Andalucia holidays are all about being immersed in the mainstays of authentic southern Spain – like flamenco music and tapas small plates.
Holidays to southern Spain
The beach resorts alone are worth shouting about – and no wonder, when they total 600 sandy miles altogether. If you’re going to tick two beaches off your list, the Playa de Los Genoveses in Almeria and Zahara de los Atunes in Cadiz are top-notch. The first is truly unspoilt and often footprint-free, while the latter’s lined with restaurants and is a favourite with A-list celebrities.
Things to do in Seville
Seville’s the largest town in the south of Spain. According to legend, it was created by Hercules, plus its modern history is just as fascinating. As one of the largest historical centres in Europe, Seville’s home to a giant Gothic cathedral that lords it over the town. And it’s winding Medieval lanes are littered with flamenco clubs, Baroque churches and centuries-old palaces.
Mountain villages and walking breaks
If mountain hikes and picturesque walks are your game, take a day out of your beach holiday to visit the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Its peaks are the highest point in mainland Spain, and are freckled with Instagram-worthy white villages, known collectively as Las Alpujarras.
