This is an independent vacation itinerary where you are not travelling in a bus with a group. Our carefully selected partners at the destination take care of you during your stay.
The Andalusí Legacy Route begins in Málaga, and then explores mountainous Ronda, turns toward the Atlantic continuing along the shores of Cádiz and, with a stop near Hispalis in monumental Carmona, continues toward the metropolis that rivaled Baghdad in the year 929, becoming the capital of the caliphate: we?re referring to Córdoba, homeland of the philosopher Seneca.

The Andalusí Legacy Route includes Arabic baths, fortresses, castles and mosques coupled with a delicious culinary and confectionary tradition that has noticeably preserved its Arabic influences. As one would expect, the trip is sprinkled with Andalusian folklore.

This route, more than any other, explores the eight centuries of Muslim presence on the Spanish peninsula. Between Córdoba, the ancient capital of the caliphate, and Granada, seat of the Nazarí kingdom, a landscape of rolling knolls rife with legendary Hispano-Muslim treasures unfolds.

Trip Summary
1 nights in Malaga

Malaga is nowadays a maritime city rich in culture, best known as the birthplace of the artist Pablo Picasso. One of the nicest areas is the Harbor having a lovely park alongside. The most prominent building of the city is Malaga's cathedral built on the place of a mosque. Another important site is the Alcazaba, a castle built on tests of a roman fortress and was expanded and completed in the 14th century by the Nasrides. The archeological museum displays findings from the gothic and greek centuries.


2 nights in Ronda

Ronda is the largest and most famous of the pueblos blancos, with its historic bullring, magnificent views over the deep gorge gashing through the town.The city is situated in a very mountainous area about 2,460 ft above sea level. The Guadalevin River runs through the city, dividing it in two and carving out the steep, 300 plus feet deep El Tajo canyon upon which the city perches. 3 bridges, Puente Romano, Puente Viejo and Puente Nuevo, span the canyon. The Puente Nuevo is the tallest of the bridges, towering 390 ft above the canyon floor. All three serve as some of the city?s most impressive features. In a much-photographed stunning position on the top of the sheer-sided Tajo gorge, Ronda is remarkably appealing with a beautifully preserved old town and many great bars and restaurants.

Recommended Stay: 2 nights
Must See`s:
Historic Quarter, the Bullring, beautiful views, visit nearby villages
Distances:
Seville - 80 miles; Arcos de la Frontera - 54 miles; Malaga (Costa del Sol) - 63 miles


1 nights in Cadiz

One of Spain`s best-kept secrets! Cadiz combines a rich cultural heritage with an upbeat, friendly ambience; not to mention the wonderful local seafood and tapas. Cádiz is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain and one of the oldest in all southwestern Europe. Christopher Columbus set sail from here on his discovery voyage to America. The old town is in the tip of the peninsula, distinctly Moorish in appearance and a gem to explore with its narrow cobbled streets, beautiful plazas (squares), fabulous fish market and numerous tapas bars. and is buzzing with beautiful plazas that are constantly full of life. To get here, you must pass through the new town, an elegant metropolis with excellent beaches.
Recommended Stay: 2 nights

2 nights in Carmona

Carmona was the strongest city of Further Spain in the time of Julius Caesar (100-44 B.C.). The Moors surrounded it with a wall and ornamented it with fountains and palaces. Today, Carmona is a fascinating city with many vestiges that attest its great history like the principal entrance to the town, an old Moorish gateway and the gate on the road to Cordova that is partly of Roman construction.

Cordoba's treasures also include the Alcazar, built by the Christians in 1328; the Calahorra Fort, originally built by the Arabs, which guards the Roman Bridge, and the ancient Jewish Synagogue, now a museum.

Spain

Spain is a country of passion, excitement and enthusiasm unlike any other in Western Europe. Madrid, the magnificent capital, Barcelona, Valencia and Seville are effervescent cosmopolitan cities with some of the best museums and galleries in Europe. Costa-style resorts take much of the coast up although cities such as Alicante, Marbella, Malaga and Mallorca's Palma retain their charm. And everywhere you can find secret hideaways with empty beaches. The best way to explore rural Spain is to visit Galicia and Asturias, the arid villages of Andalucia and the peaks of the Sierra Nevada and the Pyrenees.
