This trip is a pure delight for those who find history, architecture and art fascinating.
We have designed for you a magical journey around Andalusia which will allow you to discover some of Spain’s main World Heritage Sites as well as our interesting culture.
The cultural influences that have washed over Andalusia since the first paintings were etched on cave walls are numerous: Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, and Vandals.
But the most influential of all were unarguably that of the Moors, who named the region “Al-Andalus” and whose eighth-century rule left an indelible imprint on the region’s culture and customs.
On this journey you will visit many sites which represent the Arte Mudejar, a Hispanic-Muslim art only present in Andalusia and admired worldwide for its beauty and delicacy. But also stunning historic buildings from the Gothic and Renaissance times, like the Cathedral of Seville and from the 3 different religions like the Synagogue of Cordoba dated from the 14th century.
Places like the Alcázar in Sevilla will leave you speechless.
Its rooms with gilded domes, its walls covered with azulejos and its magnificent gardens have borne witness to some of the most important chapters in the history of Spain.
This is just an example of the legacy we will explore together on this Classic Cultural Tour.
Accompanied by one of our local tour directors and guided by art historian experts, you will explore and learn more about the history of extraordinary places in the region such as Granada’s legendary Alhambra Palace, Cordoba’s distinctive Mosque, and Sevilla’s majestic Cathedral, but also about hidden gems that aren’t so well-known, yet are truly master pieces.

“If you are planning a trip to Spain, put your trust in Rosa with Just Explore.We have travelled as a family extensively over the years and understand how challenging organizing trips can be. Rosa ensured that every step along our journey was made easy. I am certain that we would not have received the same standard of service if we had booked our trip either on our own or through one of the other travel agencies claiming to be specialists. Rosa’s personal relationships with the hotels, tours guides, excursion locations (like wine and olive growers) as well as the transport companies and even the individual drivers ensure that you will always be well looked after. If you are interested in a tour where you can go to the front of the line, accommodation to your exacting requirements, worry free transfers and experiences personalized to your interests, go no further than Just Explore.”
“My wife and I spent 14 days in Spain touring the Andalusian region. The entire trip was planned exactly as we expected. As soon as we started working with Rosa, we felt so comfortable that we knew that Spain was the place. She is absolutely passionate about her work and her country. We spoke on WhatsApp while planning the details of the itinerary and during our stay in Spain she stayed in contact with us to make sure that all arrangements were going as scheduled. Rosa put the personal touches on everything, from the visit to the vineyards, the olive oil grove and the private drivers who took us through the countryside on our way to Granada, Ronda, and Seville. We were so fortunate to see Andalusia through the love of its people. Everyone that helped us, drivers, guides, Flamenco experts, foodies etc are so proud of their region. I really think this area is heaven on earth!”
