This week, we’d like to make the most of your spare time (if any) if you are home, but still would like to visit some of the most impressive museums and monuments in Andalusia. Thanks to the virtual visits, we can still enjoy and discover some of the most known attractions in Andalusia. Are you ready?
Seville is home to some of the most impressive Andalusian monuments. Today, we will discover two of its most iconic landmarks, as well as a Roman settlement.
- Seville Cathedral: the biggest Cathedral in the world was built over the foundations of a Mosque – yet another proof of the melting pot Andalusia has always been. A UNESCO World Heritage Site and burial place of, amongst others, Christopher Columbus.
- Alcazar: the Alcazar is the oldest Royal Palace in Europe still in use. Its impressive gardens were the perfect set for Game of Thrones’ Dorne. Yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site in Andalusia.
- Italica: an impressive Roman settlement located on the outskirts of Seville. Its amphitheatre, still well kept, seated 25,000 people. The visitor can discover the thermae, the houses and the mosaics still in place. Italica was the birthplace of Roman Emperors Trajan and Hadrian.
Malaga is known for its wide museum offer and, in this occasion, we will visit some of the most important art galleries of the country, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Antequera.
- Russian Museum of St Petersburg, Malaga: this branch of the Russian museum (the only one outside Russia) gives the visitor the chance to discover three of its exhibitions, all related to Russia or to Russian artists.
- Thyssen Museum: focusing on Andalusian paintings, this museum is an excellent option for those looking to discover a wide array of Andalusian painters as well as the costumbrismo and the 19th-century painting.
- CAC Malaga: Malaga’s contemporary art museum offers a virtual visit to some of its most popular exhibitions, such as Marina Abramovic, Ai Weiwei or Hernan Bas.
- Antequera Dolmens: another UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Antequera Dolmens are over 5,000 years old and were built as a necropolis.
The most visited monument in Spain and yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site had to be in our list:
- Alhambra: with a virtual map, you will discover the most important rooms and corners of the Alhambra and the Generalife without leaving your living room.
Cordoba is the only city in the world with 4 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and, today, we will discover two of them, as well as a city museum:
- Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba: this link, although not a full virtual visit, allows us to discover how the Mosque was built and all the alterations made through the centuries, before it became the monument we know today.
- Medina Azahara: the latest UNESCO addition to the city. Medina Azahara is a fortress and palace city located on the outskirts of the city centre and a total must-see when in Cordoba.
- Museo de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Museum) of Cordoba: where some of the paintings by the most important painters and artists of the city are displayed.
We do hope you have enjoyed this virtual tour in some of Andalusia’s most known monuments and museums.
