Spain ~ Andalucia in a Parador

with Heather Hodges

ABOUT THE TOUR

Embrace the soul-stirring, romantic spirit of southern Spain on a seven-night, small-group adventure in Andalucía!

Spend seven nights in a first-class, modern parador in Antequera, a medieval town crowned by a 14th-century Moorish fortress, and discover Neolithic tombs outside the city. From there, venture off to see the beautiful legacy of the Moors, who ruled the region for eight centuries. Marvel at the courtyards and fountains of the Alhambra in Granada, the iconic red-and-white arches of La Mezquita in Córdoba and the imposing Alcázar in Sevilla, Spain’s cultural heart. In the hilltop town of Ronda, savor breathtaking views high over El Tajo Gorge. From a countryside wine tasting to a passionate flamenco performance, this engaging journey offers a line-up of unforgettable moments! Enjoy insightful lectures on Andalucía’s history and culture, a generous meal plan that includes lunch within the Alhambra, and wine with dinner. No single supplement!

 

$3,645 per person, plus airfare and taxes. Singles waitlist.
