Southern Spain

Southern Spain

Southern Spain is well loved for its warm Mediterranean climate and its magnificent cities such as Grenada, Seville, and Córdoba. Other highlights include delicious regional cuisine, world renowned wines, soulful flamenco dancing, vast areas of ecologically rich nature reserves, beautiful beaches, and rich architecture. Castles, palaces, fortresses, old ports, and white washed villages grace the countryside, cities, and towns across the region.

In Andalucía, historical landmarks reflect a dizzying matrix of Moorish palaces, Phoenician ports, enormous Gothic churches and more. The food, like the monuments and the way of life, also reflects many layers of different cultures that have left their mark on this sun blessed stretch of southern Spain.

The area has many protected natural environments, including nature reserves, designated biospheres, and two national parks – Doñana National Park and Sierra Nevada National Park. The park, which covers areas in the regions of Huelva, Cádiz, and Seville, is well known for its spectacular bird life – both residents and migratory birds can be spotted, as well as the endangered lynx.

Dance and culture are vibrant elements of everyday life in southern Spain. The sun casts beautiful light over the glistening sea, pristine pueblos, colorful flower-laden patios, and ancient castles.  Lively fiestas are regular occurrences, and every evening is reason to celebrate with friends in this beautiful setting.
