BRIEF HISTORY

The existence of human populations in the region goes back to the early Paleolithic era and many archaeological sites such as cave paintings date from this period. In the beginning of the historic era, Andalusia maintained the population of Tartarus, the first organized state on the Peninsula.Later, The Greeks and the Phoenicians established their costal colonies and cities creating great trading centers such as Cadiz. After a century as a Carthaginian province, Rome conquered Andalusia.In 711, we find the key date of Andalusian history. The occupation of the first Arab contingents was the beginning of eight centuries of Islamic domination. The Caliphate of Cordoba was a flourishing period making the entire region the cultural center of Western Islam.

The disintegration of the Caliphate constituted a grand opportunity for the Northern Christian kings. After Castile and Leon´s unification by Ferdinand III, there was a great movement for the establishment of a Christian Andalusia. The Catholic Kingdom ended the splendid past of Al-Andalus with the fall of Granada in 1492, the same year when Andalusia contributed to the decisive discovery and the later conquest and colonizing of America.
