When it comes to Andalusia, the unique mountain landscapes, stunning coastlines and beautiful green spaces are not the only draws to the region. Andalusia is steeped in fascinating history and the best way to learn about it is in its cities, many of which are even recognised as Unesco World Heritage Cities.
And if that isn’t enough to immerse yourself in the culture, Andalusia is famous for its food, and there are plenty of opportunities to learn about, and sample, its locally sourced ingredients.
Andalusia will also be offering all international visitors free Covid-19 travel insurance from next year so your customers can visit with peace of mind. For more information, click here.
Rich history is etched into the Unesco World Heritage Cities across Andalusia. From the spectacular mosque-cathedral in Córdoba to the Renaissance architecture of the Vázquez de Molina Square in Úbeda, there are so many attractions with a fascinating past.
Seville is one such destination where you will see renowned monuments everywhere you turn. The Royal Alcázar, a magnificent palace dating back to the 11th century, should be top of the list to visit. Meanwhile, in Granada, lose yourself in the labyrinth of narrow streets in the district of Albayzín.
There’s no better way to relax after a day of sightseeing than heading to a local cafe or restaurant to enjoy some traditional food and drink. Whether you stumble upon a coffee shop in an old town square or a small tavern hidden away in a narrow, cobbled street, you’re bound to find a mouth-watering meal.
Andalusia is known for its world-class cuisine. Its specialities come from its diverse landscape and variety of terrains, so your customers will have plenty of opportunities to try everything from Iberian ham to freshly caught tuna.
If heading straight to the source is of interest, Andalusia has a number of gastronomy routes they can follow – the Wine and Marco de Jerez Brandy Route just outside Cadiz is one of the best to visit the vineyards and sample the local tipples.
