Days full of light and magical nights. 836 kms of beaches and an interior covered with green mountains. Sun and snow. Great plains and high peaks. A dynamic land and a paradise of tranquillity. A region suffused with history and a population looking to the future.

Such is Andalucía, in the south of the Iberian Peninsula, a land full of contrasts, a region open to the world, offering visitors unique and authentic places to go. Its temperate mediterranean climate gives it the benefit of an average 320 days of sunshine each year on the Costa del Sol.

This characteristic gives Andalucía its principal defining feature, a lightheartedness which is reflected in the carefree and hospitable manner of its people. Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs are among the numerous civilisations which have left their mark on this region of southern Spain, and this historical heritage has contributed to the development of a culturally rich inheritance.

The most charming Spanish towns can be found in Andalusia. Sevilla, Córdoba, Granada, Ronda or Marbella The Cordoba Mosque, the Alhambra of Grenada or the Giralda of Seville, all known the world over, are proof of this. Andalucía possesses, too, great ecological wealth, with more than 18% of this region consisting of areas of nature.
 

The Doñana National Park, designated by UNESCO as a "Biosphere Reserve", bears witness to the diversity of the Andalusian ecosystem. Andalusian celebrations, renowned throughout the world, are always distinctive: examples include the fervour surrounding Holy Week, the colour characterising the ššFeriasš" of Seville and Málaga, and the bullfights or the "Rocio Romeriaš" which attracts pilgrims from all over Spain. These are all expressions of popular sentiment transformed into festive life.

Flamenco, a mix of historical dance and music style closely connected to Gipsy culture, is always a part of Andalusian traditions. Also not to be overlooked is gastronomy in which olive oil, serrano ham and the wines of Jerez and Málaga occupy an important position.

Andalucía is, ultimately, a land of traditions but one which is facing the future with the self-confidence needed to meet all demands. The Andalusian infrastructure has undergone a wholesale transformation, placing it among Europe's best, with its 2 international airports at Malaga and Seville, and the high-speed train link between Seville and Madrid and the port of Algeciras, one of the principal intersections of international shipping.
