Southern Spain is known the world over for its rich cultural legacy, fascinating history, natural beauty, and incredible climate. But there’s something else that makes this region special: its unique and delicious cuisine.
Andalusia is Spain’s second-largest autonomous community, encompassing its southern coastline (also known as the Costa del Sol) and of which 70% are sandy beaches. The Mediterranean seaboard is graced by the Costa de Almeria, Costa Tropical, and the glamorous, cosmopolitan Costa del Sol, while the Costa de la Luz lies along the Atlantic shore to the west of Gibraltar.
Its cuisine features plenty of fresh fish and seafood, as well as typical Andalusian dishes from farther inland. It also reflects influences from Muslim, Christian, and Jewish cultures, creating a combination that’s truly one of a kind.
