Andalucía

Autumn 2011 I made a road trip through Andalusia. I had a wonderful time, despite catching a cold on the second day of the trip. Beautiful villages, a beautiful landscape, nice weather, great food, interesting architecture, what more could you wish for? Included here are some of my favourite photos. Note that Córdoba and Granada have separate galleries.

Vejer de la Frontera

Alájar is a small, idyllic town in the Sierra de Aracena
Rio Tinto Mines Andalusia
The Rio Tinto Mines are the oldest of their kind in the world. The mines that are still in operation are quite photogenic as well.

Needless to say I was delighted to finally visit the Real Alcazar in Sevilla
Jerez de la Frontera
Jerez de la Frontera is an easily overlooked town in Andalusia, but it's quite nice. The Alcazar and the cathedral are worth visiting.
