Top 5 Autumn experiences in Andalucia
Any round up of experiential opportunities in Andalucia would be deficient without a mention of the festivals at any time of year as these fun-filled fiestas are one of the best and easiest ways to get a literal taste for the local culture. However, autumn provides such particularly tantalising harvest celebrations as the chestnut festival in Alcaucin (31st October 2013) and the Ajo Blanco festival in Almachar (7th September 2013), celebrating the cold almond and garlic soup made with freshly harvested almonds. Villanueva de Cordoba celebrates the famed Iberian ham with the “dia del jamon” on 12th October 2013, while Teba puts on a festival of artisanal cheeses on the first weekend of October. These are but a few of the autumn festivals, but chances are, wherever you may be in Andalucia, a fiesta is not far away.
