Highlights of Andalusia

Embark on a carefully crafted, magical journey around Moorish Andalucia, discovering some of Spain’s most famous World Heritage Sites and delving into the delicious flavors of Spanish cuisine. Your local guides will introduce you to such sites as Granada’s Alhambra Palace, Cordoba’s Mosque, and Sevilla’s majestic Cathedral.

In Andalusia history and myth blend as seamlessly as the international culinary influences that meld into its delicious cuisine. From the time of the first cave paintings, this region has seen profound effects of the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, Romans, Visigoths, and Vandals. But it was above all the Moors, who named the region “Al-Andalus” and who rules for eight centuries, who left the largest imprint on the region.

So join us in discovering this unique and culturally rich land on a week-long exploration of its food, sites, and people, while staying in Granada, Cordoba, Sevilla, and Malaga.
