Travel quotes about Andalusia
“Where was that fascination, that yearning for a typical Andalusian city, for a better town, that security for later, that stopped time? This is it, here is Ronda, Serranía de Ronda.” – Juan Ramón Jiménez
“Ronda is the place where to go if you are planning to travel to Spain for a honeymoon or for being with a girlfriend. The whole city and its surroundings are a romantic set. Nice promenades, good wine, excellent food, nothing to do.“ – Ernest Hemingway
“The art of bullfighting was wonderful because Ronda and Sevilla did it together.They united two truths into one with Illo and with Romero Sevilla and Ronda.“ – José Bergamín
“Strolling through Ronda at sunset, the cypresses, the palaces, all the air not far from the Courts of Cádiz; and a sky of inexpressible color, neither pearl gray nor silver; a suspicion of the slightest celestial that a certain white force of light erased and compensated with its irradiation.“ – Luis Cernuda
“In Ronda, one of the most impressive “Tajos” on earth. It would seem that some Cyclops tried to perform a surgical operation on the planet there, which he later abandoned, leaving the patient unstitched. In Ronda there are many streets that should carry a tourist sign: “To chaos”. In any landscape or path that is offered to the tourist, it is indicated that they will imperatively arrive “at the Cathedral”, “at the Museum”. But in Ronda there are many streets that lead to ourselves. El Tajo has no commitment to the guides. One looks at it and can find deep down fear, predictions, prayers or verses.“ – José María Pemán
“Round mountain range,
And the light of bullfighting
measures its wave.
You win, peace of Iberia,
my pure Ronda,
square of light without fair,
rose that lasts.“ – Gerardo Diego

“Almería, where the sun spends the winter.” – Rodolfo Lussnigg
“Cadiz is a city of magic, like Cracow or Dublin, to set the mind on fire at a turn of a corner. The eye is continually fed, the imagination stirred, by a train of spectacles as charming as if they had been contrived.” – Honor Tracy
“When Almería was Almería, Granada was its farmhouse.” – Unknown

she is a lady of such nobility
