The secrets of Andalucía
The Andalucían region epitomizes all that comes into mind when we think of Spain – its confluence of Moorish and Christian architecture, flamenco dancers, cuisine, bull fighting, and exquisite architecture – to name just a few. This beautiful region is resplendent with influences of its Iberian, Phoenician, Greek and Roman past, and is home to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Alhambra of Granada – the royal palace and fortress described by Moorish poets as ‘a pearl set in emeralds’, the Alcazar of Seville – a royal palace and Moorish fort, the Historic City Centre of Cordoba, the Renaissance Monumental Ensembles of Úbeda and Baeza, and 68 items of cave art in Almeria, Granada and Jaen provinces, amongst others. The Andalucians take their food seriously, and the finest meat, fruits and vegetables go into making its many dishes. The varied climatic conditions are also favourable for growing the freshest produce, hence making gastronomy in Andalucía an experience unsurpassed.
