Spain is really filled with Squares called Plaza de Espana, but the most iconic is in Andalusia, in Seville, the proper andalusien one. The colours and the canal going around the amazing square, give to this place the magic of the fairytales.

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.

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.

Jerez de la Frontera is a pretty little town in a middle way between Cadiz and Seville. 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.

Wow what great photos! I would love to be able to explore this region and a good road trip sounds like the way to go. Ronda looks stunning with all those houses and building atop the hill. I bet the food and wine in these towns were also amazing:)

Thank You, you are so kind! Ronda is stunning, but if you can make just Malaga and around, Torremolinos and Marbella are nice too, also made with white cobblestone giving to the landscape such as an amazing scenario.

Loving your photos in your post here and I totally agree, these photos should get people out there visiting this beautiful region of Spain. I did a big tour of Andalusia back in 2011 and I still havent done everything. Get away from the British tourists on the beaches, head inland and see what there is to discover! Amazing area.
