the City of golden silence
the living City
It is easy for travellers to think of Andalusia as a clichéd land of charming villages of white stone buildings. While this is indeed a part of the Andalusia experience, deeper exploration reveals much more. Every corner of this wide province has deep roots in the memory of time and is wrapped in the magical spell of history.
The monumental, artistic, and cultural wealth found at the four corners of the region has created a universal legacy of renown and admiration. Andalusian influence has had a major impact not only on its neighbours but on the entire Western culture throughout history. For all this and many more reasons that you will discover, Andalusia appears several times on the World Heritage list created by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). In five of its cities, historical complexes and individual monuments appear on this famous list. From the large centres and monuments of Seville, Córdoba and Granada, to the more discrete but splendid Úbeda and Baeza, it is a place of endless discovery for travellers looking for exploration, wonderful landscapes, delicious cuisine and active tourism.

To some, ‘World Heritage’ cities may be magnificent but are no more than what an old but beautiful dusty book is to a bookstore: a way to showcase a place’s merit. But this is not the case with Andalusian cities. Rather, they are places of universal legacy, alive with creativity. Vibrant events such as the Baeza International Festival of Young Performers, the Córdoba Guitar Festival, the Granada International Music and Dance Festival, the Seville Flamenco Biennial or the Úbeda City International Music and Dance Festival are but a glimpse into the vast catalogue of traditions and cultural impact of these cities.
In this series, discover the five Andalusian cities on the World Heritage list, their history, their culture, their cuisine and what it really feels like to walk through their streets, squares and landscapes, from the smell of olive trees to the hidden legends of a province like no other.
