5-Day Southern Spain Tour: Seville, Cordoba, Toledo, Ronda, Costa del Sol and Granada from Madrid

February 16, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

Take your time with five days to explore some of Spain’s most famous cities. With Moorish Kingdoms in Granada, thriving resorts of the Costa del Sol, and the many UNESCO World Heritage sites in Cordoba, Seville and Toledo, this is a tour deep into the heart of Andalucia.

Andalucia is one of the most attractive areas within the Mediterranean regions, due to its mild climate, environmental nature, its history and culture. It was consecutively conquered by Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians and Romans, later by Vandals and Suevians, before the Arabs occupied the region during five centuries.

Toledo is a city that once visited, never ceases to rest in the imagination. The fortified medieval city built on a hill overlooking the Tagus River, is without a doubt one of the densest monumental cities in the world. It also lies claim to being the hometown of Spanish artist El Greco and houses many of his famous works.

At the foot of Sierra Nevada, between the Darro and Genil rivers, lies Granada. The last city reconquered in 1492, Granada has a distinctly Arab influence with the impressive UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Alhambra and Generalife Gardens amongst the highlights.

Ronda is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Andalucia region and you will join a sightseeing tour of this beautiful town of Celtic origin. With the Cathedral (Roman, Arabic and Gothic styles), the Old Quarter, the Bull Ring (oldest one in Spain) and the magnificent Tajo Gorge, Ronda has plenty of sites to discover during your time there.

Built on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, Seville displays a rich Arab legacy. Every street and square that makes up the historic quarter of the Andalucian capital bursts with joy and activity.
