    Granada is one of the pearls of Spain, most visited by tourists from all the world.

    The long-time capital of Moorish Andalusia has to offer the most important reminds of this epoch in Spanish history, with the world famous "Alhambra" at the top of the list. Walk through beautiful gardens, charming narrow streets filled with flowers, sit down in one of those typical taverns and breath the centuries of history around you anywhere. There are gypsies singing "Flamenco", and don't miss to visit their famous "Cuevas" - caves - in the mountain of the monastery of Sacromonte where some of them really live still nowadays making magnificent artisany.

    Granada's popular festivals, based as well on Moorish as Christian tradition, are most at-tractive. The city is located at the foot of the "Sierra Nevada", the Iberian Peninsula's highest mountain-massif with great posssibilities for winter-sports. The highest peak is the "Mulhacén" at 3478 meters. On the other hand it is not far from the Mediterranean sea, so Granada is a great place to visit in any season.

    Bathed by the waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Malaga combines culture, gastronomy and history with the possibility to spend time at the beach or going hiking. You have the possibility to visit the famous Picasso Museum, the Roman theatre and the Alcazaba-Gibralfaro and relax at the beautiful beaches of Malaga, that’s all in just one city which combines modern and innovative perfection with tradition, history and culture.

    Within Andalucía, Malaga is the driving force and is seen as the economic capital of the region. This is due its strategic geographical location in the south of Europe and close to North Africa. Furthermore Malaga is an open city for everyone and not influenced by mass tourism, this is why Malaga is the perfect city to enjoy the Andalusian awareness of life.

    In the recent years, Malaga became one of the fastest growing cities in Spain and this boom still continues significant. As one of the world’s most attractive tourist destinations, the city attracts every year over eight million tourists. Due to its natural beauty, wealthy area, its costs, parks, gardens, cultural heritages and excellent facilities, the province of Malaga is a unique location in which to host all manner of events.

    Seville certainly is one of the most beloved places by visitors to Spain. Although today Moorish influence is architectonically most evident - Andalusia was occupied by Moors for about 800 years - it has been a cultural center long before.

    The fertility of this land and its favorised climate with mild winters and about 3000 hours of sun per year made Phoenicians and Carthaginians settle here. Later came Romans, like almost to any place in Europe, and two of their emperors, Trajan and Hadrian, in fact were born here.

    Also later on Seville was the home of famous and infamous figures of history, the legendary "Don Juan" started from here to conquer the hearts of women across all Europe, while Columbus started from a port close to Seville to discover a new world. Prosper Merimée's "Carmen", who couldn't make her decision between the officer Don José and the bullfighter Escamillo - the consequences you can watch still today in opera houses - was a worker in Seville's old tobacco factory.

    By the way, this factory serves today as University, a fact that might give you a glimpse on Andalusian talent for improvisation.
