The gardens of Andalusia are formed by legends, fragrances and colours.
They are renowned for their beauty and characteristic layout, with the element of water always present in the form of beautiful fountains, another exponent of the Moorish legacy.
For the Moors the garden was the most important element in the house and they took great care in designing them and always keeping them perfect.
This legacy remains today and the focal point and the social life of the Andalusian house still revolves around the central patio.
In the old centres of the cities of Seville, Cordoba and Granada, there are numerous wonderful private patios (courtyards) that will open their doors only for us.
We have selected the finest Moorish, Renaissance and Tropical gardens hidden in this historic corner of Spain for your contemplation, together with other stunning historical sites.
You will enjoy exclusive access to beautiful patios and gardens in private mansion houses.
Once there you will meet the hosts who will indulge you with a glass of wine and some succulent local products.
You will experience the Spanish Joie de vivre being part of it.

“The holiday was so much more than we could have imagined, so many memories. The courtyards, both private and public, gardens in wide variety, full of spring blooms. The amazing architecture, moorish and christian, cathedrals, the Mezquita, love those keyhole doorways! Enjoyed all our local guides. Rosa, you were very flexible and open to suggestions, eg adding the olive oil tasting. Standout venues for lunches, in particular at the winery with the solera barrels. Excellent accommodation in a wide variety of great, traditional hotels, especially the one in Córdoba."
“This was a thoughtfully curated and organized tour which highlighted all of the best things that Andalusia has to offer. Just Explore team did a great job of choosing interesting hotels in central locations, introducing the group to some of the finest restaurants serving local cuisine, and providing experiences in special palaces and private estates that would otherwise have been impossible to visit. Along with this we were able to see all of the major tourist attractions in each city as well as the most beautiful gardens. It was truly a fabulous experience and I can only offer the highest praise for the service that was provided by this travel team. The Garden, Wine and Lunch experience at a family-owned winery in Montilla-Moriles region was definitely a highlight. The gracious host, offered the group a glimpse into a privileged life where we saw her beautiful gardens and home and were served a wonderful meal. Another highlight was the flower tasting experience in Cordoba in the patio of a private home”
