Andalusia, a dreamy land in southern Spain complete with Moorish buildings and castles, flamenco music and dance, whitewashed towns perched atop rugged mountains and so much more.
Some cities fascinate you, charm you and enrapture you while only a handful make you fall head over heals for them, make you never want to leave. Seville is one of the handful.
The Royal Alcázar of Seville, Catedral de Sevilla, Plaza de España and Las Setas De Sevilla are the high-profile attractions of Seville.
A palace and a fortress in Granada, it stands as a testimony of the finest Moorish architecture and culture.
With the Sierra Nevada Mountains making for the perfect backdrop, this grand complex encompasses landscaped rose gardens and a number of other palaces that are worth a visit.
Pictures do not do justice to the beauty of this city.
Once an important hub for scholars of the Middle Age, it is now a city with heavy influences of Moorish architecture, impressive mosques, gardens, courtyards and colorful patio houses unlike anywhere else in Spain.
Set atop the dramatic El Tajo gorge, this white-washed mountaintop city is divided into two halves situated on either side of the gorge.
Both the halves are connected via the Puerto Nuevo, a stone bridge which makes for the ultimate vantage point to gawk at the gorge below.
The capital of Costa del Sol, the city is more than just beaches.
The birthplace of Picasso, it is an eloquent city where modern and Moorish style architecture live in harmony. You just can’t get enough of city’s culture, food and energetic atmosphere.
A slice of heaven for beach lovers, 27 km of glistening white sand beaches, bars and a laid-back vibe.
The city has vibrant neighborhoods, each looking like a different town in itself. It is an absolute delight to explore the city.
