Andalucia.com wishes you a prosperous 2018.
This year Andalucia.com has come of age - we are now 21 years old!
We've seen many important events and announcements over 2017, and as always our team of professional journalists and photographers, all based in Andalucia, has been out and about researching the region's history and attractions.
One of the most extraordinary, and surely least-known, stories about the British in Andalucia which we uncovered this year was that of Lady Mary Herbert de Powis, a Welsh aristocrat and speculator who became a mining entrepreneur in Rio Tinto (Huelva) in the 1700s.
Lonely Planet announced that top of their list of Best Cities to visit in 2018 was Seville - coinciding with the city's Año Murillo celebrations for next year. This exciting news has already brought considerable international media attention to the Andalucian capital.
Major news on the culinary front, with the region's first three-Michelin-starred restaurant - Aponiente in El Puerto de Santa Maria. Proof, if it was needed, that Andalucia's chefs and cuisine have now earned their rightful place in the highest echelons of world gastronomy. You can see all 16 Michelin-starred restaurants in Andalucia here.
Andalucia.com was delighted to sponsor up-and-coming American singer-songwriter Mozart Dee, who played two concerts at different venues in Malaga province, in June.
We are always updating our site, with new pages on towns and villages around Andalucia, so be sure to check out our recently added pages.
