It is the birthplace of gipsy culture, and the home of flamenco : the spellbinding Andalusia… a warm-blooded land, Sophie will unveil its secrets today.
In Grenada, taken in the fervor of the Holy Week, Sophie learns the mysteries of the great processions and will even honor the chariot of the Virgin, with the Andalusian penitents. In the freshness of Alhambra, the mythical Arab palace in Grenade, she discovers poetry carved in stone, and the « whisper of the waters » so dear to the ears of the sultans. In the white village of Zahara de la Sierra, Kingdom of olive trees, Juan, owner of one of the last traditional mills will deliver all the secrets of the « Andalusian Gold », an olive oil so pure that it can be savored as a great wine.
But it’s to the rhythm of flamenco that Sophie will understand the soul of this region : in Jerez de la Frontera, gipsy town by excellence, Sophie will vibrate to the music of gypsy singers and will experience her first flamenco steps with the incredible Maria, star of the Andalusian scene.
