Spain is home to many beautiful cities, each with its own unique blend of historic charm, modern vibrancy, and exotic flair. It can be tough to decide which city to visit when there are so many great options, but Andalucia is definitely worth considering. This southern region of Spain is home to some of the country’s most interesting cities, and here are just a few of our favorites.




Malaga has long been known as a port city with Mediterranean roots, but it now has so much more to offer. From its culture and history to its architecture and sandy beaches, there is something for everyone in this city. You can easily spend a day shopping, dining, visiting museums, and lying on the beach here. The city is also dominated by the Gibralfaro hill, on which stands the 11th century Alcazaba fortified Moorish palace.


About halfway up the hill, there is a 14th-century castle that has a perfect view of the city and its bay.


The bottom of the Gibralfaro, where a Roman amphitheatre and the city centre meet, forms the point at which past and present come together. If you cross the street, you’ll enter the old town, which is a wonderful maze of squares, streets and pedestrian shopping areas that are lined with elegant buildings. The cathedral, which was built in Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles, and the Picasso Museum, which is home to the works of Malaga’s most famous son, crown this area.



A little ways down the road is the Carmen Thyssen Museum, as well as the Centre Pompidou at the chic Muelle Uno portside shopping and entertainment area, just two of many interesting places in what is quickly becoming one of Europe’s cultural gems. Situated between the center and the port is a fashionable boulevard flanked on both sides by a tree-lined promenade.


Sleek buildings are interspersed with the verdant plants of botanical gardens, an area that transitions into beaches and the “La Malagueta” suburb.




Granada is a beautiful city located in Andalucia. This ancient city is known for its association with Moorish Spain and the Alhambra palace-fortress. The Alhambra is surrounded by fragrant gardens and is a complex located on a hilltop.


The Alhambra is located on a hilltop and overlooks the Albaicín, which is a neighborhood with many winding streets, squares, and houses that have a medieval atmosphere.


The Alhambra is a fortress located in the city of Granada, Spain. The fortress is situated on a hilltop and overlooks the city. The Alhambra is a popular tourist destination due to its architecture and history.




Cordoba, located on the Guadalquivir River and straddling a curve, embodies Andalucia’s glorious past. The city’s prominent role in Spanish history is primarily due to its strategic location at the entrance to Andalucia. Famous leaders such as Julius Caesar, Abd al-Rahman III and Ferdinand and Isabella fought to control the city at one time or another, so it’s not surprising that Cordoba has been destroyed and rebuilt more times than any other city in Andalucia.


Cordoba’s Grand Mosque is its most famous landmark. The mosque, which is the symbol of the city, is located in the medieval Judería (Jewish quarter). The Judería is surrounded by other baroque edifices such as the Reyes Alcazares palace and the 14th-century Torre de Calahorra.


This city has many features that recall the days when it was the last Moorish capital of Andalucia. These include Arab-style baths and spas, Moroccan-inspired tetería tearooms, and private homes with gardens, courtyards, and rooftop terraces.


The Albaicín district provides Granada with a rich and elegant atmosphere. The city’s historic center is full of grand churches, imposing public buildings, and beautiful monuments. In many ways, Granada is a typical lively and impressive southern Spanish city. It is also the official birthplace of the tapa.


You will have plenty of chances to experience this communal form of dining at the various tapas bars and eateries located in one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations. Check out our comprehensive guide to Granada here.




The city of Sevilla, located in the Andalucia region of Spain, is a lively and historic place. The city center, situated on the east bank of the Guadalquivir river, is home to some of the most impressive architecture and landmarks in the country.


The buildings are a reminder of the centuries during which Central and South America’s wealth flowed into Spain through the city. The city was not only Spain’s main port but also one of Europe’s richest cities at the time.


Seville is located in the heart of Andalucía and is known for its bullfighting, flamenco music, and vivacious street life. The Guadalquivir river borders Seville and the13th-century Torre de Oro, one of Seville’s most famous monuments, guards the town. El Arenal used to be the bustling port area of the town with munitions stores, artillery headquarters, and shipyards.


The Plaza de Toros de la Maestranza, a dazzling white bullring, has been the site of bullfights, or corridas, for the past two centuries.


This is one of the largest historic centres in Europe, which has not only elegant shopping promenades, but also more tightly woven streets of an older area. You can find Moorish-style baths and teahouses, the stunning cathedral and its famous Giralda tower, the Reales Alcazares palatial complex, and a host of quaint tapas bars and restaurants that form the heart of a lively Andalucian social scene.


The Parque María Luisa is a must-see for anyone visiting Seville. Although it is relatively new, the park was designed for the Ibero American World Trade Exposition of 1929 and its buildings are absolutely stunning. Today, the park is home to embassies, museums, military headquarters, and various cultural and educational institutions.


The grand five-star Hotel Alfonso XIII and crescent-shaped Plaza de España are the most striking features, but in summer the terraces of the old exposition pavilions come alive with street performers and live dance music that goes on until the early morning.

We have arrived at the Andalusian shore in Cadiz once again – although this time it is on the Atlantic side and Costa de la Luz. Cadiz is situated on a peninsula that sticks out into the sea, and is attached to the mainland by a thin strip of land. Because of this, Cadiz is surrounded by water on three sides. The port looks very different from other cities in southern Spain; pastel-coloured houses surround a yellow tiled cathedral which looks more like it belongs in Cuba than in Spain


Favoured by its location, the city was long the port of call for ships returning with riches from the Spanish colonies in the Americas. Developing apace with the maritime commerce of Cadiz were the watchtowers that were built onto the flat roofs of merchants’ houses. Such was the competition among them that they employed teams of watchmen to look out for incoming ships.


The city’s location near the Spanish colonies in the Americas made it a popular port for ships. The city developed quickly, and the flat roofs of merchants’ houses were replaced with watchtowers. The towers were so tall that teams of watchmen were needed to keep an eye out for incoming ships.


At its height, there were just over 160 towers in the city, 126 of which are still standing today. The most famous tower, the Torre de Tavira, was made the official watchtower of the city in 1778. Today it is a popular tourist attraction, with a spectacular view of the city and its surroundings from the rooftop camera obscura.


Cadiz appears as a floating city of North African design, with its sea of flat roofs, when viewed from here. This is just one more aspect of the many interesting features Andalucian cities have to offer in terms of history, culture, and enigma. Most importantly, these cities are brimming with life.
