Top Tourist Attractions & Places To Visit In Andalucía
Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains, Granada boasts one of the top historic sites in Spain, La Alhambra. The UNESCO listed monument was built by the Moors and it’s more than a palace, it’s a citadel with a complex of various palaces, gardens and a fortress once home to the Sultan. We’ll enjoy a guided tour of La Alhambra and the Generalife Gardens and explore this incredible sight.
Located on the banks of the River Guadalquivir, Sevilla is famous for flamenco and orange trees, and has a colourful cultural and architectural heritage. One of its famous claims is that it’s the birthplace of Tapas! It’s also home to The Alcázar, Europe's oldest royal palace, which is still in use today. We’ll enjoy a panoramic tour of Seville, one of Spain’s most vibrant cities on our Andalucía holidays and we’ll see highlights like Plaza Espana, Seville Cathedral and San Telmo Palace.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most magnificent cities of medieval times, Córdoba is a dynamic blend of history and culture; founded by the Carthaginians, taken over by the Romans, then under Arab rule and eventually conquered by the Catholic Kingdom of Castile. Whilst taking a guided walking tour of Córdoba, we’ll explore the historic town centre and see the stunning Mezquita, which was once a mosque, and is now a Christian cathedral.
Nerja has a long history, which can be seen in the ancient paintings found in the Caves of Nerja. These caves are now believed to be just one entrance to a linked series of underground tunnels which extend many miles into the mountains between Nerja and Granada. It’s also famous for the "Balcon de Europa" or Balcony of Europe, aptly named by King Alphons XII and offers beautiful Mediterranean views. On our trips to Nerja, we’ll also have time to relax on the famous Costa del Sol.
The birthplace of renowned artist Picassco, rich in historic-artistic heritage, the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Malaga is situated on the beautiful Andalucian coastline. On our guided excursions to Malaga, we’ll get a taste of this wonderful city and there will be an opportunity to visit the Picasso Museum to see some of his best artwork and we’ll go to the top of Gibralfaro to get the best views over the city and its harbour.

Andalucía Holiday FAQs
Do Andalucía hotels provide entertainment and is free WiFi available?
Free Wi-Fi is available in all areas of the Andalucía hotels for your use. While the larger resort-based hotels usually offer evening entertainment, smaller hotels and some with inland locations may not. However live music can often be found in outdoor public areas and in many bars and cafes.
Can hotels in Andalucía provide meals to suit my dietary requirements?
When notified in advance, Travel Department can inform our hotels in Andalucía of your dietary requests, such as gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan foods. Please note that choices may be limited compared to the offering found in hotels at home.
Is there a dress code at my hotel or going out in Andalucía?
For restaurants and hotel dining rooms there is no need to dress up, but “beach wear” attire, such as swimsuits and flipflops is not normally allowed. When visiting churches and holy places, it is advised to cover up bare flesh; shoulders, chest, legs.
I have walking difficulties, is a holiday in Andalucía suitable?
Our guided tours in Andalucía will involve periods of walking and standing, at times on uneven or cobbled surfaces. There will be steep inclines or steps to negotiate at some locations. A reasonable degree of health and mobility is required. For all our tours we have an activity level guide to help you decide which holiday suits you best. For specific advice regarding our Andalucía tours and to discuss any special needs, please contact us directly and we will be happy to assist you.
What are the most popular food and drinks to try in Andalucía?
Eating and drinking is a major part of Andalusian culture with plenty of flavoursome food available influenced by the area’s Moorish heritage. Along the coastline, delicious fish and seafood are widespread. While further inland, rich stews, jamones (cured hams) and game are preferred. Wherever you are, however, there is no better pleasure than joining the regulars at a local bar to wind down over a glass of fino (dry sherry from Jerez) while nibbling one of Andalucía’s world famous tapas or olives. Some of Travel Department’s favourite tapas include Tortilla Española, an omelette with potatoes and onion and Gambas al Ajillo, prawns cooked in a garlic and chilli sauce.
When is the best time to visit Andalucía?
Spring and autumn are the best times to visit Andalucía, where it is warm and balmy, without the intense heat of peak summer. Temperatures in these seasons range from 15-25 degrees, ideal weather for sightseeing in Andalucía.
