Tracey Blackman on 27 June 2023
Spending 3 nights in Andalucía -Southern Spain Seville /Cordoba / Malaga

This triple centre 1 night in each is just a wonderful mix of all the things that make Spain one of the best loved and most visited Countries on our earth , this part of Spain Costa Del Sol has so much to offer , Tapas , Beaches , and Sangria , and Sunshine

A short flight of 2 hours from London arriving in Saville a lovely temperature of 37 c , very hot in June , we checked in at Hotel Alfonso X111 San Fernando Very good location and within walking distance to restaurants , a beautiful pool so be rude not to have a swim in the morning . Seville Cathedral was spectacular , completed in 16th Century and was the largest in the world and a title held for 1000 years , its also the 4 th largest city in Spain ,what a beautiful city this is , with the Royal Palace , the Barrio Santa Cruz former Jewish Quarter , with white houses overlooking the River , so clean , well kept , a real coffee culture , orange trees , patios , Restaurants , loved it , and very reasonably priced for food and Drinks also.

Moving on this afternoon we stayed In Cordoba and stayed in a Parador De Cordoba , they are very good and normally a little quirky this was an old Convent with lovely views out to the Countryside , we set off after looking at some of the rooms on foot to visit the Mesquita a former Mosque and now a Cathedral with a vast Prayer hall with 800 columns of Jasper , Onyx and Marble it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site it really is amazing to see , then after seeing this we went to a very lovely restaurant Casa Pepe for Dinner .

The food is the best I have Eaten in Spain , lots of lovely fish , Tomato Sauces , wonderful Salads , good wine

We Visited a Bull Ring and the Architecture was beautiful , I was really surprised that families still go and watch a Bull fight , generally on a Thursday or Sunday eve , I can’t say that I liked seeing Bulls Hurt but its there Culture I guess.

After a lovely sleep our next and last stop is Malaga we stayed at Parador Golf which is around 20 mins from Malaga centre and on a golf course and also by the sea , well I was very happy as you know I love swimming in the sea , so for me it was straight in for a dip in the lovely Mediterranean Sea , it was wonderful and warm too .

We Then headed into Malaga and I was really pleasantly surprised it really has had a lot of money spent on it with lovely shops , restaurants , and we went to the Picasso Museum which was excellent , apparently he really had a passion for Malaga but he stayed in France but when he died they had his beautiful Navy velvet Cape back and you can see it .

Before heading back to the Airport for our flight home we stopped in the Car / costume Museum for anyone who loves vintage cars and fashion you will love this .

I really did have the most wonderful time and a triple centre is such a wonderful way to see more of this beautiful , traditional part of Spain , if you like the Authentic , Flamingo Dancing , Tapas ,Coffee Culture , with wonderful Architecture you will love it .
