Majestic, inspiring and somewhat mysterious, the region of Andalucia’s rich history is ever-present today. Easy-to-drive highways link towns nestled in otherworldly terrain, passing by vibrant fields of sunflowers and mammoth wind turbines along the way. There are open-air flamenco performances to get your heart racing, a food scene to rival all others in Europe, and the Costa del Sol’s beaches to rejuvenate at. I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
