Andalusia - the land of the sun - is one of the most diverse provinces in the south-west of Spain.

The landscape ranges from sandy unspoilt beaches, green pastured fields with grazing bulls, snow-capped mountains in the Sierra Nevada, natural parks with cork trees in Alcornocales, pine forests and olive groves to the well designed golf courses of Novo Sancti Petri.

Small picture post card villages scattered along the Ruta Blanca (the route of the white villages) with enchanting views and southern passion for the good things in life and towns like Seville, Córdoba and Granada with wealth of different cultures and monuments, reflecting the exciting history of Spain : the Gothic cathedral in Seville, the palace of the caliph and the Mezquita, proud representative of the Islamic world in Córdoba, the Alhambra, the Moorish castle in Granada. Cádiz, the province's capital, is with its 3.000 years of history the oldest city in Europe.
Even shopping here is an exciting experience, like a stroll through the old town of Cádiz, its narrow streets with all kinds of shops and boutiques, always lively places where street cafés and tapa bars invite you to relax or a visit of the market halls, where fishermen loudly offer their catch of the day and a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables, delicious Iberian ham, pickled olives and spices are laid out to tempt you.

Costa de la Luz

The Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) is one of the most beautiful regions at the Atlantic coast, not destroyed by the mass tourism as many other areas, stretching from the border with Portugal to its southernmost point at Gibraltar.

The proximity to Africa and the warm Gulf Stream determine the climate. With over 3,200 hours of sunshine a year, the Costa de la Luz has the sunshine record in Spain. Even the winters are mild with temperatures around 20 °.


Chiclana de la Frontera, a grown town with originally backgrounds from agriculture and fishing, is located on the Atlantic coast of Cadiz and the wine route, well known for its good wine (Fino de Chiclana) and its healing water (Sources of Fuente Armaga). The structure of the town, its narrow streets and alleyways with flower-filled courtyards and its architecture are typical for Andalusia.
Traditions and old customs of South-Andalusia, like the bullfights, the pilgrimages, the wines, the flamenco and last but not least, the evening tour through the tapa bars are part of the daily lives of their inhabitants.

Off the coast of Chiclana lays the island of Sancti Petri with the famous Temple of Hercules, built by the Phoenicians. On top of its ruins, in the XIII century, the lighthouse and the castle of Sancti-Petri were built.
