Escape to Andalucía…

Tapas is popular across Spain - Calamari Andaluz is particularly popular in Andalucía!

Taste the tapas

One of the great mysteries of Spanish gastronomy is the origin of tapas. Whatever way they started life, tapas are popular across Spain and every region has its own variations.

Andalucía is no exception, with seafood dishes like Boquerones, Calamari Andaluz and  Pesciato Frito being particularly popular!

Semana Santa is a massive event in the Andalucian calendar. As the processions move through the streets, the air is heavy with incense and filled with music as the crowd lament the suffering and death of Christ.

Feel the Passion

Semana Santa is a HUGE event in the Andalucian calendar. From Palm Sunday through to Easter Sunday the penitents carry huge platforms bearing scenes representing the Passion, death and resurrection of Christ in huge parades.

As the processions move through the streets, the air is heavy with incense and filled with music as the crowd lament the suffering and death of Christ.
