Day 2 - Plaza España and Alcazar

After breakfast at your hotel, your guide will take you for a walking tour to Plaza España and Alcazar. Although most of cities in Spain have a square called “Plaza España” this one is, surely, the most impressive. The square is located in the city centre and it has a fountain in the middle, rounded for a small lake where you can even rent a boat. The building behind gives a very unique and traditional look to the place.

Alcázar is a royal palace which was built by the Moorish rulers who occupied the foreland in the 8th century and since 1987 it has been declared as a World Heritage site.
The Alcázar has provided the setting for a number of films, including Lawrence of Arabia, the Kingdom of Heaven and Game of Thrones.

After breakfast at your hotel, you will explore the cobbled stone streets, walk around and admire the architecture of the Old Town and soaked up the atmosphere. The streets are lined with craft shops, tapas bars and courtyards decorated with tiles.

Here you will visit the Museum of Fine Arts which has one of the largest collections of Spanish art, and displays mostly paintings and sculptures, mainly from Spanish artists from the medieval to the modern age. Special attention is given to local artists such as Esteban Murillo, Luis de Vargas, Francisco de Zurbarán and Juan de Valdés Leal.

Day 4 - Cordoba

After breakfast at your hotel, you will be transferred to Granada including a stopover in Cordoba where you will explore the city including the Mezquita.

Day 5 - Granada

Today, after breakfast in your hotel, you will have a full day excursion of Granada including the Royal Chapel and the Alhambra as these two are the pride of Granada.

The construction of the Royal Chapel of Granada was ordered in the 16th century by the Catholic Monarchs as a place of burial. Its interior shows the beautiful Carrara marble mausoleums and one of the most important collection of Flemish paintings of Queen Elizabeth. Then will be guided you through the Alhambra, the last Moorish palace, highlighting the splendour of the civilization in the 13th and 14th centuries. And you will learn more about its history, the Islamic architecture design and enjoy the gorgeous panoramic scenery of the Sierra Nevada.

The Spanish saying goes: “Quien no ha visto Granada, no ha visto nada,” meaning that “One who has not seen Granada has not seen anything”.
