Andalusia (/ˌændəˈluːsiəˌ -ziəˌ -ʒⁱə/; Spanish: Andalucía [andaluˈθi.a, -si.a]) is a south-western European region established as an autonomous community of the Kingdom of Spain. It is the most populated and the second largest in area of the autonomous communities in Spain. The Andalusian autonomous community is officially recognised as a nationality of Spain. The territory is divided into eight provinces: Almería, Cádiz, Córdoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Málaga and Seville. Its capital is the city of Seville (Spanish: Sevilla).
Andalusia is in the south of the Iberian peninsula, immediately south of the autonomous communities of Extremadura and Castile–La Mancha; west of the autonomous community 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 only European region with both Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines. The small British overseas territory of Gibraltar shares a three-quarter-mile land border with the Andalusian province of Cádiz at the eastern end of the Strait of Gibraltar.
Andalucia (Arabic: الأندلسية; sometimes spelled Al Andalucia) is a town project by Jordan Kuwait Bank located 20 km away from Amman, Jordan. It is named for the former Muslim kingdom of Al-Andalus (modern Andalusia) in Spain. It is the first Gated Community project to be launched in Jordan. It consists of 582 villas from ten different designs, which take up about 37% of the overall project area, which is 800,000 m² in size. The project was supposed to be completed in 2009, at a total cost of 150,000,000 JOD But is still to be completed as of June 2012; due to cash flow problems. The project has been marked by delays in completion and failure by Taameer to pay contractors and suppliers. Andalucia is supposed to have many facilities including a health club, shopping centers, restaurants, coffee shops, parks, clinics, as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools.

Andalucia is a genus of jakobids.
The morphology of Andalucia broadly resembles that of other jakobids. Molecular data has not always been conclusive, but recent phylogenomic analyses indicate that Andalucia is a sister group to the other jakobids, in other words more closely related to them than to the Heterolobosea or Euglenozoa (the other two groups in the Discoba). The α-tubulin gene of Andalucia more closely resembles that of opisthokonts and diplomonads than its closer relatives, the apparent result of horizontal gene transfer.
As of 2009, the genus contains two species:
Analysis of DNA sequences from the environment suggest at least two additional species which have not been isolated or formally described.
