ANDALUSIA – WELCOME TO THE LAND OF HOT SUN, OLIVE GROVES AND FLAMENCO!

Andalusia is one of the largest autonomic regions of Spain. It is situated on the southern part of Iberian Peninsula, and it is divided into eight provinces: Almeria, Cadiz, Cordoba, Grenada, Huelva, Jaen, Malaga and Seville – the capital of the region. According to historical documents, corrida and flamenco culture, dance and music were born there – they are distinctive for the whole kingdom.

The most interesting vacation places situated on the southernmost side of the Iberian Peninsula and, at the same time, the most often mentioned in guidebooks are: Grenada with its amazing palace complex called Alhambra, Costa del Sol (Sun Coast) attractions, Costa de la Luz (Light Coast), the only natural desert in Europe – Tabernas, tall mountain ranges including Sierra Nevada, Donana National Park and Costa Tropical in Grenada province.

The local area makes it impossible to be bored, both during vacation and while living in this charming part of Spain.
