Holidays to Inland Andalucia: Overview

Inland Andalucia is a stunning and varied region with a range of attractions to include on a tailor made holiday, from the celebrated Moorish legacy of Granada, Seville and Cordoba to the tiny unspoiled villages and whitewashed towns of the interior - the famous pueblos blancos - and the rugged beauty of the Sierra Nevada. The beaches aren't bad either.

Andalucia's beautiful landscapes include more than 500 miles of coastline, much of it still unspoilt, the renowned wetlands of the Doñana National Park, and the only desert on the European continent.

Relax among the ancient olive groves and blossoming almond orchards of the rural heartland, where undulating hills and tiny terraced farms make up the panorama, or explore the many historic towns such as Ubeda and Ronda, as well as the famous attractions of Seville, Cordoba and Granada.

The winelands of Jerez and delicious local cuisine complete the picture of what must be the most enticing region of the Iberian Peninsula for a luxury holiday.

If You Do Three Things
A Tour of Cadiz

Wander around the cobbled streets of this 3,000-year-old city. Inhabited by the Romans and the Moors, and sacked by the British during the Crusades, Cadiz is packed with history. Head to the baroque Cadiz Cathedral boasting a golden dome best admired at sunset from the outskirts of the city. The 18th century watchtower, Torre Tavira, and the Mercado Central (full of fresh seafood) are also well worth a visit.

The White Towns of Andalucia

Explore the White Towns of Andalucia, whitewashed in the 19th century to stave off the sun's rays. Visit Arcos de la Frontera, the gateway to these unspoilt historical villages. Its narrow, winding streets and 11th century Moorish castle evoke powerful memories of the town's tragic history. Then stop at Vejer de la Frontera, also heavily influenced by the Moors and a tapas lover's paradise.
