Cooking Vacations in Andalusia
Andalusia and its capital city Seville are among the most quintessential parts of Spain, home of such Spanish staples as tapas, flamenco and bullfighting. Much of the region’s charm arises from the “Moorish” influence, which is prevalent in the region’s architecture (including Córdoba’s Great Mosque and Granada’s world-famous Alhambra Palace), food, and design. Having been a crossroads for other civilizations, including the Greeks, Romans, Vandals and Castilians, Andalusia is one of Spain’s most fascinating regions. Today Andalusia is predominantly an agricultural region, making it an ideal locale for a Spanish culinary vacation! Home to some of the finest olive oils, ham, and sherry in Europe, it is a culinary traveler’s delight. Add to the wonderful food and wines a very temperate climate with mild winters and hot summers, and you have the makings of a truly ideal Mediterranean cooking holiday. The Andalusian Costa del Sol offers miles of beaches, while the interior is mountainous and largely populated by olive and almond groves.
Please see a complete list of the cooking vacations we offer in Andalusia below.
