The Costa de Luz - the Coast of Light - makes up Cadiz´s coastline with 138km of often vast, unspoilt beaches and charming, low key resort towns frequented by Spanish tourists.

Cordoba Province
This fascinating province takes up the central northern part of Andalucía. Landlocked and bordered by the provinces of Malaga, Sevilla, Bajadoz, Ciudad Real, Jaen and Granada, the province is split in two by the huge Rio Guadalquivir, on whose banks stand the city of Cordoba. A city bursting with history, Cordoba in its heyday was a tribute to the technological and cultural advancement of the Moors and still standing as testimony to this is the magnificent Mesquita, the Great Mosque, which has dazzled visitors from across the world for centuries.

Granada Province
Granada Province not only includes the provincial city of Granada but Andalucia´s highest mountains, the snow capped Mulhacen and Veleta peaks of the Sierra Nevada with the magnificent Las Alpujarras to their south. To the west is the scenic back road to Malaga and the Axarquia region and to the east amongst dusty hills lies Guadix, famous for its cave dwellings and on to Baza.

Malaga Province
The smallest of Andalucia´s eight provinces is known as "the gateway to the Costa del Sol" due to the proximity of the city's airport. It includes the provincial capital that is the second largest city in Andalucia and possibly one of the most vibrant, atmospheric and historic in Spain, with its centre with wide leafy boulevards, endearingly dilapidated streets and buildings, museums and monuments all set against the backdrop of the sparkling blue Mediterranean.
