Andalusia is a particularly beautiful region of Spain, well-regarded as a travel destination. It is home to some of Spain’s greatest historical and cultural riches as well as some of its finest architecture. Granada’s Alhambra, Seville’s Gothic cathedral, and the famous Mezquita in Cordoba are all stand-out structures that have delighted visitors for a very long time. Andalusia is also home to opportunities for rest and relaxation at coastal beach resorts like Malaga. The autonomous community is Spain’s most highly populated, and features several remarkable cities that are very unlikely to disappoint most travellers. The capital city, Seville, and the city of Granada are the most well-known, but other cities in the region are pleasant and fascinating as well.
This Spanish region is especially well-known for having been a Moorish stronghold in Spain’s Islamic past. While it ceased to be one centuries ago, the influences remain visible and have left behind fascinating history and incredible architecture that give a taste of historic Arabia without having to leave Europe. Numerous other cultures and empires have influenced the region as well. These include Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Phoenician histories as well as Romani and Iberian influences. Despite, or perhaps because of, this long and varied history, Andalusia is home to one of Spain’s strongest and richest cultural identities. In fact, when one thinks of Spanish culture, one is often thinking of Andalusia. From particular architectural styles to flamenco and bullfighting, Andalusia is about as Spanish as a visitor can expect.
The Alhambra Palace may just be the most famous of Andalusia’s many famous destinations. The palace dates back to the Islamic period and remains one of the world’s top architectural marvels. The region also features ancient Dolmen caves. The city of Seville is known for serving as inspiration for Bizet’s ‘Carmen’ and Mozart’s ‘The Marriage of Figaro’. The city also has one of the largest Christian Gothic structures in the world in its famed Cathedral. Visitors can also enjoy the Plaza de Toros, an ancient bullring.
