Magazine - 2009

Welcome to the Andalucia Highlights 2009!

<< 2010                                           2008 >>

This ezine is dedicated to southern Spain, an area well known for sun, sand, sea and endless expanses of inland olive groves and mountain ranges dotted by white pueblos. All this and so much more await you in this land of ancient history, culture and tradition. Explore the best of Andalucia right here in the pages of southern Spain's top online magazine.

Visit our current issue of Andalucia Magazine. Back issues of Andalucia Magazine can be viewed here too. Every month we bring you an updated edition of this top information source, focusing our spotlight on different aspects of Andalucian culture, travel and even famous writers, actors, artists, bullfighters and many other celebrities born in Andalucia or otherwise connected to southern Spain. Andalucia Magazine also brings you all the news about events including festivals and fair dates in Andalucia. Andalucia Magazine is your number one ezine for all things Andalucian.

Whether you are searching for information on Seville with it’s amazing annual Spring Fair, Cádiz and the carnival experience of a lifetime, or Granada with its world famous Alhambra, you’ll find it all right here in the pages of Andalucia Magazine and those of its publisher, We can also take you to Almería, where the vast expanses of Cabo de Gata’s beaches welcome visitors to its Natural Park. For excellent beaches, also try Huelva for deserted beaches that stretch to the Atlantic Ocean or Málaga for the busier most bustling Costa del Sol. If you prefer inland areas head for Jaen and spend a night in the Santa Catalina castle, which is today a Parador Hotel, or spend some time in Córdoba, not missing the city’s emblematic mosque.

There is so much to do and see in this part of the world. Visitors can never cover everything in a single trip, which is why so many decide to relocate to southern Spain either part time or permanently. If you decide to stay, Andalucia Magazine will also provide you with all the information you need for living in Andalucia whether you choose to retire here or to set up a business and enjoy a whole new life in the sun.
