Introduction
If you've ever seen the movie El Cid, you know that the Moors invaded Iberia then the Spanish chased them out. Of course, that took almost 800 years—and in the process created Europe's richest and most fascinating culture. Seville is the suavest of cities. The Alhambra? The way water in all its variety is used to cool air that whispers through beautiful stone fretwork is unimaginable. The vastness of la vega, the province's plain, is truly cinematic, scattered with whitewashed villages, punctuated by ruined alcazares (fortresses), and carpeted in vineyards, swatches of gnarled olive trees and stately groves of poplar. We stay in a fantastic parador and several of Spain's finest 5-star hotels. And the walks—in both city and country, through mosques and Spanish palaces—are gentle revelations every step of the way. Our local guides are exceptionally well-connected, so you get introductions to ceramicists, families that own the olive groves, even Alhambra's resident wood inlay expert. Can you tell Andalucia is one of our favorite places on earth?
Picture yourself...
  • Rambling winding streets of whitewashed villages
  • Strolling through olive groves to a private tasting
  • Exploring a palatial "paradise on Earth"
Itinerary at a glance
DAY 1 - SEVILLE
We meet in Seville (1 night) and enjoy a leisurely stroll that takes in King Ferdinand's Alcazar and the chic shopping district.

DAYS 2-3 - RONDA
Journeying into the Andalucian countryside, we check into our parador in Ronda (2 nights) and take a guided walk to explore the clifftop town. A walk among green hills to one of Los Pueblos Blancos ("the white villages") ends with a tasting at a traditional olive oil mill. We’ll also walk the banks of a lovely river and enjoy a wine tasting at a vineyard where the buildings date back to the 16th century.

DAYS 4-5 - LOJA
On a morning drive, we pause for a look at large colony of flamingos, and then amble amid the natural pillars of El Torcal National Park. From a luxurious country resort that is one of the Leading Hotels of the World (2 nights), we journey into nearby Granada for a personally guided visit to the Alhambra and shopping in the alcaizeria.

DAYS 6-7 - CORDOBA
We’ll walk in fragrant forests before arriving at our palatial 5-star hotel in Córdoba. Visits include the elaborate Mesquita (mosque). After our farewell dinner, it’s time for a remarkable up-close flamenco performance you will never forget.

“We loved the well-organized days, the wonderful hotels, and having a guide that cared about each one of us. On each Classic Journeys trip we have taken, we experienced what it is like to live in that country; we spend time in small villages and see how the people there live.”

These 15th century palaces, now combined into a four star hotel, are located in the Santa Cruz Quarter, five minutes walking‐distance from the cathedral. The hotel’s beautiful guest rooms are individually decorated in Andalucian style.
