Spa resorts in Andalucia

Spending your leisure time or holidays caring for your health is becoming more and more popular nowadays. This may be a cure for a medical condition, or an escape from the stress and anxiety that is ever far from modern urban life. There is nothing better than a period of rest and quiet. Andalucian spas have been becoming popular again over the last decade and the result has been a modernisation of facilities.

Bird Watching

Andalucía is a birdwatcher's paradise and attracts ornithologists throughout the year. The best time of the year, however, is during the spring, as this is when you can see many wintering species, together with those arriving for the summer months.

If you live in southern Spain and plan to travel either nationally or internationally, you would be wise to acquire a travel insurance policy that is adapted to your needs. A good travel insurance ensures that no trip leaves you overwhelmed with bills for unexpected delays, losses, accidents and medical conditions.

Owning a Car

The issues faced by owning a car and driving in Andalucia are similar to those faced in the rest of Spain. Some of these issues outlined below are different depending on whether you hold a license from Spain, or another EU country, or if you hold a non-EU license. Listed below is information on a variety of car and driver-related topics.

Arab Baths

One of the most relaxing traditions of Arab Spain are the baths, or “hammam” as they are called in Arabic. With so many years of moorish rule and culture, the city of Granada was a natural starting point for the return of this long lost custom.

Bullfighting as we know it today, started in the village squares, and became formalised, with the building of the bullring in Ronda in the late 18th century. From that time, it began to follow a particular sequence of events: the entrance of the bull, the picador, the banderilleros, and finally the matador (bullfighter). Many of the picadors' horses were injured in the early days, so these heavy horses now wear protection.
