In our last article we covered Seville in the region of Andalucia. This time we will write about Granada, Malaga and Jaen in the same region.
Andalucia, in the south of Spain since history has had the influence of several cultures and to this day remains the land of celebrations, music, flamenco, food, bullfighting and some of the best monuments on the planet the Alhambra being one of the greatest.
The region has many monuments dating back to the times when the region was ruled by the Moors and the celebratory environment is associated with the Gypsies who came here with their music and dance centuries ago. Even though the famous band The Gipsy Kings came from Arles and Montpellier in France they mainly performed in Andalusian Spanish since their parents were Spanish gypsies.
