Oh, and of course, tell me all about it in the comments! Located in an endless olive grove these towns are dotted with wonderful Renaissance Architecture. Take one of the roads going north from the A, either towards Capileira or Trevelez and find a place where you can stop along the road.
I could have taken pictures here for days! You can walk along the southwestern edge of the centro and find lookout points to see views of the valley below. Malaga Malaga surprised me. The tile, the courtyards, and gardens were astounding.
Paella and flamenco dancers. Visit the fishing villages and enjoy fabulous seafood and impressive views across the coast. We were fearless, and everything was possible. Be sure to also visit the Castillo de San Sebastian that is only connected to the mainland by a bridge. A fabulous place for photographers and the perfect location to begin or end an Andalusian road trip.
April, May, late September and October usually have pleasant temperatures and cooler nights - though there is a chance of rainstorms. You can spend hours just taking pictures.
The downtown Centro is full of historic buildings like the giant cathedral, the Plaza San Juan de Dios, the San Francisco church and convent, and many plazas. Be sure to also climb up the Torre Giralda on the side of the Cathedral. This along with the food and wine here is amongst the best in Spain.
You can also take a tour inside. This provincial town feels very Spanish and is slightly off the main tourist track. You can climb to the top of this tower and get sweeping views of the picturesque city.
I now call the city of Granada my hometown.
Think about your oldest travel memory, try to remember how it made you feel, and hold that thought while reading! The fortress stands above the port and over the city facing out to sea to defend the location from invaders and pirated over the centuries.
The rocky cliffs and small cove beaches on this stretch of coastline are a stunning location for a relaxing holiday. Almeria The province of Almeria has days of sunshine each year.Before my latest trip, it had been more than 15 years since my last visit to Andalusia and I think I’d kinda forgotten how absolutely beautiful it is.
Or maybe I didn’t fully realize it back then, I was 17, on a school trip and probably more interested in that handsome guy from my class than in Spanish history.

Andalusia, a region covering Southern Spain has now been home for me for many years. (since ) I am lucky to be able to enjoy amazing beaches and cities full of history right my doorstep.
This area has many traditional festivals and is also the birthplace of Flamenco too. This along with the food. As Spain’s most populated region, Andalucia is home to some of the country’s most well-known holidays and festivals.
The undisputed star of Andalusian holidays is the “Semana Santa” (Holy Week) celebrations and processions, which occur the week leading up to Easter across the region.
My road trip through Andalucia was in November and I split my days in half. I drove during siesta time and arrived in my new city early evenings. This way, I had 1 evening to look around, a full day of exploring and a morning of wandering around.Download
