oh man! I've been to Valencia which is *almost* Andalucia, but not quite. SO jealous! You're going to have a great time!

There are a lot of members who have been to that area and will tell you that it's wonderful. Try to visit the Alhambra in Granada and I've heard that Sevilla is a beautiful city.

Im so jealous! Malaga is amazing, such an interesting and beautiful town. You'll also be close to so many beautiful beaches. Enjoy!

Beautiful and really varied - the olive trees stretching for miles inland, and the beautiful beaches in the south... If you're there at Easter, be sure to check out the famous processions (most at night, during the day on Easter Sunday) during Semana Santa...
Andalusia is renowned throughout the country for these processions, and they're televised throughout the region.
