11 Mar SPAIN – ANDALUSIAN ADVENTURE
Andalusia is the uniting bridge between two continents, Africa and Europe, and a meeting point between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. To the south is the Atlantic Ocean, washing the shores of the Huelva and Cádiz provinces, while the Mediterranean Sea mimics its actions on the coasts of Cádiz, Málaga, Granada and Almería. The Guadalquivir River and its fertile valley by the same name meets the Genil creating the physical borders of Andalusia. From its source in the East, in the Cazorla Mountains, to its mouth in the west, on the marshes of Doñana Natural Park, the Guadalquivir is a fountain of life for the land it crosses. A vertex between Europe and Africa, this land has been coveted over much of history by the many cultures that have found their way here even in prehistoric times.
The sparkling Islamic, renaissance and Baroque architecture of its most important buildings – castles, fortresses, and monasteries, sprinkled throughout the region, provide a complete cultural heritage of enormous transcendence.
