Estepona’s cobbled narrow streets still hold a traditional Andalusian charm with many Spanish cafes, bars, quaint shops and bodegas. There is a dramatic view of the Sierra Bermeja mountains from the golden sandy beaches, promenade, fishing port & marina.
Marbella’s Casco Antiguo (old town) with its narrow white washed lanes, old Churches, romantic squares and fashion boutiques, can be found within the ruins of an Old Arab wall. With lovely beaches, pretty boulevards and plenty of places to shop as well as eat, it may be hard to imagine that Marbella was once a small fishing village.
Puerto Banus is well known for its marina of super-yachts, designer boutiques & El Corte Ingles department store.
Ronda, famous for its dramatic views over the deep El Tio gorge and the Serrania de Ronda beyond, is one of the most spectacular places in Andalusia. The old town retains much of its historical Moorish charm with some interesting buildings.
Malaga, the birthplace of Picasso with over 30 museums, a captivating old town & monuments, arty Soho district, modernised port with trendy restaurants, bars & boutiques, and superb sandy beaches. It has it all!
Seville is the largest City in Southern Spain and one of the largest historical centers of culture in Europe. The city of Carmen, Don Juan and Figaro, it is full of passion,
flamboyance and charisma with a fascinating history. It was from a port close to Seville where Columbus started his voyage to discover a new world.
Granada is home to the magnificent Alhambra, a Moorish citadel and Palace, the most renowned building in Andalusian Islamic history. Thought to be Andalucía’s most trendy and
youthful city, it looks attractively alpine with its backdrop of white-capped Sierra Nevada peaks, yet is only one hour’s drive from the warm Mediteranean coast.
Cordoba was the capital of Europe in the 11th century, with Jews, Muslims and Christians all living peacefully together, and a place where great Philosophers, scientists and artists emerged from. A warren of narrow streets surrounds the amazing Mezquita that displays a once worldly and sophisticated Islamic culture. Explore easily on foot and eat well in this most attractive city, with its architectural wonders, peaceful plazas and pretty patios… my personal favourite! (Debbie)
