Don't get us wrong, all spanish cities are pretty cool. But we think the best are located in the south region, most of which is in the state of Andalucia. There's a special charm and magical presence that envelops you when you're here.
In no particular order, here are the key places to visit in southern spain travel-ing.
There is no trip planning anxiety here!
Believe me, there’s a lot to do, but we’ll boil it down to just the top of the list. We will guide you to the best!
So whether you are going to stay for one night or ten, you'll need to know the best options for your trip to Spain.
If you rather have a planned tour, we've got info on that too. It's certainly the easiest way to go as it requires minimal planning beforehand. Here is a quick overview.
The hotels in the south region are so charming. You'll get the best experience if you stay in a locally run establishment in the heart of the city center. They are simple, but make you feel like a local! If you prefer luxurious accommodations, you'll find some great picks. Many Spain hotels provide free breakfast and this creates a great start to your day.
I could go on forever about Spain's food. They seem to have quite the knack for the best small dishes that not only satisfy but are pleasing to the eye. My favorite tapas include tortilla de patatas and gazpacho, Andalucia's regional must-have's. Adam loves the Jamon Serrano with a nice glass of Sherry from Jerez de la Frontera.
While I find the shopping a bit expensive at times, I enjoy the unique style that the Spaniards have. I love the way they pair thier clothes together and I always find myself looking for something special to take home. You'll find the greatest boutiques full of gifts for your friends and family, and to really treat yourself to something special. From food to stylin' shoes, you'll find it all in the center of town.
There are enough things to do and attractions to fill numerous days of your southern spain travel trip. The Moorish and roman influence from the past reflects on the current cities today.
The amazing cathedrals, palaces, roman ruins and gardens are something that is not to be missed.
The flamenco shows are so fun. You feel the passion these dancers and musicians have from just a few feet away.
And let's not forget, the flamenco garb is something spectacular as well. From the hair to the shoes, it's quite magical.
No matter what your feelings are on bullfighting, you have to respect the culture and history behind it all- It's pretty amazing! Be sure to tour the bullring museums to see the Matador's outfits. And if you can catch a show, you won't regret it.
Don't be afraid of the train travel and taxi's. The Ave is the best train ever. Clean, neat and you can even get a snack, it's definitely our preferred method of travel. Spain buses are great too.
If you prefer to rent a car, the big international chains are available at numerous locations and we have never had an issue renting a vehicle from them. Even the small companies are reputable!
If you are coming to this region, be sure to look into taking a trip to close surrounding cities. It's easier then you think to get there, and you'll be amazed at what you find.
There’s so much to experience in this beautiful country. We happen to think it’s one of the most exciting places to visit and wanted to share our experiences with you. Let your trip in Spain begin with Southern Spain Travel!
