Places to Visit

Malaga

Mijas Pueblos

Situated in the lowlands of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range and surrounded by pine forest, Mijas has managed to retain much of its "white village" charm, with narrow winding streets, dazzling whitewashed walls and breathtaking views. There are dozens of small shops with gifts made by local artisans and a large choice of tapas bars and restaurants. You can't help but see the famous Mijas donkey taxis, carrying scores of tourists around the village every day. It is an ideal locations for taking an early evening stroll before dinner.

Malaga

Malaga is a city with a thriving port and busy traffic, but exploring back streets and discovering an intriguing choice of shops, restaurants and tapas bars can be fun. There is an historic side too with a fortress that dates back to 1065. Near here is a castle that was rebuilt by the Moors in the 14th century and is now a traditional Parador (hotel) which is worth a visit if only for the views. Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga and the Museo Picasso is worth a visit.

Cordoba

Cordoba lies in the geographical centre of Andalucía. It is known for its historical Arab and Jewish monuments, such as the famous Mosque, considered to be the best example of an Islamic church in the world, the Jewish district dating from the 11th century, the synagogue and the Roman bridge. This was once one of the greatest cities of the western world and a stroll around the Juderia with its narrow cobbled streets, wrought iron gates and tiny workshops is worthwhile.

Granada

Situated in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Granada was once the capital of a Moorish kingdom and a visit to the famous Alhambra Palace is a must. Try to get there early ahead of the coaches and crowds and book an entrance ticket on-line in advance because numbers are restricted each day

Seville

The capital of Andalucia and steeped in history and culture. The city is compact and most of the sights can be found in or near to the city centre. The most popular sights are the cathedral and La Giralda, the Museo de Bellas Artes, the Plaza de Toros (Seville's 18th century bullring) and the area along the riverfront known as El Arenal. In this area you will find the bullring, the Torre del Oro and many bars and restaurants. The Santa Cruz district, the old Jewish Quarter is a warren of narrow alleys and patios and has long been regarded as the most picturesque part of Seville. Please note that the city can become very hot in the summer months and it is probably best avoided in July and August

Ronda

One of the most spectacularly located towns in Spain. Its position made it one of the last Moorish settlements to fall to the Christians in the late 15th century. Ronda is famous for the 'Puente Nuevo' (new bridge) - built across the Tajo gorge in the late 18th century- and the Plaza de Toros, one of the oldest bullrings in Spain. The town, with its cobbled alleys and whitewashed walls, is steeped in history. The drive is scenic and dramatic and the surrounding countryside is ideal for walking, riding and mountain biking

Marbella & Puerto Banus

Home to the rich and famous! Marbella itself has a lovely shopping and historic area centred around Orange Square. Puerto Banus is a luxurious and cosmopolitan resort and the marina with its mega-yachts and celebrities is a 'must' place to visit. The beaches have exquisite white sand and there is a wide array of expensive bars, restaurants and designer shops for you to enjoy.

Gibraltar

The queue at the border to get in (and out) of Gibraltar can be horrific. It is far better to park your car and walk across the border (don't forget your passport), hop on one of the many regular buses and in 5 minutes you will be in Main Street. You can do a Rock tour by minibus with a guide of the lower areas of Gibraltar including the tunnels and Europa Point and a visit to St.Michael's Cave. On the way down the Rock, enjoy the fabulous views of Africa, Gibraltar and Spain whilst visiting the famous Barbary apes.

Nerja Caves

A trip to Andalucía would not be complete without a visit to the Nerja Caves, one of Spain's most popular and spectacular historical sites. The magnificent Nerja Caves - Cuevas de Nerja - are a series of huge caverns stretching for almost five kilometres and home to the world's largest stalagmite - a 32 metre high column. The caves are not only famous for their archaeological sites and stone formations, but also for the International Festival of Music and Dance, which is repeated every year during the month of July & August.

Morocco

Experience the magic of Morocco on a day trip to Tangier. Morocco lies just across the Mediterranean, but this exotic North African gem feels like a world away! If you wish to visit Morocco, it is probably best to take one of the many organised day trips available from Fuengirola. You will go by coach to Algeciras and then take the ferry across the Straits to Tangier.
