Q&A : Travel to Andalusia

Spring and early autumn are the ideal times to avoid the intense heat of summer and still enjoy pleasant weather.

The region is the birthplace of flamenco and famous painters such as Velázquez and Picasso. Religious festivals, such as Holy Week, are also major events.

Andalusia is home to many sites that bear witness to its rich past, including the Alcazar in Seville, the Mezquita in Cordoba and the Alhambra in Granada.

Andalusia is famous for Gazpacho Andaluz, Gambas de Garrucha and Piononos de Granada, among other Mediterranean delicacies.

The car is the most flexible way to get around, but the train and bus networks are equally efficient. It is advisable to reserve a parking space in advance in major cities.

It’s important to determine the number of days available and the number of stops you want to make. It’s advisable to stay at least 2 nights at each stopover and to leave some days “free” for improvisation.

Seville, Cordoba, Granada, the Costa del Sol and Ronda are key stops on a 10-day itinerary.

Playa de Burriana in Nerja, Playa Cabopino in Marbella and La Malagueta in Málaga are among the most beautiful beaches in the region.

Holy Week, flamenco festivals and local ferias are emblematic events in Andalusia.
