Experience the essence of Andalucía, from its Roman, Moorish, and medieval monuments to its food, flamenco and penchant for fiestas; as you tour from southern shores to Sierra Nevada scenery, visiting vibrant Seville, Cordoba’s historic core, and grandiose Granada

One dramatically sited cliff-top town, two beautifully bucolic districts, and three richly historic cities all come together on this enthralling tour, to present every aspect of Andalucía.

The town is remarkable Ronda, set on either side of a plunging gorge, with the Puente Nuevo bridging the gap between its 15th-century ‘new town’ and the older Moorish area.

The two rural regions each boast a unique feature. Set high on the Sierra Nevada slopes, Las Alpujarras is known for its micro-ecology, the farming villages forming a fertile band of greenery between the snowline above and the dry scrubland beneath. Axarquía is famed for its micro-climate of reliably sub-tropical weather, supporting the area’s citrus groves and its claim of ‘the best climate in Europe’.

The three cities chart Andalucía’s history in their architecture, from Cordoba’s sixteen-arched Roman Bridge, and Moorish Mezquita mosque/cathedral; to Seville’s medieval Juderia lanes, 1920s Plaza de España, and modern Metropol Parasol; and perhaps the jewel in the crown, the ancient town of Illibris which became the Moorish city of Granada, its 14th century Alhambra ‘palace city’ replete with royal buildings and majestic gardens, its 16th-century confections including the cathedral.

Tapas at a Cortijo

Enjoy a typical Andalucían tapas lunch at a private home (cortijo), located in the hills of Nerja overlooking the Mediterranean and Frigiliana village. Tapas (originating from the Spanish word ‘tapar’ to cover) can be served hot or cold and combined to create a full meal.

Day 1 Fly from London to Malaga. Travel to Ronda and tour its Moorish and medieval sectors divided by the dramatic El Tajo gorge. Continue to Seville for three nights at the 4-star Novotel Sevilla.

Day 2 Morning walking tour of Seville, visiting Seville’s most modern landmark, the Metropol Parasol, completed in 2011, then continue through cobbled alleys of the ‘Barrio de Santa Cruz’ former Jewish Quarter, view the huge Gothic cathedral, its iconic Giralda bell tower and the tomb of Christopher Columbus, and passing the city’s 18th-century bullring by the Guadalquivir River. With the rest of the day at leisure to perhaps visit the Real Alcázar. (B, D)

Day 3 Walking tour includes the Plaza del Museo, hemmed by the Museum of Fine Arts in its 17th-century former monastery, and home to a bronze statue of artist Bartolome Esteban Murrillo; continue to and visit the Plaza de España, built in 1929 and regally rimmed in Revival styles of Moorish, Baroque and Renaissance grandeur. (B)

Day 4 Travel to Córdoba for a city tour including the Jewish Quarter, its medieval maze of streets and alleys; and the most famous marker of Andalucía’s Moorish/Christian heritage, the vast ‘Mezquita’, a 16th-century cathedral within the 10th-century Great Mosque. Continue to Granada for three nights at the 4-star Hotel Tent. (B)

Day 5 A walking tour of Granada includes the 16th-century Royal Chapel, and introduces you to the city’s vibe and variety, where street stalls and flamenco bars intermingle with Moorish and Renaissance architecture, Islamic and Christian culture. Later, visit the Alhambra, where royal palaces, restful patios and reflecting ponds are equally complemented by fountains, orchards and waterfall stairways of the Generalife Gardens. (B)

Day 6 A scenic journey through the southern side of the Sierra Nevada mountains takes you to the rugged, rural landscapes of Las Alpujarras district. A clutch of villages clinging to the slopes, and formerly known for silk production, they sit in a high-altitude oasis of greenery, watered by the melting snow above, and overlooking the arid terrain below. Visit Capileira in the Poqueira Gorge, the second-highest village in mainland Spain, for a tasting of Serrano ham and a tapas lunch. Optional evening flamenco show (bookable locally). (B, L)

Day 7 Pass through citrus and olive groves of the Axarquía area, bordered by the mountains and the Mediterranean, blessed with a sub-tropical climate, and boasting tranquillity and old-world charm. Visit an olive mill and enjoy a Special Event lunch. Continue to Málaga for an overnight stay at the 4-star Soho Bahia Málaga Hotel. (B, L)

Day 8 Return flight to London. (B)
