The first overnight stop on our road-trip through Andalusia was in the small but historically rich city of Ronda, Spain. Ronda is famously cut in half by the Guadalevín River, which carved out the El Tajo canyon. Ronda’s Old Town is precariously perched on the cliffs of the 100-metre canyon and is the perfect stopping place on a tour of the Pueblo Blancos of Andalusia, Spain.
Gibraltar is weird. It’s owned by England, yet dangles off the end of Spain. You have to drive across an airport runway to get to it, and its main feature is a giant rock riddled with caves and inhabited by monkeys. We couldn’t wait to discover all the weird things to do in Gibraltar!
I had admired the photo in dozens of travel books – row upon row of columns topped with chequered arches. Shadow and light playing with each other as people stand, dwarfed under the soaring ceilings. Before I even knew where it was, I knew I had to visit the Cathedral-Mosque of Córdoba, Spain.
The final Moorish palace of our travels in Andalusia was the Real Alcázar of Seville. Just when we thought we were ‘palaced out’, we realised we saved a great one for last.
We’re suckers for a great view and, in Seville, Spain, the best one was from the top of the Giralda, at the Cathedral of Seville.
With swirling Flamenco dresses, colourful mosaic tiles, internationally themed architecture and vibrant gardens, Seville, Spain is a photographer’s paradise. Today we share 10 of our favourite photos from this inspiring city.
