Our Mission

The large and wide Andalucia is the place where Arabs used to reign for hundreds of years; where flamenco was born; and where Christopher Columbus took off on his great voyages. The traditions of this region – including bullfighting – fascinated the great writer Ernest Hemingway; the famous painter Pablo Picasso grew up here; and the Hollywood star was born here. 

Andalucia – one of the largest regions of Spain and most populated. The cities of the region are of exquisite beauty: the regional capital Seville; Granada, known for its Fortress of Alhambra; Córdoba – ruled for many years by the Arabs; the port of Huelva, where the Age of Discovery had its beginning; the tourist capital Málaga and many other cities and towns with their mix of Roman, Muslim, Christian and traditional Spanish heritage.

It is also varied geographically – its plains soon turn into the mountains of Sierra Nevada (second in Europe only to the Alps in terms of height), where one can even go skiing on warm Andalusian winters. The Sierra Nevada National Park has many violent rivers, deep ravines, rocky slopes and clear lakes, which are located between the snow-covered peaks. For skiers, hikers, mountain bikers and campers , it’s heaven.

Andalucia's physical and geographical characteristics are consistent with those of pasturelands and other grasslands that can be used for extensive grazing, and covers districts with particular features that distinguish it from other geographical areas: geophysical characteristics and soils, climate, rainfall, hours of sunshine, native flora and fauna and pastoral products. The area contains plains and peneplains with an altitude of 200-800 m / 656-2,624 ft, surrounded by mountain ranges of varying heights and the foothills of the Baetic and mountain systems, with major ranges.

Average annual temperatures are 16-17ºC / 60.8-62.6ºF. Average January temperatures are 6.8-8.1ºC / 44.2-46.5ºF. The high temperatures in summer provide a contrast with winter frosts
