Arcos de la Frontera, Spain: Queen of Andalucía

More info about travel to Arcos de la Frontera: The route of the Pueblos Blancos, or white towns, is a charm bracelet of characteristic towns perched in the hills and mountains of Andalucía. The queen of the hill towns, Arcos de la Frontera, smothers its hilltop and tumbles down its back like the train of a wedding dress. Towns with de la Frontera in their names, like Arcos, were established on the frontier during the battle to reclaim Spain from the Muslims. As the Moors retreated into Northern Africa, the frontier towns, though no longer on the frontier, kept the de la Frontera as part of their names.

Trip to - Andalusia | 2018 #triplovers

Andalusia, or Andalucia as it’s spelled in Spanish, is unique and diverse. A multi-province region spanning the southern part of Spain, Andalusia reaches from the Mediterranean Sea in the east to the Atlantic coast in the west, and from Malaga in the south to Jaen in the north, where Andalusia grazes the borders of Castilla-La Mancha, an autonomous region covering the famous plains of Spain.

With an average of more than 300 days of sunshine each year, Andalusia is a year-round destination. In summer, it’s not unusual for the thermometer to hit 40°C/104°F, or more. In winter, the inland provinces of Cordoba, Jaen and Sevilla can reach 0°C/32°F overnight, while the coasts experience milder and more moderate temperatures throughout the year.

Probably the biggest challenge in planning a trip to Andalusia is the amount and diversity of attractions: Roman ruins, Moorish castles, small white-washed hill towns, cosmopolitan cities, sunshine, beaches, natural parks, and small wineries and gastronomy are all on the menu for an Andalusia vacation.

The most difficult thing is choosing where to go and what to do and see in Andalusia!

Where to Stay in Andalusia: 5 Cities to Base Yourself in Andalusia: If you’re looking to base yourself somewhere in Andalusia, start with these 5 cities, and plan your trip from there. These also make great main stops on an Andalusia road trip.

Seville: A place like no other, we dare you not to fall in love with the orange tree-lined streets, tapas bars, and beautiful buildings.
Granada: Home to the famous Alhambra de Granada, Granada is a mix of cultures and history. Get lost in the lovely Albaicin, and count how many different views of the Alhambra you can find.
Cordoba: Come for the Great Mosque of Cordoba, stay for the charming patios, wonderful food, and beautiful old city.
Malaga: At one end of the Costa del Sol, Malaga has distinguished itself as a hub of modern culture, with more than 30 museums to keep you busy when you’re finished with sun and sea.
Cadiz: A bit further off the tourist trail than some others, Cadiz is well worth the time and effort. With a beautiful old town and lovely seaside, Cadiz is also a great base from which to visit some of the white towns.

Where to Go in Andalusia: Cities, Towns, & Villages to Visit: Get out of the main tourist cities with visits to smaller cities, as well as lovely towns, and villages. Many of these spots can be visited from one of the larger “base” cities of Andalusia.

Jaen: A hidden gem with few tourists, Jaen’s beautiful parador alone makes it worth the visit. It’s also the perfect jumping off point for visits to the UNESCO towns of Úbeda and Baeza.
Carmona: A pretty town of 30,000 between Seville and Cordoba, Carmona makes a great day trip from either city, or a nice smaller spot to base yourself if you’re not a city person.
Ronda: One of Malaga’s famed white towns, Ronda’s dramatic scenery is a top reason to visit.
More White Towns: Arcos de la Frontera and Grazalema in Cadiz province are two more lovely white towns you might want to add to your itinerary.
Villages of the Alpujarras: Not officially part of the ‘white villages’, the villages of Granada’s Alpujarras are just as beautiful, if not even more so.
Alcala la Real: Halfway between the cities of Granada and Jaen, Alcala la Real is home to the impressive La Mota Fortress

Granada, Spain: The Exquisite Alhambra

More info about travel to Granada: Granada's dominant sight is the Alhambra, the last and greatest Moorish palace. For two centuries, until 1492, Granada reigned as the capital of a dwindling Moorish empire. As Christian forces pushed the Moors farther and farther south, this palace was the last hurrah of a sophisticated civilization.

10 Things to do in Granada, Spain Travel Guide Video Transcript:

Wrapping up our travels in Spain, our last city to visit was Granada. Set in Andalusia at the foot of the snow capped Sierra Nevada, this is a place where Moorish influence is palpable. From hilltop fortresses to Moroccan markets, and tranquil gardens to quaint teahouses, in this travel guide we’re going to show you some of the things you can do in Granada:

This Cathedral was as grand as you’d expect. The stark white interiors were a bit of a contrast to the ornate churches we had seen in other cities, but that just made your eyes travel towards a glowing, golden altar.

The Moroccan souk turned out to be one of our favourite spots in the city. The street was packed with tiny shops standing shoulder to shoulder, all filled with leather handbags, glass lamps, wool slippers, colourful scarves and pashminas and souvenirs.

We continued our way up the hill into Albayzín. This is one of the oldest centres of Muslim culture in Granada. The neighbourhood is a maze of narrow cobbled streets, white-houses with tiled roofs, and small courtyards sprinkled in between.

We made time to stop at one of the teterías, or teahouses. This was the perfect place to rest on a cold winter day and enjoy some afternoon treats.

You can find numerous Moroccan restaurants in this part of the city for food. One place we ate at on more than once occasion was Al-Faguara. They offered set menus for lunch featuring hummus, falafel, couscous, tajine, and of course, lots of baklava.

Let’s take a moment to talk about Granada’s main tourist attraction: the Alhambra!

The Alhambra is a massive complex of palaces, gardens and fortresses that once formed the citadel of the Nasrid Kingdom of Granada, which was the last Muslim dynasty to rule along the Iberian Peninsula from the years 1230 to 1492.

This is the one attraction you can’t miss when you visit Granada, and you’ll want to book your tickets well in advance as they can sell out during high season.

We spent half a day touring the grounds during which time we visited the Nasrid Palaces, the Palace of Charles the Fifth, the Alcazaba, and the Generalife.

We decided to find a cafe where we could indulge in a delicious Spanish breakfast.

Another spot we explored in Granada is Carrerra del Darro, a small lane that runs along the Darro River at the base of the Alhambra. This street is lined with arched-stone bridges and historic buildings.

We’ll leave you with a few scenes of Granada at night and one last glimpse of the Alhambra lit up against the evening sky.

We hope you enjoyed this video and that you got ideas of things do in Granada on your own visit.

This is part of our Travel in Spain video series showcasing Spanish food, Spanish culture and Spanish cuisine.

Visit Cádiz in Andalucía, Spain

Cádiz is a city and port in southwestern Spain. It is the capital of the province of Cádiz, one of eight which make up the autonomous community of Andalusia.

Cádiz, the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain and one of the oldest in western Europe, has been a principal home port of the Spanish Navy since the accession of the Spanish Bourbons in the 18th century. The city is a member of the Most Ancient European Towns Network. It is also the site of the University of Cádiz.

Situated on a narrow slice of land surrounded by the sea‚ Cádiz is, in most respects, a typically Andalusian city with a wealth of attractive vistas and well-preserved historical landmarks. The older part of Cádiz within the remnants of the city walls is commonly referred to as the Old Town (Spanish: Casco Antiguo). It is characterized by the antiquity of its various quarters (barrios), among them El Pópulo, La Viña, and Santa María, which present a marked contrast to the newer areas of town. While the Old City's street plan consists of narrow winding alleys connecting large plazas, newer areas of Cádiz typically have wide avenues and more modern buildings. In addition, the city is dotted with numerous parks where exotic plants flourish, including giant trees supposedly brought to Spain by Columbus from the New World.
