The Andalucians are renowned for their exuberant nature, and this is reflected in the grandiose architecture of Seville, as well as the bold flavours of their food.

A few hours drive from the coastal resorts, Seville has a distinctively historic feel. The Moorish influence is easy to spot in the stunning architecture, and its buzzing network of tiny streets make it an explorer’s paradise. The sheer variety of buildings here represents how often Seville changed hands, and its significance as the economic hub of the Spanish empire. The main exports nowadays are the famous bitter Seville oranges, and of course – Flamenco.

Not only is Seville a stand-alone must see, but it serves as the gateway to the striking Andalucian region. If you can drag yourself away from Seville’s fragrant orange blossom gardens, the South of Spain plays host to a number of tourist-free hamlets, the so-called “white villages” which offer tranquility and incredible, authentic food options.

Further afield lies the ancient city of Córdoba – a vital Roman settlement, the capital of a Muslim emirate and hub of learning and education. At one time it was the largest city in Europe, and is perhaps best known for La Mezquita, an enormous mosque built in 784 AD, resplendent with Byzantine mosaics. Another Andalucian must-see is Grenada – home to the celebrated Alhambra – a palace and fortress complex constructed in 889 AD, and one of the last surviving example of Islamic Architecture in the region, complete with the modern addition of much photographed reflective pools.
