Under the Constitution, Spain has successfully integrated itself into the international institutions in line and equal to the rest of the European nations. The most fruitful period in its history has seen great advances in social structure and human development in every order.
Andalusia, with its capital in Seville, is divided into eight provinces, following the Royal Decree of 1883 of Provincial Divisions, set out by Javier de Burgos.

We talk a lot about sustainability and energy efficiency and how these need to be implemented and introduced by all means necessary into the fabric and mindset of modern lifestyle. That is why the Government of Andalusia organized the first online seminar under the Poverty Interred Europe inviting 120 experts from six European countries where they had the chance to share and discuss different solutions and approaches to solving the energy poverty on the continent.
Much of the older buildings in Europe are simply not efficient according to modern standards, even if their inhabitants can afford to pay their bills. The Andalusian company Quantum Energy Verde proposed a financing tool for people living in energy poverty.
This concerned the renting of self-consumption renewable energy devices for as low as 1 euro a month without an initial investment. Surinenglish.this website uses its own and third-party cookies in order to optimize your navigation, adapt to your preferences and conduct analytical studies.
The Andalusian president, Juana Moreno, said on Monday that “more difficult” decisions would have to be made in terms of measures to curb the spread of Covid-19, if the figures did not improve, calling for “maximum caution and responsibility”. More worrying was the number of hospital beds in use by COVID-19 patients, at 2,763, a figure that has overtaken the first-wave peak of 2,708, registered on 30 March.
(In the graph below, the pale blue line indicates the total number of patients in hospital with COVID-19 in Andalusia since the pandemic began. The regional vice-president, Juan Marin, also implied on Monday that the authority has not ruled out the possibility of a new stay-at-home lockdown.
The national Health Minister, Salvador Ill, however, ruled out resorting to a stay-at-home lockdown on Monday and said that he was confident that the current measures in place would be sufficient. Nevertheless, the government is drafting documentation that would allow regional authorities to declare even stricter measures than the current state of alarm allows, including ordering citizens to stay at home.
Currently, only the region of Asturias has asked the government to permit a two-week lockdown of this kind. Other restriction sty, such as capacity of commercial and hospitality establishments, vary according to Risk Level.
In the same period 1,340 cases were confirmed in Seville and 1,089 in Granada, two Andalusian provinces with the highest infections rates.

Andalusia reaped the benefits of Islamic advances in philosophy, medicine, the arts, and other fields, as well as the religious tolerance practiced under Moorish rule. In addition, the Moors brought to the region sophisticated irrigation and cultivation techniques that made the land bloom.
When Christian forces based in Castile finally drove the Moors out of Granada (a province in Andalusia) in 1492, their religion (as well as that of the Jews) was suppressed. Much of the region's wealth was confiscated, and a long period of economic decline began.
In addition, Andalusia never built a strong industrial base and continued to rely on outmoded farming methods well into the twentieth century. However, since the end of the repressive Franco regime (1975) and Spain's entry into the European Community (EC) in 1986, Andalusia has seen some economic progress.
Andalusia is located in the southernmost part of the Iberian Peninsula, between the Sierra Moreno Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. It is bound by Portugal to the west; the Spanish provinces of Extremaduran, Castile-La-Mancha, and Murcia to the north; the Mediterranean to the southeast; and the Gulf of Cádiz to the southwest.
They are particularly known for the colorful Holy Week (Demand Santa) celebrations held in their cities and towns. The Catholicism of Andalusian's is distinguished by an especially strong belief in the power of intercession by saints and the Virgin Mary.
The most famous is Seville's Demand Santa, or Holy Week, celebration, which begins on Palm Sunday and ends on Easter Saturday. On each day, up to eleven processions of floats pass through town, organized by members of religious brotherhoods called comrades.
Seville's Beria takes place shortly after Easter and lasts an entire week. Baptism, first communion, marriage, and military service are considered rites of passage for Andalusian's, as they are for most Roman Catholic Spaniards.
The first three of these events are the occasion, in most cases, for big and expensive social gatherings in which the family shows its generosity and economic status. They form a closely knit group that collects money from neighbors to organize parties and serenade girls.
The day typically ends with a walk with friends or family or visits to neighborhood bars for drinks, tapas (appetizers), and conversation. In greetings, it is customary to shake hands, and in social settings women usually kiss their friends on both cheeks.
Young groups formed by co-workers, fellow students, or people from the same town go together to discos, organize parties and excursions, and date among themselves. Reflecting the Andalusian's' Moorish heritage, houses in the region have traditionally been designed with the goal of protecting residents from the heat of the sun.
Male participation in domestic life is sharply limited, and fathers generally maintain a more distant and formal role. In the 1980s, high unemployment in Spain forced many young adults to continue living with their parents.
Only church marriages were formally recognized in Spain until 1968, when civil ceremonies were first allowed by law. Andalusian women have a high degree of economic independence, and compete favorably with men for the region's scarce jobs.
Women's attire consists of solid-colored or polka-dot dresses with tightly fitted bodices and flounced skirts and sleeves. During the Holy Week (Demand Santa) festivals, members of religious fraternities called comrades wear all-white costumes consisting of long robes, masks, and high-pointed hats.
These are similar to those worn during the Spanish Inquisition of the fifteenth century and later adopted by the Ku Klux Klan in the United States. Popular tapas in all of Spain include shrimp-fried squid, cured ham, chorizo (spicy Spanish sausage), and potato omelettes (called tortillas).
The most famous Andalusian dish is gazpacho, a cold soup made with tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, and olive oil. The other dish for which Andalusia is known is fish fried in batter, available at special shops called bravuras.
Flamenco dances, accompanied by a singer and guitarist, feature expressive hand and chest movements, clapping (Capote), and foot tapping (Zapotec). The authentic flamenco song, sung a cappella (without musical accompaniment), is the caste condo, an anguished lament expressing love, sadness, and loss.
The Spanish national sport of bullfighting originated in Andalusia, where Spain's oldest bullrings are located (in Seville and Ronda). Next the picadors, mounted on horseback, gore the bull with lances to weaken him, and the banderilleros stick colored banners into his neck.
In a region with extremely hot weather much of the year, Andalusian life moves at a leisurely and casual pace. Much social life centers around the neighborhood bars where one can relax with a cold drink and a plate of tapas.
People also enjoy staying home and watching television, which is found even in the smallest village. In addition to their leather crafts, Andalusian's are known for their ceramics, which are distinguished by the geometric designs that originated with the Moors.
The art of Andalusian builders and stone carvers has survived in such famous buildings as the Alhambra Palace in Granada, the Giraldo Tower in Seville, and the mosque in the city of Córdoba.
