Classic Cultural Tour

An explosion of beauty for the senses

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.
