The objectives set by El Legado Andalusí Foundation are based on the reassessment and dissemination of the Spanish-Muslim civilisation by means of its art and culture and historical and social relationships with the Arab world, the Mediterranean environment and the Latin America.
The activities we are developing to achieve these objectives include the promotion of cultural and rural tourism, traditional arts, the protection and restoration of our vast heritage of monuments and art.
These aspects can be found in the Routes of El Legado Andalusí, which are historical and traditional roads travelled along in years gone by historical travellers that will increase the number of tourist activities available in inland Andalusia. The Routes of al-Andalus take in more than two hundred towns throughout the Iberian Peninsula.
