Despite the heat of summer, this can be a wonderful time of the year to travel around southern Spain. Just be sure you follow the Spanish example and do your exploring early in the morning, take a big mid-day break out of the heat and then head out into the cool of the night to see how locals really live during the summer. If you’re looking for new places to explore, visit Andalucia.com and click on “Destinations” for all the information you need to expand your local horizons.
For many, however, this is a time to head for the beach. If that’s your choice, you’ll barely have to move to enjoy the annual Virgen del Carmen celebrations, one of the Andalucian coast’s most emblematic summer festivals. Everything you might like to know about this amazing tribute to the patron saint of fishermen is waiting for you on Andalucia.com’s home page.
And we have a new resource to take you ever deeper into the modern culture and the history of southern Spain. Our all new online Andalucia Magazine now hosts all of our past homepage features in one handy e-zine. The Andalucia Magazine is the best way to get inside information about local festivals, great travel destinations and interesting personalities connected with this spot on the globe.
