Itinerary

Day 1: ARRIVAL SEVILLE

Stop At: Seville Airport, A-4, Km. 532, 41020 Sevilla, Spain
Arrive at Seville airport, meet the rent-a-car representative, and pick up your car. Discover Seville and visit some of the capital’s top attractions such as the Royal Alcazar palace and the cathedral – both UNESCO World Heritage Sites – as well as Santa Cruz, its most picturesque inner-city neighbourhood. The Royal Alcazar traces its origins to the 10th century when it became the palace of a Moorish caliph. Visit the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Sea and see its glorious Giralda belfry, Seville’s most iconic symbol. The building, a former mosque from the 12th century, is now the third-largest church in the world. Explore lively Santa Cruz, the former Jewish quarter and today the most traditional neighbourhood in the old town. It is a warren of whitewashed lanes, alleys, archways and patios, each with a historical tale to tell. Enjoy a tapas lunch in a typical restaurant (not included).

Today, this history casts an enchanting spell over Ronda, retaining a beguiling timelessness in the maze of whitewashed cobbled alleys leading to the famous New Bridge over the 120-metre-deep El Tajo Gorge. Admire the Mudejar towers, Renaissance palaces and baroque churches during your visit. Discover the imposing Gothic-Renaissance Church of Santa Maria la Mayor, built in the 1480s by the Castilian conquerors on the site of the Moorish great mosque and see what a traditional Andalusian house looks like inside with a visit to the eclectic-modernist Casa de Don Juan de Bosco.
