    The Twin Peaks of Andalucia are just one of many grand and glorious sights that make this region of Spain unforgettable. With so much to offer, even two weeks is barely sufficient to cover its must-see cities, historical monuments and beaches.

    Where to start? Plan your travel carefully, but otherwise, in no particular order, I'll start with Almeria with its impressive Arab fortress built by the Caliph of Cordoba.

    On to Jerez, known worldwide for its sherry and brandy production — and charming Moorish old town architecture.

    A coastal resort popular with expats and vacationing Spaniards, Alumuñecar is set on the beautiful bay of Punta de la Mona.

    Costa del Sol's Torremolinos is a hit with the younger crowd for good reason; it has wide sandy beaches and an active nightlife with a wide range of apartment and hotel accommodations.

    The Alhambra needs no further introduction. This "crimson castle" is set amid a breathtaking backdrop of the magnificent Sierra Nevada mountains and is always a choice destination for tourists.

    Home to fabulous foods and the famous dance of the flamenco, it is Seville's great cathedral that must not be missed. Occupying the site of a late 12th century mosque, the cathedral is the largest church in the world, surpassing St. Paul's in London and St. Peter's in Rome, and is one of its most impressive.

    What about Cordoba, Malaga, Marbella, Benalmadena or Cadiz? You see, once you settle on a vacation to Andalucia, how do you visit it all in just one trip?

    So if you soon find yourself dreaming of a month-long tour of the beautiful region of Andalucia, blame it on the Travel Channel. They have a knack for inspiring dreams of travel to lands far and near.
