El Andalus & the Algarve
Extensive coastal and river cruising on the Guadalquivir and Guadiana Rivers from Seville in Spain to Faro in Portugal
There is a wealth of attractions on offer throughout Spain. The flavour of Andalucia, the vibrancy of Catalonia, the style of Madrid and the majesty of the Sierras are all underpinned by historical intrigue and cultural diversity.
Spain is famous for the golden miles of the popular Costas. But only when you explore its many other gems, from sophisticated cities and traditional villages to the awesome peaks and fertile plains, can you truly understand and appreciate the unique character and passion of this country.
The most southern region of Andalucia is quintessentially Spanish, with its fiery flamenco and traditional bullfighting. Towns to tour include historic Seville and the incredible Granada, home to one of the most brilliant jewels of universal architecture, the 14th-century Alhambra.
If you want immerse yourself in culture, look no further than Catalonia in the east. This prosperous region boasts the bright, cosmopolitan city of Barcelona, the UNESCO protected works of Antoni Gaudí, an enviable array of distinctive architecture, art, fascinating museums, a well-preserved Gothic quarter, and charming and unusual parks.
No visit to Spain is complete without a tour of the capital itself. Chic Madrid’s architectural legacies include the Royal Palace and one of the world’s largest art galleries featuring works from Goya, Velazquez, El Greco, Murillo, Rubens and Rembrandt. Just north of the capital, you’ll find Segovia and its enchanting fairy tale-like Alcázar, which inspired Walt Disney’s Cinderella Castle.
