Almond trees add a special charm to the landscapes of Andalucia - there are over 150,000 hectares of the trees in total, many in the Axarquia region of Malaga province and around the Sierra Subbetica in Cordoba.

Their willowy, wispy branches and strong trunks grace hillsides and craggy cliffside areas, while the pink and white colours of their blossom, from late January to mid-February, cover the countryside in a soft blanket. Hills of almond blossom offer an unforgettable sight - well worth seeing if you ever have the opportunity. Ronda, Velez Blanco, Guaro and the villages around the Sierra Nevada are also great locations for almond trees, they just love to grow on hilly slopes, don´t forget your camera.
