    Take advantage of the Easter holiday to get to know Andalucia’s cultural and historical legacy better. We suggest some cultural routes you can visit in Cádiz, Málaga and Seville.

    1. ‘Gadir’ Phoenician Route. This is a cultural route devised for you to discover what Cádiz was like in Phoenician times. It takes you to archaeological sites that have interesting vestiges of Phoenician and Punic origin, and other places in the city related to the Phoenician culture. Places to visit include the Gadir and Casa del Obispo archaeological sites, the Colonisation Room of the Museum of Cádiz, and Erytheia and Kotinoussa Parks located next to Carola Ribed College.

It takes you to scenes as unique as outside the house of Don Juan Tenorio, the dwelling of Doña Ana de Pantoja (fiancée of Don Juan in the play Zorrilla), or the tomb of the Tenorio that was located in the current Town Hall?

    5. Cave art route

    8. Learn something new and fun

    This proposal for an alternative Easter holiday might be less attractive, but you will definitely spend time wanting to learn something new just to have fun. Maybe your everyday work did not allow you to. So, take advantage of these days of rest and have fun by making this wish come true.

    Learn to ride a horse, sign up for a sailing or any other water sport course, take part in a painting, writing or sculpture workshop. Learn for the pure pleasure of learning.

    The typical dishes of Holy Week are characterized by their variety even when they are recipes where the meat does not appear since according to the tradition in Lent the consumption of this product is prohibited, but its absence is supplemented with other products as rich as cod. In addition, sweets are an essential part of the culinary tradition of these dates: we recommend that while you are in Andalusia, follow the characteristic smell of cinnamon and honey.

    We recommend some dishes that during these dates will delight even the most profane.
