Luxury in Andalucia: Colourful tapestry of Spanish culture
Andalucía's fascinating history has made it what it is today: a colourful tapestry of Spanish culture, sights and cuisine. Ancient mosques and churches that have been preserved perfectly offer visitors a glimpse into times gone by, majestic palaces are sure to impress and surprise and quaint towns that offer tasty tappas are a favourite among locals and tourists. The Alcalá la Real's fortress, the Fortaleza de la Mota is a sight to see at an elevation of 3389 feet for the most fantastic views of the Sierra Nevada. Follow the beautiful notes of flamenco guitars to Arcos de la Frontera where cobblestone streets and whitewashed houses greet you as you make your way to the Plaza de España to see the gorgeous Guadalete Valley. In the summertime the hills on the way to the vineyards of Montilla-Moriles are covered in bright yellow sunflowers. Enjoy rich wines and dry sherries and ask for a bottle of Montilla-Moriles special young white wine to refresh you on hot, sunny days.
To enjoy theatre, dance, classical and contemporary music the Teatro Central in Seville's productions will not disappoint. Seville's traditional bullfights also attract large crowds at Maestranza Bullring. Brush shoulders with celebrities when you explore Andalucía's vibrant nightlife in dance clubs like Granada 10 (in Granada) or at one of the most prominent opera houses in the world, Teatro de la Maestranza in Seville. For finely crafted leather goods a shopping trip to the Meryan workshop in Córdoba is a must and the beautiful blue and green patterned ceramics at Capricho del Artesano in Granada make beautiful gifts and souvenirs. For visitors who prefer the outdoors, Andalucía offers unspoiled beaches in Mazagón that stretch for 5 kilometres and are surrounded by sandstone cliffs, powdery dunes and lively beach bars.
