Discover the 'real' Spain from its traditional whitewashed villages to its lavish Moorish architecture on this grand tour.
After flying to Malaga, on Spain's Costa del Sol, we'll transfer you to your overnight hotel in Mijas.
We'll take to the road this morning and travel through the Andalucian Mountains to Jerez. On the way we're going to stop at the picturesque cliff-top town of Ronda. Here, a Local Guide will talk you through all its highlights. You'll see the 600ft deep El Tajo gorge that divides the town in two and the ancient bridge spanning it. You'll also head to the southern side of town to admire its typically Andalucian whitewashed houses.
Our destination today is Granada, which we will reach via a visit to Cordoba. This city's crowning glory is one of the world's greatest Islamic buildings, the Mezquita, or Great Mosque. After a tour inside, we'll have time to explore the maze of winding streets and picturesque squares of the Jewish quarter.
You really can't visit Granada without a trip to the Alhambra Palace, so as well as your city tour today, that's exactly where you're heading. Built by the Moors in the 13th and 14th centuries, this magnificent complex is complemented perfectly by the lovely Generalife Gardens, which you'll also discover.
You will have the option to book your own flights independently with the operator.
