The jewel of Andalucia, Seville is a fascinating city to discover

The city has a thrilling atmosphere, with flamenco music filling the air, and the locals up for dancing at the drop of a hat. Take the time to wander through the streets and perhaps visit the imposing Cathedral, the largest in the world in the historic Santa Cruz district. Visit the nearby and breathtakingly spectacular Real Alcazar. Additionally, the old palace of Andalucia’s Moorish royals is an ornate masterpiece that will leave you in awe. There is a great range of sights and attractions to explore and visit. During your visit, see the iconic Plaza de España, which adorns many a guide book and the modern ‘Las Setas’.

Córdoba; a blossoming ancient Andalusian city hard to resist

The city of Córdoba on the river Guadalquivir has a lot more of intimate feel than its modern neighbour, Seville.  Yet there are so many historical treasures here to visit and the gleaming gem is La Mezquita (Grand Mosque). The design, with nearly a thousand arches and columns, is mesmerising. The Torre del Alminar is a 54m-high bell tower. Córdoba has such a fascinating history and was once an important Roman city and a major Islamic centre in the Middle Ages. You can also discover the fascinating history and shows at the Spanish Royal Riding School.

See this fascinating region and discover the cities and cultural highlights of Andalucia. If you’re looking to visit southern spain on a more active tour, why not check out our Hiking in the Sierra Nevada tour.
