Andalusia is an autonomous community in southern Spain. It is the most populous and the second largest in place of the self reliant groups. The Andalusian self sufficient community is formally regarded as a "historic nationality". The territory is split into eight provinces: Almeria, Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaen, Malaga and Seville. Its capital is the city of Seville.
Andalusia is located in a privileged place inside the south of the Iberian peninsula, in south-western Europe, right now south of the self sustaining groups of Extremadura and Castilla-La Mancha; west of the independent network of Murcia and the Mediterranean Sea; east of Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean; and north of the Mediterranean Sea and the Strait of Gibraltar. Andalusia is the most effective European area with both Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines. The small British overseas territory of Gibraltar shares a 3-zone-mile land border with the Andalusian province of Cadiz at the jap stop of the Strait of Gibraltar.
