Andalusia

Discover Southern Spain!

Description:

The autonomous region of Andalusia lies in the the south of Spain it comprises eight provinces that include: Almeria, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, Huelva, Malaga, Jaen and Seville. Its political capital is Seville. Its coasts are bathed by both the Mediterranean and Atlantic oceans. It borders Extremadura and Castile-La Mancha in the north, Murcia and the Mediterranean Sea in the east, the Mediterranean and Atlantic ocean in the south, and Portugal in the west. Andalusia is the meeting point between Africa and Europe, as well as the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean sea.

The diversity of landscapes and geographical terrain gives rise to an array of environments that go from the heat of the Guadalquivir River(the most important river and the one who brings life to many areas in its journey across the region) valley through to luxuriant mid-mountain areas, volcanic landscapes such as the Tabernas desert, and the snow-capped peaks of Sierra Nevada - outstanding and is home to el Mulhacen, the highest mountain peak on the Iberian Peninsula reaching a height of 3,481mts. 

Andalusian rivers that lead into the Mediterranean sea are relatively short and contain small amounts of water. Amongst these are the Almanzora, the Almeria, the Adra, the Guadalfeo, the Guadalhore and the Guadiaro. The rivers that flow into the Atlantic are bigger and have more copious waters. The region's most important river is the Guadalquivir and its tributaries: the Guadalimar, the Guadiana Menor and the Genil. The Guadiana, the Odiel and the Tinto rivers also flow into the Atlantic.
