ANDALUCIA is not all it’s cracked up to be. 

Or so it seems to a wealth of tourists who have taken to TripAdvisor to express their disappointment.

After all, it’s always a let-down to find an ancient Roman ruin that’s just a pile of old stones, a prehistoric cave without any natural light, or a cathedral which offers no tourist activities other than… looking at the cathedral.

From the confused to the disillusioned to the just plain bored, below is a collection of some of the finest TripAdvisor reviews given to top tourist attractions in Andalucia.

Andalucia1) Mezquita Cathedral, Cordoba

“It is a very impressive structure inside, but other than that there is really not a lot to do.”

One star in March 2016 from Leewho.


Andalucia2) Caminito del Rey, Malaga

“Fully fenced and protected and hardly the adventure it once was.”

  1. Obviously the saying ‘you cant please everyone all of the time’ is wasted on these cretins ……. they really should stay at home if they cant appreciate the actual meaning of these attractions – maybe a tour around their local McDonalds burger-bar would be more beneficial to people like this – lol

  2. These are people bereft of cultural and heritage appreciation. I’m puzzled why they even bother to travel to Europe. Maybe they should just go to Las Vegas or join a tour of Mcdonald’s chain or better still just stay home and watch cartoons.
