Spain: Andalucia’s Seville to Córdoba

7 DaysStarting at $5,195

Overview

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 fantastic accommodations and at one 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 families that own the olive groves and even Alhambra’s resident wood inlay expert. Can you tell Andalucia is one of our favorite places on earth?

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.
