Cordoba

Built by the Romans, it preserves most Roman architectural elements from any city of Andalusia. It is also the city with the highest temperatures, as in summer they exceed 40oC.

Cadiz

From the most famous coastal areas of Andalusia. The most beautiful and popular beach of Cadiz is the small Playa de la Caleta, which is located between the castles of San Sebastian and Santa Catalina.

Malaga

The birthplace of Picasso and the most populous city of the Costa del Sol shared between neighborhoods of the historic center, which bear witness to the greatness of the 19th century and the bustling harbor cruise.

Where to eat

Taverna El Panduro

The space is small but the dishes are original, delicious and affordable. From the menu that is written on the wall you should try the popular Solomillo (tenderloin) or green risotto.

Contenedor

With hip atmosphere and loyal fans it is located in the alternative neighborhood of La Alameda. It is somewhat more of an upscale style (and more expensive) than the other options in the area and the only one that offers a seasonal menu.
