The region of Andalucia is located in the south of Spain. Its provinces are Almeria, Malaga, Cadiz, Huelva, Seville, Cordoba, Granada and Jaen. Portugal is situated in the west, Extremadura in the north, Castilla-La Mancha and Murcia northeast. Two major rivers cross the Community from east to west, the Guadiana and the Guadalquivir River with its tributary, the Genil, which originate in Sierra de Cazorla (Jaen) and Castilla-La Mancha respectively and flow into the Atlantic Ocean.
Andalucia has two regions: the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. The Atlantic coastline, the coast of La Luz from Huelva and Cadiz is more windy and cool as the Mediterranean. The Mediterranean area, comprising the coast of Almeria, the Costa Tropical and Costa del Sol, is much warmer and with calmer water. The climate also varies greatly by region. But ultimately it is a beautiful coast, with excellent hotels and magnificent facilities of all kinds.
Its terrain and scenery are very different and varied given the vastness of its territory (87,268 km2) and whether it is coast, countryside or mountains. Because we can be talking about the high peaks and mountains of Sierra Nevada and the Betic System, the barren and volcanic landscapes of the Tabernas Desert or the fertile Guadalquivir valley.
Its history is deeply marked by the culture of Al-Andalus and there are traces of it in all its cities and towns, as with the gastronomy and some customs. The character of its people is cheerful and open.
Andalucia combines tradition, folklore and deep religious feeling with tourism, its famous beaches and the liveliness of its coasts in an overwhelming manner. It is a very attractive mixture that every year attracts millions of visitors.
