ANDALUCIA: Almeria, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaen, Malaga, Sevilla.


Andalucia is a fascinating place for its spectacular Moorish monuments, beautiful white hill towns, sparkling blue coast and natural beauty of its mountainous country. The Moors were a mixed race of Berbers and Arabs that occupied Spain (Al-Andalus) for almost eight hundred years. They developed the most sophisticated civilization in the Middle Ages, centered in Sevilla, Cordoba and Granada. Every city, town and village, is a wonderful mixture of Christian and Muslim influence. Granada preserves the most beautiful Moorish monuments, the Alhambra palace, being the largest and most sensual building in Europe. Córdoba's old mosque with a cathedral built inside it and the spectacular remains of the ancient Moorish city of Medina Azahara should be regarded as a must-see whislt Sevilla boasts the most spectacular of all Gothic cathedrals and largest church in the world as well as its Moorish Alcazar.
The white towns surrounding Ronda, offer an unspoiled view into Andalucian life with their surrounding natural beauty, delicious home-cooking and stunning appearance-clustered beneath Moorish/Christian castles and churches. There are some terrific walks in this area (as well as all over 
The mountains in the Sierra Nevada and, less known, the Sierra Morena (particularly its western projection in the Sierra de Aracena, in Huelva) offer good trekking and skiing, while the coast between Tarifa and Cadiz on the Atlantic has some of the best beaches in Spain. Beware of Europes most developed resort area on the Costa del Sol as it is hard to find peace and natural beauty, without paying a high price. Finally, Spains largest and most impressive nature reserve, Coto Donana, can be found near Huelva, Cadiz and Sevilla..
It is known as one of the most high-spirited regions of Spain as it is home to flamenco dancing, bullfighting and a gigantic April carnivals (Semana Santa) and romerias.

This group is meant to be a meeting point for the CS Community who are living in Andalucia, for those who are passing by and for everyone who just wants to keep in touch. It's also a place to share information, discuss, propose happenings, meetings or simply to say hello.

Please also check the local Andalusian Groups like Sevilla, Malaga, Granada, Cordoba, Ciudad de Cadiz, Huelva, Jaen and Almeria.

Whoever you are, wherever you are coming from, we want to hear your story. Andalucia welcomes all CouchSurfers!!!
