Andalucia is, in many ways, the very essence of Spain. There are sun-dappled, biscuit-coloured plazas – drowsing in the midday heat, then lit up by night-long fiestas. There are operatic heroines and guitar-toting troubadours. Orange blossom adorns the trees while olive groves pattern the land to a hazy horizon. There are horses that dance, matadors that dodge and weave, and flamenco dancers whose guile and grace confound in an electrifying blur. However romantic and hackneyed all this may sound, it’s there in spades; if not around every corner, then at least never far from reach, in a region imbued by the spirit and the passion of its people. Colourful and exotic, and enhanced by a fusion of Mediterranean and North African flavours, this heady blend is responsible for some fabulous creations, from the tastiest Moorish recipes to some of the finest, most exuberant palaces in Europe.

Stroll along riverside promenades and sashay from tapas bar to tapas bar in Seville; admire the striped arches of the Mezquita and peek into flower-bedecked courtyards in Córdoba; discover the deeply traditional Albaicin quarter and marvel at the Alhambra in Granada; stroll onto the bridge in Ronda to appreciate how the town spectacularly straddles a deep gorge; learn to distinguish your fino  from your oloroso  sherry in Jerez; and delve into the maritime history of Cádiz, gateway to the Americas.
