The main destinations in Andalusia are the Costa del Sol and the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The location of Andalusia in the south of the Iberian Peninsula makes it one of the warmest places in Europe. The entire territory has a Mediterranean climate, which provides a large number of hours of sunshine, which, together with the beaches, creates ideal conditions for a holiday vacation. It is the coastline that is considered the most important asset of the region. Its coast on one side faces the Atlantic Ocean (Costa de la Luz) and on the other side towards the Mediterranean Sea (Costa del Sol, Costa Tropical and Costa de Almería).
Andalusia boasts a great wealth of heritage and history. The three main monuments in the region include the mosque in Córdoba, Alhambra castle and palace complex in Granada and the Giralda bell tower in Seville. It is also worth paying attention to scattered throughout the region cathedrals, castles, monasteries and historical city centers including Úbeda and Baeza, which have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. All areas of Andalusia present a wide range of architectural styles, unique cultural attractions are also Colombian sites associated with Columbus' first trip to America, and archaeological sites, including the Roman city of Itálica, where Trajan and Hadrian came from, and the palace city of Medina Azahara. Andalusia is the birthplace of great painters such as Picasso (Malaga) or Murillo and Velázquez (Seville), to whom are dedicated interesting museums such as the Museo Picasso in Malaga and the Museo Casa de Murillo in Seville.
