If you have trouble determining a destination based on deciding between the culinary delights, architectural feats, or cultural marvels, then our Southern Spain Tours are the answer.
Spain is the land of many wonders, where intricate history weaves its way into everyday life.
Where charismatic cities are like the tapas, bursting with flavours found around every corner. Where the serene countrysides are full of run down barns, rolling cattle ranches, and olive groves.
For travellers on our tours of Southern Spain, there is the chance to explore a little bit of everything.
It seems fitting that the homeland of one of the world's strongest empires is a grand showcase of art and culture.
Discover palaces such as that in Sevilla, where King Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella once resided as Spain entered the golden age of discovery.
The grandeur of galleries such as the Prado found in Madrid which houses all the finest works that were collected by the Spanish Royalty, epitomize the vast wealth collected by the Iberian nation.
For those who follow history, perhaps one of the most interesting influences to cross this Iberian peninsula was not the Armada that was sent abroad, but the Moors who invaded and conquered the land.
From 711 AD, the Moors conquered Spain and left in their wake of a 700 year rule, some of the most elegant and refined cities of Europe.
Tours of Southern Spain visit Granada, a city with rich history set against the backdrop of the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains, Spain's highest mountain range.
Wander the cobblestone alleyways of this ancient city, with tapas bars serenading visitors with flamenco music, tempting with spicy aromas, and begging for a leisurely visit with sangria on special.
Known as the city of castles, it is the allure of the Moorish palace of Alhambra that brings people to this region.
The Islamic decor and landscaped gardens found within this 13th century fortress are sure to impress, as will the ornate and precise 'lace in stone' architectural details found within the embellished palace. There is no doubt, in Europe, this monument is without rival.
There are many more impressive Moorish sites beyond the Alhambra. The Alcazar Palace, a 14th century palace, is set in the picture-perfect city of Andalucia, complete with restored Andalusian architecture, orange groves, castanet-rattling Gypsies and flower-filled patios.
In Cordoba, our tours of Southern Spain visit the Mezquita-Catedral, or Great Mosque of Cordoba, one of the oldest structures still standing which was built by the descendants of the exiled Umayyads.
Away from the city we partake in visits to 25,000 year old Neolithic and Paleolithic drawings found in the Pileta Caves, and step into a bullring after a visit to a bull breeding farm to understand a controversial part of current culture without having to witness the act of bullfighting.
We will peer into the dramatic escarpments and views that are found on the southern end of this dynamic country.
With vast treasures spanning thousands of years, tours of Southern Spain are sure to leave visitors speechless, and always eager for more.
