Andalusia (Région)

The large tourist resorts of Andalusia are concentrated on the coastlines of the provinces of Malaga, Granada and Almeria, in the Guadalquivir valley and in Granada itself.

Andalusia has been visited by more than 3.5 million tourists in 2016, mainly by the British, French, German and Scandinavian tourists.

Cities such as Seville, Malaga, Cordoba and Granada have a large hotel park. These cities concentrate considerable tangible and intangible heritage.

Andalusian communities rely heavily on certifications and heritage classifications to attract tourists. We find there the imaginary Andalusian patrimonial heritage expressing in a paradoxical way the Spanish identity, the Andalusian difference and the more or less direct filiation with the medieval heritage. The UNESCO nomination thus qualifies the city of Ronda as the Soul of Andalusia. Granada's Alhambra, one of the most visited monuments in Spain, attracted more than 3 million visitors in 2016.
