With a population of over 8 million, Andalucia is the largest autonomous region in Spain and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. It is also home to a large number of international families. Andalucía is quintessential Spain. It is the Spain that comes to mind for many, with its bullfights, sherry, olive groves, Flamenco and grand Moorish castles. It is also one of the few places where you can enjoy a day on the beach followed by a day skiing in snow-covered mountains. With its 500 miles of coastline, mild climate, beautiful countryside, whitewashed villages and flamenco, fiesta and numerous traditions it is no surprise that this area of Spain continues to attract new visitors year after year.
