Andalucia Tours & Holidays
Join us on a holiday to Andalucia
A diverse and historic region brimming with passion, Andalucia is one of Spain's most romantic regions.
From flamenco and tapas to cathedrals and beaches, there is plenty to experience in this spirited corner of Europe, even when you visit in the winter. The region's capital, Seville, is perfect for sunny city breaks, with its Gothic cathedral, 10th-century Royal Alcázar and historic Jewish Quarter among the most enigmatic attractions for Southern Spain holidays. Granada is home to Islamic architectural masterpieces such as Alhambra, traditional cafes and the mountainous Sierra Nevada National Park.
Another popular destination for Andalucia holidays, medieval Córdoba draws visitors from far and wide, thanks in large part to its breathtaking Mosque-Cathedra, the Mezquita. Those seeking a beach holiday will be spoilt for choice in family-friendly Malaga, which offers plenty of sun, sand and sea along the Costa del Sol. The nearby town of Ronda, meanwhile, offers a charming Moorish old town and a new town that features the legendary Plaza de Toros, a bullring dating back to the late 18th century.
