In the afternoon you will visit Marbella and Puerto Banus. Which are, without a doubt, one of the Costa del Sol’s major tourist centres. The historic part of Marbella, sitting on a beautiful bay, shelters lovely corners of a typically Andalusian flavour, with whitewashed houses and orange trees adorning the streets and squares.

On the road we will stop for a typical breakfast and then you will have a walk in the old town of Ronda and do some sightseeing including its impressive New Bridge, stunning views over Tajo and the oldest bullfighting arena of Spain. To make the impression complete you will visit a small family-owned winery and its vineyards, you will learn the differences about varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, or Merlot, and how they are cultivated. Afterwards you will taste their white and red wines together with a typical Andalusian feast, cooked and served by the winery owners. Now it is time to move further and we are heading to Seville. In the way, you will have time for a typical Spanish “siesta”. Upon arrival you will enjoy a walking tour in the very heart of historic city center, including the most remarkable spots like Square of Spain (Plaza de España) which was built to celebrate the Ibero-American Fair of 1929, the Maria Luisa Park the major recreation area of the city and the Tower of Gold that used to be a military watchtower during the times of Almohad Caliphate. After a walk you will be taken to the hotel for check-in.

Day 3

The Cathedral of Seville, The great Mosque of Cordoba


On the third day of your trip you will get familiar with the spiritual heritage of Andalusia. We will start with the visit to Seville Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral and the third-largest church in the world. It was built to demonstrate the city’s wealth, as it had become a major trading center in Spain in the years after the Reconquista in 1248. We will climb up to the top of La Giralda, the bell tower of a cathedral, from where you may enjoy the best views over the city. Both sites are listed as World Heritage by UNESCO.

In the afternoon we will head to Cordoba that used to be the most populated city in Europe in the 10th century, it was not only the intellectual center of Europe but also an example of how Muslims, Christians and Jews lived in peace. Here the other UNESCO World Heritage Site is awaiting for you – welcome to the Great Mosque of Cordoba, a religious building with more than 1400 years history. Its incredible hall has 856 columns of jasper, onyx, marble, and granite, and was made from pieces of the Roman temple which had occupied the site previously, as well as other destroyed Roman buildings. After visiting A Mosque let´s roam a bit the streets of Jewish Quarter that is recognised as the second most known site of Córdoba and a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1994. The Juderia de Cordoba is a part of the historic center of city which tells the story how the city lived a splendid period when three neighbourhoods Christian, Jewish and Muslim with their corresponding religions coexisted peacefully, offering the world an example of tolerance and intelligent civilization. Three babel languages had coexisted and everyone prayed in harmony and in their own languages to their god. Walking through the Jewish Quarter we will come across the Synagogue (14th century) and a magnificent bronze statue dedicated to Maimonides, the great Jewish philosopher and physician who lived in Cordoba. After a day spent in the peaceful atmosphere of the great temples you will be driven to Granada and accommodated in a hotel.

Day 4

The Alhambra and Generalife Gardens
