Andalusia will blow your mind, Maybe you’re thinking, “Spain is Spain. What’s the big deal about this Part of it?” let me take you in one week where you can visit all the highlights, including the major cities of Seville, Granada, Ronda. Córdoba.

If you’ve landed in Seville as your getaway to Spain, it’d be wise to rent a car and launch your tour from there.

Days 1 & 2: Seville

On the morning of Day 1, Seville, the capital of Andalusia, Check into a hotel for 2 nights, I stayed at Sacristia de Santa Ana Hotel, This 18th-century house is located in Plaza de la Alameda, In Seville’s Old Town. You can walk to central Seville in around 15 minutes, A regular bus service leaves from a stop 200 m from the hotel. The old town is a great choice for travelers interested in architecture, tapas, and food.

Finally, cap your day by having dinner in a typical Sevillana restaurant and taking in a flamenco show if you’re still standing.
