Ronda/ Setenil de las Bodegas

2 days / 1 night      

From 230p.p. ( group of 6 people)

Join us on this wonderful 2 day excursion to two of Spain’s most extraordinary locations!

Day 1:

Ronda (Malaga province) is most known for its world famous and spectacular looking  New Bridge(1793), built  over the El Tajo gorge, and uniting the new (el mercadillo) part of the city with the old Moorish quarter.

Its bullring (1785) became historic because of its introduction of the red cape bull fighting, facing the bull on foot instead of on horseback.

The cities breath-taking panoramic views and landscapes, its excellent bodegas and delicious local food will not disappoint!

Follow in Hemingway´s footsteps and discover this city full of romance, history and charm.  

Day 2:

Setenil de las Bodegas (Cádiz province). This beautifully unique town in the province of Cádiz is one not to be missed.

Although its history dates back to the Neolithic era, Setenil became very important in the history of the Moorish domination of Spain, resisting the conquer of the Catholic Monarchs up to seven times, hence its name Setenil, ´Septem Nihil´ seven times nothing.  

The town looks spectacular due to its location, surrounded by rocks, olive trees and vineyards producing an excellent wine, which explains the second part of its name ´de las Bodegas´.

Córdoba/ Sevilla

3days/2 nights

From 325€ p.p. ( group of 6 people)

Join us on a wonderful journey back in time, with this 3 day excursion to two of Andalucía´s most wonderful cities!

Day 1/Day 3 Córdoba:

As the highlight of this 3 day excursion, Córdoba is an absolute must when you are in Andalucía; it is very high on our personal list of favourite cities, because of its rich cultural and historic background, still very present in the old city centre. Córdoba’s relaxed and friendly atmosphere makes you feel right at home. It´s stunning Roman bridge and perfect situation by the Guadalquivir River only adds to the beauty of this marvellous city.

The Mezquita/Cathedral, a unique and breath-taking piece of Moorish architecture, breathes the history of the important cultures that inhabited Córdoba. The grounds, home to a Visigoth church, were converted into a mosque in 784, and later, when Córdoba returned to Christian rule during the Reconquista in 1236; it was reconverted into a Catholic church, culminating in the insertion of the 16th century Renaissance Nave.  Both Moorish and Catholic parts of the building are exceptionally well maintained and blend together in a unique way.

The ´Alcázar de los Reyes Cristianos´ (Castle of the Christian Monarchs) is another amazing architectural ensemble not to be missed, being transformed from residence of the Roman Governor, to an Al-Andalusian Alcazar, and finally, by order of king Alfonso XI, to a Christian Castle (1328). The building served as one of the primary residences of the Catholic Kings, Isabella and Ferdinand. It was the castle where the last Moorish king of Granada Boabdil was held prisoner (1483) and where the monarchs met Christopher Colombus as he prepared to take his first voyage to the Americas.

Right next to the Alcázar we can find the Royal Stables, which housed the best stallions and mares of the Andalusian horse breed, which formalized standards, were created by royal decree of Felipe II in 1567. Nowadays an amazing Equestrian show is offered which allows us to admire these magnificent animals up close.

La Judería, Jewish Quarter, home to the third important culture from the 10th to the 15th century, when Christians, Jews and Muslims lived together, still houses the beautiful Synagogue, the Zoco market and the statue dedicated to Maimónides, Jewish philosopher and doctor from Córdoba. Today it is a vibrant part of the city, with its narrow streets, souvenir shops and typical bars.

The Mezquita, as well as the Alcázar and the Roman bridge of Córdoba were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984.

 

Day 2 Sevilla:

As the song goes ` Sevilla tiene un color especial´, and a very special colour this city undoubtedly does have!

This capital city of Andalucía is the birthplace of Flamenco dancing, the home to over 14 000 bitter orange trees and a city not to be missed when visiting Andalucía.

Seville contains 3 Unesco World heritage sites (the Cathedral, the royal Alcázar and the Archive of the Indies), all amazing in their own way!

The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See, is the fourth-largest church in the world (11520m2) and without doubt one of the most impressive buildings in Spain. This Gothic cathedral was built over the original Almohad Mosque (1172) and it was the site of the baptism of Juan of Aragon (1478), the only son of Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile, as well as the location (in its chapels) for the funerary monuments of the cardinals Juan de Cervantes and the legendary Pedro Gonzáles de Mendoza. Christopher Columbus and his son Diego are also buried in the cathedral.

The Giralda bell tower was built as the minaret of the Great Mosque in the time of al-Andalus and the Renaissance top was added by the Catholics after the Reconquista. The Giralda offers an amazing view over the Cathedral and the city of Seville.

Just like the Alcázar of Córdoba, the Real Alcázar de Sevilla takes us back in the rich history of the city (Roman, Moorish, Catholic), it is one of the oldest palaces still in use in the world of which the upper storeys are still occupied by the royal family when they are in Seville.

The General Archive of the Indies of Seville was created at the request of King Carlos III in 1785, in order to centralize all documentation about Spanish Colonies. It keeps documents written by Pizarro and Colombus, amongst others.

The beautiful Plaza de España, situated in the Maria Luisa Park, was built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929 is not to be missed on our tour of Seville. Mixing several styles of Spanish Architecture, the square´s 4 bridges represent the 4 ancient kingdoms of Spain (Castile, Navarre, Aragón and León) and the 48 pavilions are dedicated to a province in Spain. This location was also used for several movies (Lawrence of Arabia, Star Wars,…).
