Detailed Description

For eight glorious centuries, the Moors ruled the land of Southern Spain and established a glorious civilization of cultural grandeur and religious tolerance. During this period (from the 8th through 15th centuries), the Moorish kingdom was the most advanced in Europe. Surpassing Paris and Rome, the cities of Al Andalus were flourishing metropolises with running water, public baths, gas-lit street lamps and paved streets. Andalusia was a place of beauty as well as intellectual importance. Islamic Spain produced renowned poets, philosophers, physicians and scientists.

On this weeklong vacation, you’ll discover the intriguing history and enchanting sites of Andalusia. You’ll begin in Málaga, the birthplace of the Islamic kingdom of Al Andalus. Then continue to the dramatically situated village of Ronda, famous for its spectacular scenery and traditional bullfights. Next you’ll visit the fascinating ancient town of Antequera and the lovely historic village of Carmona. The final destination is the legendary city of Córdoba, a wondrous place full of history and charm. Surrounded by a medieval wall, Córdoba boasts one of the most interesting Jewish quarters and the most important Islamic site in Europe.

This tour of Spain is sure to impress you with lifelong memories of the sights, sounds, and tastes of the country with the third most number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
