Andalucia is an autonomous community with many contrasts and nature. Its charm and beauty conquer the hearts of inhabitants and many visitors.
Below is an overview of a special street, by province.
Calle Vida, Seville
In the heart of the Santa Cruz district you will find alleys where you can get lost and wander without a care in the world. One of them is Calle Vida, which you can reach via the Callejón del Agua, which is connected to the courtyard of the Royal Alcazar. There is a legend about Calle Vida which tells that this stretch of street, connecting Calle Judería to the Santa Cruz district, was one of the gates through which some Jewish families managed to escape fate in the 14th century.
Campo del Sur, Cadiz
This promenade, Puerta de Tierras to the Baluarte de los Mártires undoubtedly offers spectacular views of all in Cadiz, playa Santa María beach, playa Victoria and, of course, the cathedral. Walking or cycling there is very pleasant. Overlooking the sea and at the same time the city. Highly recommended!
Calleja de las flores, Córdoba
This alley is located in the Jewish quarter of the capital, near the Meqzuita and ends in a small square with a central fountain that gives a touch of life and freshness to the street. It is also one of the most photographed corners of the city in recent times because of the street’s balconies full of flowers that frame the beautiful background, the bell tower of the Mezquita.
Calle Elvira, Granada
This street runs parallel to the Gran Vía in Granada and has Islamic origins with all its charm, but also the beauty of the later centuries because it has always been one of the busiest streets in the Albaicín. At the entrance to the street you can see the Puerta de Elvira built in the 11th century during the Ziridian dynasty.
Muelle del Tinto, Huelva
Since 2007, this promenade has been restored and declared an Asset of Cultural Interest. The engineering work dates from the last quarter of the 19th century. Through this pier, passersby can look out over the Doñana Natural Park and enter the mouth of the Odiel River, where they can enjoy a beautiful palette of colours at sunset.
Calle Larios, Málaga
One of the busiest and most famous streets in Málaga, full of life all year round and one of the city’s most commercial streets. The architecture of the street stands out for its noble and symmetrical buildings, all of which have curved designs at the corners. This street begins at the Plaza de la Constitución and ends at the park Alameda Principal.
Plaza de la Constitución, Almería
Known as the Plaza Vieja, this place is located in the old town at the foot of San Cristóbal hill. It is home to the city hall and several institutional offices, but what stands out about this plaza is the monument to the Martyrs of Liberty that dominates this plaza of Arabic origin. The souk used to be here.
Calle Duque, in Jaén
From the viwpoint on Calle Duque you can see the Catedral de la Asunción de la Virgen de Jaén, part of the city and the mountains in the background. A spectacular view! The colourful houses on the way to the viewpoint also make the trip to the top of the hill more pleasant and are part of the landscape when you reach the top.
