This is called a "saeta" and it will be the only thing you´ll hear in the night from White Thursday until Good Friday. 

Good places (but busy!) to watch the processions are:

osborne bull, toro osborne

Though, when driving through the wonderful nature of Andalusia, we also get to know another kind of bulls: the bulls of Osborne.

Our local Sherry brand (Osborne) placed these black bulls in nature to promote their products. Already in 1956, the artist Manolo Prieto from Cádiz came up with the idea of putting silhouettes of black bulls on hills, next to roads and near highways. These wooden bulls where soon turned into metal bulls, because of the weather.. (Yes, we do have rain in Andalusia, act...

Natural fiber and special chain stays make these bikes very exceptional, light and beautiful at the time. Especially the road bikes of cyclowood are used a lot by professional cyclists and also by amateurs. 

Now we will keep on working so in a few years we can provide our visitors with a nice, special, wooden cycle of which we are proud because of its innovative, Spanish character!

A Choripan is a sausage called chorizo (say: tjoriso) between some bread (pan). 

Couldn´t be clearer, a very inventive name. So if you would like to check out

what this VERY Andalusian tradition is about, head to the Sarmiento Park

of Cordoba the 15th of March (whole day). Here you can taste this traditional dish

at the "Festival Mundial del Choripán" (World Festival of Choripan) 

There will be 60 bbq´s with people making this elaborative dish .. ENJOY !!

One of our guides making the tour!

Her (beloved) city is Sevilla  and that’s also why she chooses to work as a guide besides working as an architect with her partner in crime: her father.  

I asked her how she ended up d...
