Top 40 ATTRACTIONS IN ANDALUCIA

This list shows the 40 most popular attractions in Andalucia - including palaces, museums and fortresses - by number of ticketed or recorded visitors each year.

In Andalucia many monuments are important historical, architectural and cultural landmarks, such as the Alhambra and Mezquita, and a number are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Others are relative newcomers - the restored Caminito del Rey has only been open, in its new incarnation, since 2015, though the spectacular walkway dates from 1921 originally.

We believe a comprehensive list has not been published before, so we have compiled our top 40 from a variety of sources. If you know any other attractions in Andalucia, that should be on this list, please let us know via the 'Contact us' at the bottom left of this page.

Open attractions such as Plaza de España in Seville or Puente Nuevo and Tajo in Ronda, Alhameda in Malaga, are naturally not included in the list.
