Andalucia and The Surrounding Areas
Putting the glamour, warm weather and glorious sunshine aside, Andalucia is famous for something much more spectacular. It’s the only region in Europe to be surrounded by both the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic coastlines. Culture in Andalucia is limitless too.
You can explore the Great Mosque of Cordoba and the local striking cathedrals and monasteries. If history is something that you’re interested in, then visit the historic castles and forts. The city centres are also bursting with historical landmarks and architecture. You’re guaranteed memorable photographs and fascinating history during your visit.
Andalucia also has some hidden gems; Ubeda and Baeza. Both cities are part of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. Visiting a World Heritage Site is a once in a lifetime opportunity, so make sure you plan a visit to the Renaissance monumental sites. The buildings have some of the world’s most famous architectural designs, which inspired the architecture of today. For the art lovers, visit the square of Plaza Vazquez de Molina and the stunning surroundings.
It doesn’t take long to understand why Ubeda was declared a World Heritage.
If you thought Andalucia wasn’t impressive enough, there’s more. Christopher Columbus visited the Costa del Sol region in 1485. To learn more about Christopher Columbus and his adventures, you can explore his replica boats; the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria in the Muelle de las Carabelas (Caravels Dock Museum) in Palos de la Frontera, in the Huelva province.
Andalucia also one of the hottest regions in Europe with average temperatures reaching up to 36 degrees in summer in Seville, one of the most desirable cities to visit. So, packing sun lotion should be the top of your packing list.
Probably one of the most famous regions in Andalucia is Marbella and forget the ‘no carbs before marbs’. Like all other regions in Spain, you shouldn’t hold back on eating the local dishes. Marbella is another famous destination in the Costa del Sol for the wealthy. The nearby marina, Puerto Banus, is the perfect spot for some shopping and watching the world go by.
