Andalucia - Costa de la Luz (coast of Light)

Andalucia is a very interesting place, a mix of oriental and occidental cultures and civilizations.

in earlier days, people of various origins (Spanish, Gypsy, Arab and Jewish) lived together in good harmony.

- El Rocio is an amazing village that looks like a village of Far-West with its sandy streets and facades of the brotherhoods of Andalusian hermitages.
The largest pilgrimage in Spain takes place in this city, at Pentecost.
One million pilgrims, mostly gypsies, come to celebrate the Virgin del Rocio.

Seville is situated on the plain of the River Guadalquivir, with an average elevation of 7 metres (23 ft) above sea level. The inhabitants of the city are known as sevillanos.
Seville is approximately 3000 years old. The passage of the various civilizations instrumental in its growth has left the city a distinct personality, and a large and well-preserved historical center. Although it has a strong medieval, renaissance and baroque heritage, the city was greatly influenced by Arabic culture.

COSTA DE LA LUZ

The Costa de la Luz is luminous and fascinating; its atmosphere is unique. It really cannot be imagined, it needs to be experienced.
‘Coast of Light’ is a perfect name for this sun-drenched sea shore. It begins at Tarifa, near Gibraltar in the south of Spain, continues up along the western Atlantic coast of Andalucía via Cadiz, and swings north and west, encompassing the marshy region around the Doñana Park and up to the City of Huelva, and then across to the Portuguese border.
