Europe Trip – Spain – Andalucia or Southern Spain

ANDALUCIA PICASA PHOTO ALBUM (325 photos)

We were  in Andalucia from the last week in January until half february and during these three weeks, we followed the Spanish coastline, with excursions and side-trips inland.

We saw big beautiful cities like Sevilla, Cádiz, Granada with the world famous Alhambra and the piece of England called Gibraltar. Exploring them was an adventure but each time we were pleasantly surprised.

We visited the white villages or pueblos blancos, each of them unique, clinging to sheer rock cliffs or spread out over steep hills. Arcos de la Frontera, Zahara de la Sierra, Olvera and Vejer de la Frontera each will leave nice memories.

We spent time with the kids on the beaches of Southern Spain, white and sandy like Tarifa. Once further east and crossing from the Atlantic Ocean into the Mediterranean Sea, the beaches were different each time: white or grey sand, little pebbles, big pebbles, gravel..

And of course we had our share of places of the beaten track or less visited like abandoned coppermines (Minas de Rio Tinto), a complete wild west cowboy town where everybody is on horseback (El Rocio), huge and well preserved dolmens in Antequerra, little villages in the Southern Sierra Nevada Alpujarras region, or the southwest-USA-like landscapes of the only desert in Spain and location of more westerns than we know.

We thoroughly enjoyed it despite the sometimes colder weather, and head further north.
