Home to many of the typical Spanish experiences travelers crave, Andalucia is a paradise region. Visit the area where tapas, bullfighting, flamenco and even the guitar originated from, according to Lonely Planet. The lively cultural atmosphere, festivals and exceptional nightlife of the region make it a fun destination for many travelers. Take a tour of Spain and visit the southern region of Andalucia.
Here are three things to try:
In the midst of exploring, shopping and trying the native cuisine during a Spain tour, consider taking the time to practice your golf swing. Andalucia is considered a prime location to play a round of golf - all year. The exceptional climate and plentiful course options attract players from around the world.
The Finca Cortesin Golf Club was recently named in the Volvo World Match Play Championship, and is only 40 minutes from Malaga.
The quaint town of Ronda is picture perfect and ideal for visitors looking for a day trip from the busier coastal cities. According to Lonely Planet, the town is perched on an inland plateau and surrounded by the Serrania de Ronda. It features an interesting mix of Islamic town, romantic Spanish folk traditions and an arty atmosphere.
While visiting Ronda, check out the Plaza de Espana. This area was made famous by Ernest Hemingway in his novel "For Whom the Bell Tolls." Key elements included in the novel's 10th chapter were based on real events that happened here.
Enhance your trip to Andalucia by eating the traditional cuisine. Tapas, a small Spanish savory finger food that is served with certain drinks, are common and native to the region. Historically, the dish was served for free when people drank alcohol at an establishment. However, that is no longer the case most days, with a few exceptions such as holidays or festivals. Try the traditional dish with a few glasses of sherry for a truly authentic experience.
Look down in wonder at Buckingham Palace, the Palace of Westminster and St Paul’s Cathedral from your glass-walled pod on the London Eye, then gaze out over the Louvre and the Champs-Elysees from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
The scent of rich pine forests lingers in the breeze as the 13th-century ruins of Turaida Castle are revealed before your eyes in the lush Gauja River valley in a medieval sanctuary untouched by the march of time.
The aroma of dark roasted Viennese coffee hangs thick in the air as you tread the cobblestone laneways and bask in the elegant architecture, atmospheric cafes and refined restaurants in one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe.
