed Arab-feeling villagea paradise for surf-lovers

Bolonia

a small isolated ex-fishing and farming village with Roman ruins

Cádiz

is a charming city, one of the oldest in Europe, Columbus sailed many times from here to America
