Go to a place where history and temperament are combined, where every stone tells the story of centuries and where the sun bathes the region for most of the year. Welcome to Andalusia, an enchanting region of southern Spain that will delight you with its unique atmosphere, natural beauty and rich cultural heritage.

Andalusia is the land of a thousand faces. Here you will find bustling historic towns and picturesque mountain villages where time seems to have stood still. The pride of the region is undoubtedly the cities of Granada with its fabulous Alhambra, Córdoba with its magnificent Mezquita and Seville with its elegant Alcázar. Fall under the spell of the labyrinthine streets, be carried away by the beauty of the Arab architecture and the lively customs and traditions that have shaped the history of this corner of the Iberian Peninsula.

The Moors, who ruled Andalusia for almost 800 years, gave the region an unmistakable character. Their legacy is evident not only in the architecture and art, but also in the local dialects, cuisine and mentality. The diversity of influences has given rise to a unique phenomenon of Spanish culture, the passionate dance of flamenco. Let yourself be swept away by its thrilling rhythm, expressive singing and virtuoso guitar playing in one of the local tablaos.

Andalusia’s nature is as diverse as its history. High in the Sierra Nevada mountains, you can ski on the southernmost slopes of Europe. A little further down, there are endless olive groves and fields of sunflowers. The Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz offer miles of golden beaches, washed by the waves of the Atlantic and Mediterranean. And the white villages of Alpujarras and the natural parks of Doñana and Cabo de Gata will delight you with their unspoilt beauty.

The climate in Andalusia is one of the most pleasant and stable in Europe. With more than 300 days of sunshine a year and pleasant temperatures most months, it’s an ideal place to visit. Spring comes early and brings meadows in bloom and lush greenery. In summer, the thermometer’s mercury climbs to tropical levels, but the hot air is tempered by sea breezes. Autumn is the time for olive harvesting, wine and festivals. And even in winter there are pleasant temperatures of around 15°C.

Whether your desire to explore the sights, relax on the beaches, hike in the mountains or sample local specialities brings you to Andalusia, this sun-drenched corner of Spain will win you over. Be seduced by the beauty of the cities and the countryside, the vibrancy of life and the peaceful rhythm of the siesta. Discover a region where Christianity and Islam intertwine, where the blood of Iberians, Romans and Berbers mingle, and where an art as captivating as flamenco is still being born. Andalusia is waiting for you – tierra de luz y pasión!
