Perhaps the most unique feature of this fascinating region are the remains of its Moorish past.

The Moors were a mixture of Berbers and Arabs who came to Spain from North Africa, through the Straits of Gibraltar and occupied the peninsula - which they called Al Andalus - for more than seven centuries, the year 710 when they first landed in Tarifa.

Within just four years they had virtually conquered the entire country.

In the southern regions were established Cordoba, Seville and Granada, one of the most sophisticated civilisations of the Middle Ages.

Each of these Andalusian capitals boasts startling monuments of their remains, the most memorable is undoubtedly, Granada Alhambra.
