Stunning scenery and the attractions of three unique and great cities combine in this seven-day tour of southern Spain. You will be bewitched by Seville with its great gothic cathedral, winding streets and hidden squares – and where flamenco thrives. Travelling east, Cordoba is the ancient capital of the Moors and is famous for the Mezquita, the largest mosque ever built.
On a smaller scale, you will find the city’s flower-filled patios are equally captivating. Then on to Granada set in the Sierra Nevada mountains – home of the Alhambra, another magnificent monument to Moorish invention and imagination and one of the world’s greatest buildings. And no trip to Andalucia is complete without making time for a thorough investigation of all the wonderful food and drink the region has to offer.
