The challenge when visiting Andalusia is often shortlisting what to see and do. Millions of people visit the region every year and most of those will be visiting the Cathedral of Seville, the Mezquita of Cordoba, and the Alhambra in Granada – which all feature in the top 15 monuments in Spain. Although we adore these places, these busy sights aren’t always what make a holiday really special. Our clients most-treasured memories in Andalusia often take place at the more unusual locations…
Held in the wonderful Botanic Gardens of Cordoba, the 13th International Sephardi music festival in Spain showcases the different traditions of Sephardic culture. This year’s programme of events includes concerts by Spanish and international artists, seminars, wine-tasting, cooking demonstrations, dance workshops, a children’s storytime and a documentary screening.
If you’re interested in architecture and looking for something a bit different – how about a vibrant city with a rich history of harmony between cultures? Come and discover Zaragoza in Aragon and more importantly the incredible Mudejar Zaragoza architecture.
We blog a lot about food. And museums. And places to travel to. But there’s another activity that most of us do when on holidays – that we haven’t touched on recently and that’s shopping. Love it or loathe it – if you’re looking to buy a quality keepsake in Spain – Spanish shoes are a pretty safe bet. Here’s what we’ve been highlighting to our clients ever since Totally Spain set up as a Spain-based travel specialist back in the year 2000.
