Andalusia, in southern Spain, is synonymous with joie de vivre and popular culture.

The programme introduces Andalusia through its fiestas and traditions, its food, its Easter Week processions, its heritage, its natural attractions and its arts and crafts. Here in these towns and villages you'll find a whole range of activities to help you experience the popular culture of Andalusia. As well as guided tours of its rich heritage, you can take part in unique traditions such as the Easter celebrations, try your hand at making olive oil in artisan workshops, ride on horseback through olive groves and vineyards, see local crafts close up, visit wineries and taste their wines…The towns in the Pathways of Passion have plenty of ideas for you, with a network of Easter interpretation centres, and a Lent and Easter Cookery and Pastry Route including over 100 establishments where you can try the traditional sweets that accompany these festivals.
