4 days in Andalucia! Córdoba, Sevilla, Málaga and Granada!
Andalucia, the second biggest autonomous community of Spain, is waiting for us with open arms! A land of sunshine, a place of tradition and passion, an extraordinary destiny woven between the shores of Africa and America… Andalucía was conquered by the Arabs at the beginning of the 8th century, and it is to them that it owes its architectural treasure and its name.
During 4 days, we will explore wonderful Andalucía, a region that has a lot to offer, famous for its past that draws from the sources of the Orient. We will have the chance to discover and visit 4 of the most beautiful cities in Spain, Cordóba, Sevilla, Malaga and Granada.
The Mezquita of Cordóba, the magnificent Plaza de España and the Royal Palace of the Alcazar in Sevilla, the beaches and the fortress Alcazaba of Malaga, and last but not least, the Alhambra of Granada… this is what you can expect if you travel with us!

We will begin our journey in breathtaking Granada. Rich by its culture and history, it is marked by the influences of Moorish, Jewish, Roman, and Christian traditions… Its authentic barrios immerse you in an irresistible Andalusian atmosphere. The Alhambra of Granada, the most majestic Islamic monument in Europe, is a must-see and your efforts will be rewarded with a magnificent view from the Mirador San Nicolas.
We will then head to Málaga, located on the Costa del Sol!
The birthplace of Picasso, Málaga is also considered the cradle of cubic art. One of the oldest cities in the world, the city has, besides its beaches, its own fortress, the Alcazaba, located high up and from which you can admire the city of Malaga. The castle, the Picasso museum and the Archbishop’s Palace are places not to be missed. After climbing the hill to the fortress, reward yourself in a typical tapas bar and then relax on one of Málaga’s beautiful beaches.
After Málaga, we will go to Sevilla… the capital of Andalucía. You can explore its Moorish palaces, its trendy neighborhoods, and Andalusian gardens and enjoy its exquisite tapas. Sevilla is a mosaic of cultures and has 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The must-see sites of the city are without a doubt the royal palace of the Alcazar, the Plaza de Espana, the cathedral (the largest gothic building in the world), and its famous Giralda. Did you know that Alcazar was the filming place for the world-famous TV series Game of Thrones?… you will be amazed, for sure!
And last but not least… our trip will end in another famous city of Andalucía, Córdoba! How can we not pass by Córdoba when we go to Andalucía? The city of Córdoba, influenced by the occupation of several kingdoms throughout history. Córdoba opens the doors of its famous mosque-cathedral and its old Jewish quarter where you will lose yourself with delight.
Famous for the Mezquita of Córdoba, a Unesco World Heritage Site, this impressive mosque is worth a visit and is a must-see in the city. It is the most important monument of the Islamic West and you will be fascinated by it. And what is more, the Roman bridge of Córdoba was also the filming place of Game of Thrones (season 5)!
Optional Hiking activities (Caminito del Rey & Hiking Mulhacen)
CAMINITO DEL REY
Before 2015, it used to be called “The Most Dangerous Walk in the World”, but now it is one of the safest hikes. The wooden footpath suspended to the cliffs is, however, not suitable for people with vertigo since it is 700 meters above the river
In Spain, Pico Mulhacén (3479 meters) is the highest peak in the Peninsula, and the second-highest in the whole country (the highest is in Canary Islands – Teide 3715 meters). Located in Sierra Nevada Natural Park with beautiful landscapes and awe-inspiring views where snow can still be found in June. Making new friends in nature is a great way to have fun together and make memories that can last a lifetime.
