The Andalucia region
Spain's region of Andalucia is composed of eight provinces, stretching from the south-east to the south-west of the country, each one named for its capital city: Cadiz, Cordoba, Jaen, Huelva, Almeria, Malaga, Granada and Seville.
Once Spain´s poorest region, Andalucia - and specifically the provinces of Malaga, Granada and Seville - is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, thanks to its sandy beaches, beautiful countryside, spectacular mountain ranges, fabulous monuments and high-spirited people who live life to the full and are well known for their exuberance, warmth and hospitality.
Andalucia is also home of flamenco and bullfighting, which can be best enjoyed at the region´s countless ferias and romerias.
But perhaps the most unique feature of this enchanting region are the remnants of its Moorish past. The Moors were a mixture of Berbers and Arabs who crossed into Spain from North Africa by the Straits of Gibraltar and occupied the peninsula - which they called al Andalus - for more than seven centuries, dating from 710 when they first landed in Tarifa. Within a mere four years they had virtually conquered the entire country, although they soon withdrew to the southern part of the peninsula, where they established, in the towns of Cordoba, Seville and Granada, one of the most sophisticated civilisations of the Middle Ages. Each of these Andalucian capitals boasts spectacular remains of their monuments, the most unforgettable of which is, undoubtedly, Granada's Alhambra palace.
Andalucia has 500 miles of coastline and of which 70% are sandy beaches. The Mediterranean seaboard is graced by the Costa de Almeria, Costa Tropical and the glamorous, cosmopolitan Costa del Sol, while the Costa de la Luz lies along the Atlantic shore to the west of Gibraltar.
As well as Andalucia´s fascinating cities and dazzling shores, the region is sprinkled with tiny unspoiled villages and whitewashed towns - the famous pueblos blancos - which tourists often overlook, even though they are of easy access, such as Casares, Gaucin and Frigilana.
Andalucia, then, is a region of startling contrasts and great charm. Yet, this mysterious corner of Europe is easy to reach, with hundreds of charter flights arriving each week at Malaga´s Pablo Picasso International Airport, which lies midway between Malaga, the main city of the coast, and Torremolinos, the region´s most legendary resort.
A good time to visit Malaga is during Easter week. This festivity, declared in Malaga to be of International Tourist Interest, features spectacular religious floats known as pasos and displays of popular devotion in every part of town.
The area around Malaga reveals a province marked by extreme contrasts between its inland villages and the coast. The Costa del Sol is dotted with towns and villages with a long-standing tourist tradition such as Benalmádena, Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Marbella and Estepona. The coast is also the site of distinctive hotels such as the Malaga Golf Parador and the Nerja Parador.
Golf enthusiasts have another good excuse to visit Malaga, as there are around 30 courses scattered throughout the province, some of which are among the best in Europe.
There are various nature areas on the interior of the province, including the nature reserves of Los Alcornocales-Sierra del Aljibe, Montes de Málaga, and Sierra de las Nieves.
The region's seafood and the produce from the inland areas have contributed to the creation of a highly varied gastronomy. On the coast the most popular dish is the fresh fried seafood platter known as 'pescaíto frito' , although other typical dishes include rice with seafood, monkfish with potatoes and noodle casserole .
Soups have a preeminant place in the cuisine of Malaga, with specialities such as gazpachuelo (a soup made from potato and mayonnaise), gazpacho malagueño and ajoblanco (a type of cold soup made from almonds, oil, garlic and grapes). These dishes can be accompanied by wines with the Malaga Designation of Origin.
And for dessert, choices include sweet potato (baked or in syrup), olive oil wafers, and raisins from La Axarquía.
