Sevilla – Plaza de España – Tour Andalusia
Spain is really filled with Squares called Plaza de Espana, but the most iconic is in Andalusia, in Sevilla, the proper andalusien one. The colours and the canal going around the amazing square, give to this place the magic of the fairytales.
Cadiz – Seaside and view on the old town – Tour of Andalucia
The landscape of the seaside of Cadiz is really amazing, a long line of beach, sand and sea. It is amazing to walk on the seaside and enjoy the warm weather of this city. It is a big city with an ancient history, connected to the mainland by a single bridge that allows you to enter and exit the city.
Cordoba – The Arabic domination and Mezquita
Gibraltar – The free life of macaques – Tour Andalusia
Those curious macaques are free on the rock, the local authorities feed them regularly to avoid their descent into the city. Nobody knows the truth about how these animals, typical of the African continent, have arrived on the Spanish coasts. Someone thinks they have arrived here on board the merchant ships from the near coasts of Morocco.
To go to the top of the rock there is a cable car, from there you can have a beautiful view on the Spanish coast and understand all the border of Gibraltar.
Gibraltar – The view on the Moroccan land
This is one of the European nearest points with Africa, you can reach by boat the coast of Marocco in less than an hour and a half. There are a lot of ferry company offering this service and the price are going from 50 euro to 150 euro.
Granada – The Alhambra is magic – Tour Andalusia
Granada is a really big city, the main attraction of this place is the Alhambra, it is a true walled city, a medina that occupies most of the Sabika hill. It is part of the UNESCO heritage together with the Generalife.

Ronda – The white town of Andalucia
Jerez de la Frontera – The town of the Moto Gp
Jerez de la Frontera is a pretty little town in a middle way between Cadiz and Sevilla. We stopped here just because Toti knew this place for the Moto GP. We found the annual “Feira del Caballo”, where people from all over come to see the best quality of horses in the World, the Andalusian Horse. It is well known and the city is pretty to be visited, there is a touristic centre. The people working in are really nice and gentle, the office is right in the main square of the town.
Malaga – Playa Malagueta – Tour Andalusia
The beautiful and long coast give to Malaga the sceptre of the King of Andalusia. In summer this place is so busy, all the people in Andalusia are going to the coast and since may you will find this beach completely full.
Malaga is well known even as a cruise harbour, so expect to see hordes of tourists overcrowd any available space.
Ten photos are too short to enjoy enough and too low to book a ticket straight. Here we go. If you are not fully convinced about this place, there are other two shots will make you super happy to plan Andalusia as your next holiday destination.
