Why Andalucía?

Yes, we moved to Andalucía this summer.  Anyone could say, and rightly so, that we moved here because it is where Viqui is from. Well, that is partially true; we could have chosen many other places in the world. Nevertheless, this region of Spain is one of the “COOLEST” places where to live (and one of the “hottest” in the summer). Andalucía is a true melting pot of cultures, traditions and ideas, old and modern. And we have created “Yugen & Duende-Vive Andalucía” to help you experience and enjoy the mysterious spirit of this enchanted place. The video here will give you a glimpse of amazing Andalucía, and the words sang by “Ecos del Rocío” tell us about the life and deeds of being from Andalucía:

Here are some of the most emblematic words from the song:

“Andalucian, let the whole world know that I was born Andalucian. My land is Andalucia, the cradle of fusing cultures, of open arms. That is why it is the greatest in the universe. Here we take naps, we drink good wine; it is our philosophy, and we live it, because life is but three days.

(Chorus) We have a language that is spoken by all because good people understand each other with their eyes.
It’s the land of gazpacho. Early we wake up, the first ones at work, that’s why we lifted the whole world: explorers, beautiful women, bulls and pilgrimages.
We are the ones who have sent out the most people around the world.

Viqui and L. Alfonso will personally guide you to amazing places where you will live the YUGEN & DUENDE of Andalucía. Join our first tour, Nov. 30 to Dec. 9.

  6. Sapna Mendiratta

    We had a glimpse of the wonders you both have to offer through your travel company when we visited Seville for two nights in October 2019!
    Bobby and I had a wonderful time experiencing the beautiful Seville with the both of you! I still have the fond memories of walking down the narrow streets, exploring local shops and restaurants and eating local food while you both were explaining the history of Spain and Seville. We ended our trip with some good bye drinks on the rooftop overlooking the city! Was one wonderful time! Thank you so much and hope to come back and spend a few more days and explore more of beautiful Andalusia with you guys soon!!


    • Yugen & Duende

      Thank you, guys! It was our pleasure to do so. We hope to have you back for a longer time and with more friends and family.
      Besos y abrazos.
