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…
