Nevertheless Andalusia has a whole lot more to offer and the different provinces are very distinct in their character, flavour and landscape.
The region is divided into eight separate provinces: Seville, Cádiz, Huelva, Málaga, Jaén, Granada and Almería.
Seville Seville is the capital and largest city in Andalusia, it lies on the banks of the Gaudalquivir River and is one of the most historical centres of Europe, its undeniably the main attraction of the province itself and is brimming with historical and cultural citations.
The city is the home of tapas, flamenco and the keeper of the Archive of the Indies (the extremely valuable historical records documenting the history of the Spanish empire).
The coastal towns of Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola and Marbella which were once just small fishing towns with very little to offer, now count as amongst the most important touristic destinations in Europe and are also home to a high population of foreign residents who have swapped their Northern climes for southern sun.
Inland Malaga paints a completely different picture; white washed rural villages, kilometre upon kilometre of olive and orange groves, rolling countryside and ancient settlement ruins dating back to Roman and Neolithic ages.
Jaen Jaen is the world’s leading producer of olive oil and much of the unspoilt landscape is a vista of olive groves, white washed farms and ancient castles and churches.
The capital city of the same name, Almería was an Arabic stronghold and the principal harbour in its domain.Relatively few tourists venture beyond the capital, but its absolutely worth it if you have the time.Much of the province is cut through by the River Gaudalquivir, which sets a striking scene.In terms of gastronomy, Malaga is noted for the great variety of fish and fish dishes offered.The famous ‘pescadito frito’ (fried mixed fish) and ‘Sardinas el Espeto’ (Sardines on the Spit) are two favourites.
The distinct wild environment was the location for many of the Spaghetti Western movies.
