The jewel of Andalucia, Seville

The jewel of Andalucia, Seville is a fascinating city to discover. Especially, the historic Santa Cruz district. Take the time to wander through its streets and perhaps visit the imposing Cathedral, the largest in the world. 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. See the iconic Plaza de España, which adorns many a guide book and the modern ‘Las Setas’.

Walk the bustling sail-covered shopping streets with their historic boutiques. During your visit, seek out the tranquil river bank of the mighty River Guadalquivir or the imposing Maestranza Bull Ring. The city has a thrilling atmosphere, with flamenco music filling the air. The locals are up for dancing at the drop of a hat! You’ll see many impromptu flamenco demonstrations as you walk around. Furthermore, there are many fabulous bars and restaurants to discover as the Sevillanos carry on their party well into the night. With so much to see and do, you’ll soon fall under the city’s charm and want to head back to Seville!

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. A visit to Cordoba, with its crooked streets and beautiful ‘Calle de las Flores’ (Street of Flowers) is an absolute necessity.

See these fascinating cities and why not see more of the region and check out our tour discovering the cultural highlights of Andalucia.
