Andalucia School Trips
Andalucia is the second largest of the autonomous communities in Spain and the most populous. The name Andalucia is said to come from the Arabic name Al-Andalus given to the part of Spain conquered by the Moors in the 8th Century. Re-conquest by the Christian kings was a slow process and not completed until 1492 under the Spanish Crown of Ferdinand and Isobel. In that same year Christopher Columbus set sail from Palos de la Frontera in Andalucia to discover the ' New World ' and Spain's Golden age began. It was also here that General Franco's nationalist army began the overthrow of the Spanish Republicna government in the civil war of 1936-1939. The present day Andalucia has since regained it's own national identity underneath that of Spain's after Franco's Death with the re-introduction of a democratic government.
