Attractions from Andalucia

Attractions from

The Mountains Sierra Nevada (Andalucia)
The mountains in Granada are covered by snow a large part of the year and it is possible to ski here from November to the end of May. The rest of the year Sierra Nevada is a nature park with endless possibilities for walks. Mount Mulhacen is 3000 metre high. Standing on the top you get the feeling of standing at the moon.
The Palace in Granada (Andalucia)
Alhambra, one of the most interesting and romantic of all the European monuments, dominates the city of Granada. The palace belonged to the sultan of the Spanish kingdom of the Moors. The Moorish culture and spirit is clearly reflected in the palace's style and architecture.
The River Guadalquivir (Andalucia)
The river Guadalquivir runs slowly westward towards Seville through Andalucia. The many towns that have sprung up near the river are well worth a visit. You can also see the old bridge Puente de la Donadas, which is said to have taken 50 years to build. According to the legend the bridge was only finished because the villagers sold their jewellery to raise the money needed for the completion.
The City Malaga (Málaga)
The largest coastal city in Andalucia Malaga is wonderfully untouched by mass tourism. You can visit the city's castle, which was build by the Moors. The most famous inhabitant of Malaga was Pablo Picasso and several galleries in the city display his work.
Museo del Bellas Artes (Seville)
This museum is one of the most beautiful in Spain. It is situated at a small square a short distance from the city centre and the street noise. The building build by the architect Juan de Oviedo is from 1612. Flowers and green plants decorate the museum that houses an impressive collection of Spanish art from the Middle Ages till today.
The Minaret (Seville)
The minaret at Seville's impressive cathedral was used by the Moors to call the faithful to prayer and to observe the city. The Moors held the minaret in so high esteem that they wanted to destroy it before the Christians got hold of it when they conquered the city. They were stopped in doing so by King Alfonso X who threatened to cut off their heads if they removed as much as one single stone.
The Neighbourhood Barrio Santa Cruz (Seville)
This neighbourhood in Seville is an enchanting place. Here the narrow streets made out of cobblestone wind between cafés and bars. The neighbourhood is a part of the old Jewish quarter. Among the many sights to be found here you will find the Gothic cathedral.
