Andalucía and the Costa del Sol
Spain is a huge mix of cultures and landscapes, a great combination of Arabic, Romanesque and Phoenician influences.
A large area rich in tradition. Madrid, Barcelona, Seville or Málaga are the symbols of this tradition but also the main towns of a modern country which has benefited from all its advantages. Spain has become the number one tourist destination for Europeans thanks not only to its renowned, wonderful climate, fascinating culture and rich and varied cuisine, but also and especially because of the welcoming warmth of its people.
Andalucía, open and welcoming, has preserved intact its most precious treasures: a typically bright Mediterranean style of architecture, different types of scenery and an ancient culture made up of many influences. The area has eight regions, separate parts in a land full of differences.
It extends from the Almeria desert to the tourist’s Marbella, from the Alhambra of Grenada to the banks of the Guadalquivir in Seville, from the snow-capped Ronda mountains to the distinctive Mosque of Cordoba.
At the very heart of the Costa del Sol, within easy reach of such famous places as Seville, Ronda, Grenada or Marbella, Atalaya Park Golf Hotel & Resort can help you discover the least-known places of the region: a special combination of the old and new.
The Costa del Sol is like a huge geographical arc extending all the way from Nerja to the west coast of Cadiz.
With its large, wonderful coastline and lovely climate, the area has met the growing demands of tourism with sport and leisure developments, many golf courses and everything necessary to host such events as conventions and conferences.
The interior, too, is not without its interest, and a network of roads can lead visitors to typical white villages and arid Andalusian mountains.
Marbella is a delightful Andalusian town where you can still find little cobbled streets and whitewashed houses with geraniums outside.
At the foot of the “Concha” and sheltered by its distinctive mountain features which give it the mildest climate in Europe, this welcoming and cosmopolitan centre has successfully adapted to the growing demands of tourism. A few kilometres away lies Puerto Banús, playground to the international jet set and renowned throughout the world for its nightlife.
