We'll cross the natural border of “Despeñaperros” and get into Andalusia, a region with a huge heritage from a splendorous past. Our first destination is Cordoba, former capital of the Caliphate. Lead by a knowledgeable English speaking guide we will visit the highlights of Cordoba: the narrow winding streets of the Jewish Quarter, the Synagogue and the fantastic Great Mosque of Cordoba, one of the world's greatest works of Islamic architecture, still standing from the time Muslims ruled Al-Andalus, that will ease our mind and spirit. In the afternoon, after a short ride we’ll arrive to Seville, the capital of Andalusia. Arrival at the hotel, dinner and accommodation.
Day 2. (Tuesday / Wednesday) SEVILLE
After breakfast we'll do a monumental and panoramic visit of Seville. You will visit from outside the Cathedral of Seville, the second largest in the Catholic world after San Pedro in Rome and its famous Giralda, the old minaret of the Arab mosque, then stroll throuhg the popular neighborhoods of Santa Cruz, natural scenery of "Carmen" as well as where it developed the myth of "Don Juan" and also Triana, with a deep popular flavor and cradle of bullfighters and artists. After the visit, you will enjoy free time to discover different perspectives and specific flavors of this active city full of light. For culture lovers, we recommend to do a comprehensive visit of the Cathedral of Seville, the most visited monument in the city, and also the beautiful Royal Palace - Alcazar of stunning Arab architecture and marvelous gardens with fountains, water jets and flower beds. Another building of great importance that evokes the glorious past of Seville as a gateway to trade with the Indies is the “Archivo de Indias”, a Renaissance-style building located near the cathedral. And in the evening, you can take a pleasant relaxing walk in the Maria Luisa Park, the most famous park in Seville, to enjoy the freshness of its shady streets, ponds, small lakes and fountains. Dinner and accommodation at the hotel. At night, optionally, you can enjoy a flamenco show.
Day 3. (Wednesday / Thursday) SEVILLE – MADRID (train)
Breakfast. Free day at your disposal to continue exploring Seville. You can visit the Casa de Pilatos, a palace that mixes various architectural styles such as the Mudejar, the Gothic and the Renaissance. Whether you are for or against, the bullfighting tradition is very strong in Andalusia, so another recommended visit is the Maestranza Bullring and its bullfighting museum. In counterpoint to the traditional style of the monuments of Seville, you will find the largest wooden structure in the world, the Setas de Sevilla, a modern viewpoint from where you can enjoy the best views of the city. At noon you should go for tapas, an unbeatable way to experience Andalusian culture and savour the charms of its bars and taverns. Tapas are an exquisite, varied and choice example of popular gastronomy which allows you to share a variety of dishes and try a wide range of different products for reasonable prices. May we recommend you an optional boat trip on the Guadalquivir River to enjoy the panoramic views that exist from the boat? Then you can walk along the banks of the Guadalquivir River, the "great king of Andalusia" as the local poet Luis de Góngora y Argote called it. In the late afternoon, transfer on your own to the station to depart by high-speed train to Madrid. Nice and short journey with the comfort and speed of this fast train. Arrival and end of our 3-days tour package of Andalusia.
