Package Itinerary

Day 1: Seville to Cordoba.

The tour begins with a scenic one-hour bus journey to Córdoba passing many beautiful cities such as Carmona, La Louisiana, and La Carlota. We will then arrive at the city which once was the light of the world when it enjoyed the position of being a caliphate city.

Cordoba offers an enormous cultural and historic legacy. We will visit the gorgeous Mosque-Cathedral declared World Heritage Site, which is considered the most important monument in the Islamic West. Its shimmering golden mosaics and endless row of red and white striped arches make it a visual delight. We won´t miss The Christian Kings Alcazar, The Jewish Quarter with its narrow streets and white-washed houses full of flowers, and the only Synagogue in Andalusia. We will also walk along the lovely “Calle de las Flores” one of the most traditional places of Cordoba.

Day 2: City Tour

You will discover with our friendly local guide Medina Azahara, one of the most important archaeological sites in Spain, built in the tenth century at the wish of the Caliph Abd-al Rahman III, using the money bequeathed to him by his favorite concubine, Al-Zahra. This palace city was designed to be the capital of a new province of the Caliphate of Cordoba.

Our next stop will transport you to the heart of the beautiful city of Carmona. It is located on a strategic hill with panoramic views which are simply breathtaking, the reason why many different civilizations decided to establish in this city.

Your local guide will show you the most important monuments of this historical city, like "La Madre de Dios" and "Las Descalzas". We will end our tour by contemplating the gorgeous views which offer that Carmona´s Parador, and with this unforgettable image, we will come back to Seville.
