An important Roman city and Islamic cultural center in the Middle Ages where many different cultures lived in complete harmony, Córdoba is a delight to explore, and a visit to world-famous La Mezquita should be at the top of any traveler’s bucket list. With its intruiging taverns, the city is a foodie mecca: travel through time with the many dishes that make up the fabric of Córdoba.
A village far above sea level and with a great appreciation of the outdoors, a visit to Sedella is done absolutely right with a hike or bike through the Sierra de Tejeda mountain range, studded with blooming almond trees, and a visit to the Arab-influenced town centre for some traditional roscos al horno and a glass of homemade red wine.
Rapidly emerging as a counterpart to Madrid and Barcelona in terms of arts and fine dining, Málaga is becoming known as Andalucía’s new cultural hub. Tastefully restored historic streets studded with bars and restaurants ranging from traditional to contemporary-chic, this is definitely the place to go to try some local moscatel with a bright, fresh seafood dish.
Sevilla’s edgier, more alluring and mysterious cousin, Granada, is home to the Albaycín and the prodigious Alhambra of the Nasrid dynasty – the “Jewel of Granada.” However, this city has even more to discover. Narrow, stepped streets lined with buildings in the typical mudéjar style seep history from every doorframe, and with each tapa you will discover yet another facet of this intriguing city.
