Sevilla

About the city

Seville has a special colour, this effervescent city is filled with captivating traditional architecture in colours of lemons, plums and oranges. The River Guadalquivir runs approximately north-south through Seville. Most of the city, including the old quarter of Barrio de Santa Cruz, is on the east bank, while the Barrio de Triana lies on the west bank. At midnight, impromptu singing, clapping and guitar playing fill bars and streets. By day, the diversity of the city’s heritage becomes apparent. The Romans, Moors, Catholic Spaniards, and now, hordes of tourists have all tried to claim Seville as their own. Indeed, Seville has never failed to spark the imagination of newcomers. From the street, the cathedral seems unimpressive; you must go inside to get some sense of its dimensions. Massive pillars support the vaulted roof, and the wealth of treasure is fabulous beyond belief. Another major sight of the city is La Giralda, which was the minaret of the Almohad mosque. From the top, there’s a fantastic view of the city across the barbed spires and buttresses of the roof. La Torre del Oro, a symbol of the city, originally covered in golden tiles, watches over the town as it has always done since 1220. Seville at night is wonderful, everything takes on a mystical air able to hypnotize and if you know how to live it, you will fall under its spell.

About the city

Perhaps nowhere else does Spain’s diverse heritage present itself so tangibly to the visitors as in Cordoba. The Roman Bridge, and scattered pillars and ramparts testify to the city’s importance in Roman times. The Arab occupation brought about its greatest prosperity and for a time Cordoba, with is vast library, was the largest city in the world. Cordoba captures the essence of Andalusia today: White-washed houses along narrow streets hide serene patios, and the strains of cante jondo, a vocal style in flamenco, still resound from time to time. Most sights and monuments are clustered in the Juderia, a maze of narrow winding streets that was once the city’s Jewish quarter. This area lies between the Plaza de las Tendillas, Cordoba’s main square, and the River Guadalquivir. Here visitors will find the city’s symbol, The Mezquita, Great Mosque, which is a mystic wonder; an airy forest of 850 marble, alabaster and stone pillars supports the 425 striped double-decker arches. From the tower visitors can clearly see how the 13th century conversion into a cathedral resulted in an incongruous juxtaposition of styles. Mischievous The Jewish quarter is great for tapas and bar-hopping, while you are at it, try a light, dry fino or a sweet Pedro Ximenez, the most famous local wines. Córdoba has plenty reasons for visiting it. This city invites you to dream: just wander through its convoluted alleys and you will realize you're in a unique place. Do not miss the sunset from the Roman Bridge over the Guadalquivir river. After that you won’t want to go to sleep.

Guided Visit to Medina Azahara

day 2 - In English - without tourist bus 11am
Medina Azahara, or Madinat az-Zahra, meaning “shining town” in Arabic is the ruins of a vast, fortified Arab Muslim mediaeval palace-city, built by the first Umayyad Caliph of Cordoba, Ad-ar-Rahman III, located 8km outside the city of Cordoba in the foothills of the Sierra Morena mountains. In this guided tour you’ll learn all about the fascinating history of this complex, known as the Islamic Versailles.

Medina Azahara was built as a symbol of the new Caliphate and became the de facto capital of Muslim Spain, as government and administration was within its walls. Building started in 936 – 940 and the city boasted ceremonial reception halls, mosques, administrative and government offices, gardens, a mint, workshops, barracks, residences, and baths. Water was supplied through aqueducts. However the city was burned down and razed to the ground during civil unrest in the early 11th Century.

The complex today is still impressive and is one of the most important archaeological sites in Spain. The tour will start with a visit to the underground visitors’ centre. Have a look around the extensive collection of artefacts on display in the museum as you learn all about the history of the shing city, supposedly built for a favourite concubine from the Caliph’s harem.

Next we’ll explore the site itself. You’ll be awed by the remains of the huge reception halls and ruined mosque. Walk around the old gardens, conceived as a reconstruction of paradise on earth, watered by irrigations channels and myriad marbled fountains spouting from bronze representations of lions, horses and griffins.

As you relax in the shade, it’s not difficult to imagine the sound of trickling water in marble fountains, the air scented by jasmine, honeysuckle and rose, the stone of the palace buildings tinged pink by the rising sun, as the caged nightingales sing.

Granada

About the city

The Muslim rulers of Granada adored and adorned this provincial capital. Ignore the low apartments of Granada and look up: the majestic clay-red Alhambra palace looms against the Sierra Nevada, Europe’s sunniest ski slopes. And the refreshing coastline is also nearby. The Alhambra, the red one in Arabic, is an Islamic monument of universal fame ad unfaded grandeur, built on a hill covered with splendid woods and gardens. The numerous courtyards and rooms inside the palaces of the Casa Real are among the finest examples of Mudejar art and architecture. Constructed after the Reconquista of Granada to replace the mosque on the site, the Cathedral of Granada is the first purely Renaissance cathedral is Spain. The Royal Chapel, reached by a separate entrance, contains the elaborate tomb of Ferdinand and Isabella, along with Isabella’s splendid private art collecting. South of the Cathedral is the Albayzin, the old Arab quarter, a set of winding alleyways with Moorish-style archways decorating the walls. Granada is famous for its holy week celebrations, which include festivities and processions. For less cultural diversion, stick to the student pubs around the university.

Alhambra Entrance Ticket and Audio Guide of Granada

day 3 - Tour
See Granada through the eyes of a local with this audio guide tour and Alhambra admission package.

Highlights
- Admission to all the palaces and gardens including Alcazaba, Nasrid Palaces and Generalife
- Four fascinating routes of the city.
- Audio guide prepared by the city’s official chronicler

The audio guide has more than five hours of narration and is valid for 48 hours. Commentaries have been especially prepared by the city’s official chronicler for four fascinating routes: Muslim (which includes the Alhambra), 17th century, Landscape, and Baroque. The Alhambra general admission allows you to visit all the palaces in the complex as well as the Generalife Gardens.

The Muslim Route covers the Alhambra and its environs, giving you the lowdown on this breathtaking complex. The general admission allows access to all the palaces and garden such as the Alcazaba, Nasrid Palaces, Generalife and Palace of Charles V. The views overlooking the city are stunning.

The 17th century Route focuses on the city centre and Realejo district, which was where the city’s sizable Jewish community lived until the Christians captured Granada in 1492. Its labyrinthine alleys of white walls with copious vegetation are the essence of old Granada.

The Landscape Route takes in the Albaicin and the Sacromonte barrios. The Albaicin was the Muslim quarter and is a maze of cobbled lanes that occasionally open onto plazas boasting romantic views of the Alhambra and the Sierra Nevada. Sacromonte is famed for its cave dwellings, traditionally inhabited by gypsies.

The Baroque Route centres on the medieval streets of old town, where the cathedral – an eclectic mix of Gothic, Renaissance and baroque styles – and markets are to be found.

Malaga

About the city

Malaga, the birthplace of Picasso, exudes art from every brick. Considered one of the oldest cities in Spain and Europe, this cosmopolitan port is buoyantly modern yet it hangs on to its vast historic past. The palm-lined Paseo el Parque will take you below Alcazaba, a Moorish palace whose fortified walls enclose fragrant gardens and an archaeological museum. The lofty Gibralfaro Castle crowns a nearby hill, with outstanding views of the sprawling city below. Also worth a visit is the Picasso Museum that, aside from an impressive artistic patrimony, offers educational activities and cultural events. Málaga deserves a good night visit: do not miss a good walk along the harbour where traditional fried fish is washed down with cold beer at chiringuitos (beach bars) and enjoy the illuminated Alcazaba, which watches over the city from Mount Gibralfaro.
