From sprawling palaces to towering cathedrals, Andalucía’s most stunning architecture remains brilliantly haunted by the region’s many imperial lives. Venture through the Gothic Catedral de Sevilla, for example, and you’ll find dazzling relics of the great Moorish mosque that once stood in its place. On this trip, we’ll explore the south of Spain through the waves of empires and kingdoms that once ruled it, tracing the rise and fall of Al-Andalus in its spectacular architecture and its penchant for elaborate performance. We’ll wander through palace halls, descend into underground corridors, and glimpse hidden gardens—all to unearth the complex, royal past of the forgotten kingdoms of Sevilla, Córdoba, and Granada.
The total cost of this trip is $3,535. For those traveling by themselves, single accommodations can be provided, subject to availability, at an additional cost of $430. Please contact us to request a single room.
Travelers should be comfortable staying on their feet for long stretches of time, and walking between three and four miles over the course of a day.
