Andalusia


Magic Andalusia
Andalusia is the southernmost of autonomous communities in Spain, and especially outstanding due to its multiplicity and brightness.

Andalusia has an area of approximately 87,000 sq. km and over 3,000 sunny hours in a year. It is bordered in the north by the mountains Sierra Morena and in the south by the Baetic Mountains, and crossed through its whole length by the powerful river Guadalquivir.

Art, culture and tradition
Several millennia of history have left an immense art and historical heritage. The Alhambra in Granada, the Mezquita (former mosque) in Córdoba or the Giralda and the old town of Seville are all architectural milestones in the history of humankind. Especially villages and towns of the region reflect the most inspiring moments of Andalusian art.

The magnificent architecture, much influenced by the Islam, the Renaissance and above all the Baroque, is represented by palaces, castles and monasteries, which turned all Andalusian provinces into examples of unique art and historical heritage. In Andalusia you will find famous paintings, sculptures, pieces of jewellery and archaeological findings, distributed in cathedrals and churches, palaces, monasteries and museums, and confirming the powerful artistic development of the region. You should not be surprised to find an important altar, a painting masterpiece, or an example of consummate goldsmith art even in a remotest village.

Numerous festivals celebrated in Andalusia are just as versatile and rich as its landscape. Andalusian festival calendar is a true encyclopaedia of the tradition and artistic expression of its cities and villages. At spring and harvest festivals, annual fairs, on every holiday in honour of a village Patron Saint, at wine picking festivals, as well as pilgrimages finest handicraft, cuisine, music and religious rituals are presented.

There is fine ceramics and pottery, gold, silver and copper art, shoemaking and saddle craft, handmade finery, shawls and embroidery, as well as countless other products of handicraft mastery such as furniture, stone and marble products, fine works from plant fibres, book bindings and precious music instruments, to mention just a few.

Places of interest
As a result of influence of different cultures, an enviable number of artistic and architectural treasures have remained in all Andalusian cities.

Nature reserves
Almost 20 percent of Spain's nature reserves belong to Andalusia. The efforts of environmentalists in Andalusia go in the direction of protecting and conserving nature reserves and the highest peaks of the Spanish mainland, the mountains of Sierra Nevada. The representative nature reserve of Doñana is protected under the UNESCO biosphere reserve program.
