3 Andalusian Gems You Need To Visit
Ryanair and other low-cost carriers have opened new routes to Seville, the capital of the Andalusian region in Spain. Since it’s becoming cheaper than ever to visit this lovely region, we have written a blog post to highlight some of the most beautiful places in Andalusia. And why three? You don’t want to go overboard with different destinations when you are planning your trip to this Spanish autonomous community. Each of these three sights demands more time than just quickly passing through, already thinking about the next place. Take your time, grab some tapas and good wine, and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that these places hold. You won’t be disappointed, we promise!
Granada is a city absolutely soaked in culture and history. And it’s one of the most diverse towns in the region: you’ll find Moorish, Christian, Jewish, and other influences making up the cultural fabric of Granada. Alhambra gardens and palace is the main sight in the city. Each year, this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage List complex invites millions of visitors.
One of the most famous cities in Spain but never catching up with Madrid and Barcelona, Seville definitely isn’t a place you visit just for half a day or one night. True, there are tourists out there who accomplish this, yet this is something we really recommend you not to do. Did you know that some really typical ‘Spanish things’ are actually ‘things from Sevilla’? This holds true for bulls, Flamenco, and tapas. That’s why you should aim to try Flamenco and eat tapas at least twice (or three, or more times). And when it comes to bulls, maybe you can just find a nice souvenir depicting these powerful animals. You will find many sights in Seville that are absolutely crucial to visit: Plaza de España, Seville Cathedral, and La Giralda just to name a few. There are quite a few green spaces in this city where you can take some time off and have a picnic or just relax while doing some people-watching. Maria Luisa park is one of the favourites among locals and visitors alike.
This coastal city is served by many low-cost airlines, especially Ryanair. If you don’t fancy landing in Seville, then this is your second best option as a gateway to the wider region. But don’t hurry out of Malaga! While it’s definitely one of those towns flocked by sun worshippers (and if you belong to this group of people, you’ll love the beaches), then there’s plenty of other things to do as well. Sample the local cuisine, stroll along the Old Town streets, and venture out to discover the breathtaking King’s pathway.
