Andalucia is a walker's and cyclists paradise with amazing light for photography.
Wildlife includes the illusive genet, wild boar, polecats and hares.

The Romans and the Moors both left their mark on Andalucia; the Alhambra Palace in Granada is perhaps the most well known example. History is ingrained in the towns, villages and countryside of the region - in the architecture, the fountains and the food.
The people are friendly and delighted that you would choose to visit their region.
Summers are long and hot with practically guaranteed sunshine. Spring and Autumn are delightful with long growing seasons. Winter can be very cold in comparison!
Priego de Cordoba has won one of the top awards for the quality of its olive oil and many olive mills welcome visitors to learn about the process and tempt them with ecological hand creams, soaps and other olive oil products in addition to the amazing extra virgin oil of the region.
There are numerous Saint’s Days, National bank holidays and local holidays – essentially, the Andalucians love a fiesta! We are pleased to find out what is going on at the time of your visit.
Almedinilla itself is incredibly proud of its Roman heritage. Visit the excavations at the roman villa and the museum. The pretty little town even has its own full sized coliseum!
