TOP 5 SIGHTS IN SPAIN
Cordoba is an exotic destination, even for local people. Colorful history and influences from the Arabic cultures reflect not just the architecture, but to the mystic ambiance of this area. Probably the most visited attraction in the area is the Mezquita (Spanish for Mosque) of Cordoba. It's one of the largest Islamic mosques in the world, and reflects many religious changes this area has undergone. Its hundreds of gigantic arches are truly impressive and makes the visit worthwhile. Another place to stop is the Alcazar castle, with its grand gardens and high walls. This former residence of Christian monarchs, site of the courts of the holy offices and later even a prison, represents a perfect image of Cordoban architecture through the ages.
This picturesque, whitewashed village only has a population of three thousand inhabitants, and yet it is one of the most beautiful places you will visit. This stunning small village is set in a mountainous landscape, with spectacular views to the Mediterranean sea and the North African coastline. The streets are narrow and steep, providing a real, authentic experience for all Touring Cars guests. Park your motorhome at the top of the village and take a short hike in the surroundings, filled with delightful flora and fauna. This is also a fantastic place to visit local taverns and taste typical cuisine of the Costa del Sol and the Malaga region with lots of seafood, meat on the grill, chorizo sausages, green peppers and lots of more.
Pristine empty beaches and one of the most beautiful national parks to explore, Huelva is considered as the mysterious corner of South-West Spain. This area is an area you want to see, if you value unspoiled nature. The eastern side is dominated by the Donana, the biggest protected marshlands in Spain, with virgin beaches and high dunes. On the west, you can see the small fishing villages, with local taverns providing an amazing selection of local delicacies.
4. Old town Seville
Postcard-like sceneries and a great ambiance. The city of Seville, and especially the old town, is full of stunning cobblestone streets, with old-fashioned street lamps creating an unforgettable atmosphere. White-washed houses, with colourful patios and picturesque plazas with tens of cafés, provide an excellent setting for a perfect afternoon. Take a ride on a horse-drawn carriage through the winding alleys and taste the local delicacies at the Plaza de Espana square. This is one of Seville's most impressive landmark, because of its scale and grandeur. This very impressive plaza covers an over 50,000 square-meter area, surrounded by Renaissance-style buildings and complemented by a canal flowing under the several footbridges. This "Venice of Seville" is one of the most romantic settings you will ever visit.
5. National Parks in Almeria
This paradise on the Mediterranean is still one of the only places free of mass tourism. This is where you will find the clearest and bluest water of the Mediterranean, and the softest sand for your toes. In other words, this is the perfect area for any outdoor activities, from swimming to hiking. This is Andalucia's largest protected area, which holds some of Europes´s most original geological features: extensive coral reefs, tiny rocky islands and, of course, teeming wildlife. This piece of paradise is considered as a subtropical desert and is the driest place in Europe.
