Andalucia travel guide

4.7
Architectural Buildings · Castles · Landmarks
A region of geographic contrasts, Andalucía is home to ancient cities, sun-warmed beaches, deserts, and mountains. Spanning almost the entire southern section of Spain, it boasts a rich Moorish heritage, with numerous outstanding examples of Islamic architecture. Today, it’s a popular vacation destination for European tourists drawn to the modern resorts of Costa del Sol, but these beachside hotel complexes don’t overshadow Andalucía’s fascinating history. Numerous secluded corners of the coast remain unblemished by crowds. Farther inland, in cozy villages frozen in time, the local bar is the center of all activity, and farmers are the unofficial tour guides.
