Where Should I go: Andalusia or Basque Country?

Andalusia

The Andalusia Region of Spain is located in the south of Spain. The territory is divided into eight provinces: Almeria, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaen, Malaga and the capital city of the region, Seville. Andalusia is in the south of the Iberian Peninsula and is the only European region with coastlines on both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean. Traditionally, the main economic contribution of the area is from agriculture, but in recent years the service industry, specifically tourism, retail, and transportation, have become at least as important and possibly even more important to the economy.

Basque Country

Upon its lush green hills that tower over the deep blue waves of the Atlantic Ocean, you will find its perfected oceanic climate and breathtaking landscape to be only the beginning of Basque Country, Spain. Basque Country, or Euskadi, is an autonomous community located in northern Spain. This community was based off the Statute of Autonomy of the Basque Country, a legal document that enabled Basque people to develop on Spanish territory. Due to its strong traditional currents in Spanish heritage as well as magnificent architecture, Basque Country is a hotspot for tourists everywhere.
