Story: Andalusia is a particularly nostalgic spot; all Moorish architecture, bleached houses, deserted beaches and defused light.

Cold waters and undulating dunes – mirroring those of Bologna – elate the spirit and captivate the eye. Visitors from every compass point head to the south in search of Andalusia’s beguiling stretches of sand. An omnipresent blue sky pierces the horizon, cut only by beams of sunlight and the outline of far-off domes rising from their foundations.

Head north in pursuit of Los Pueblos Blancos, the white villages for which Andalusia is fawned over. Exuding a majesty all of their own, they are decadent and effortless in equal measure; courtyards brim with cascading blooms, while ceramic pots and plates litter every window ledge and patio stoop.

Watch as the sun sets, dappling the steeples and bell tower, casting an amber glow over the village. Then, silence.
