Where we're going!

Southern Spain’s most visited region is called “Andalusia”, whose popularity comes from its warm weather, rich culture and history, gastronomy, music, art, festive atmosphere, and its friendly people.

We will be exploring several cities in Andalusia, starting with Seville, the glamorous capital city of Andalusia, which contains three UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

From Seville we will head south to visit the city of “Jerez de la Frontera” to taste its sherry wine (where sherry wine was invented) and to watch the famous equestrian “Andalusian Horse Dance Show”. After dancing horses and sherry wine, we continue south to the city of Cádiz, located on the Mediterranean Sea. Cádiz is considered the oldest city in Europe, founded by the Phoenicians in 1100 B.C.

From Cádiz we will cross the border to Gibraltar, the British overseas territory located on the southern tip of Spain and dominated by the Rock of Gibraltar, a 426 meter-high limestone ridge. After exploring Gibraltar we’ll head east to Marbella, one of Spain’s most popular port cities, combining luxury, local charm, and historical architecture. We’ll continue our journey back to Málaga for some afternoon pickleball and a festive dinner celebration.

Pickleball is scheduled for our visit to Seville where we’ll have a chance to play with the locals.

We visit the magnificent Royal Alcázar fortress (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the impressive Seville cathedral and Giralda tower. The Seville cathedral has been home to Christian worship since the 13th century when the city was reconquered by the Catholic monarchs from its Muslim rulers. It is also home to the grave of Christopher Columbus. The Royal Alcázar fortress, originally constructed in 913, is home to the Palace of Don Pedro, one of the site’s most impressive features, which was built in the 14th century by King Pedro. While exploring the city’s winding streets you’ll experience the energetic and charismatic culture of Southern Spain. The city center if full of a wide range of restaurants and “tapas bars” (bars serving local appetizers) to choose from – and only a 10-minute walk from our hotel. Along the way back to the hotel you can enjoy some of Seville’s spectacular monuments illuminated at night.

Founded 3,000 years ago by the Phoenicians as a colony called Xera, Jerez is now a hub of cultural importance in Andalusia. Its name “Jerez”, meaning “sherry”, alludes to its history as the birthplace of the famous white wine. During Christian rule, the Catholic monarchs began the prosperous trade of the city’s titular wine with the English. The city has a mixture of Muslim and Christian history which can be seen throughout its architecture. Most significantly, the Arab fortress (Alcázar) of Jerez is home to Arab baths, the stunning Garden of Olives, and many innate pools and fountains which outline the Baroque palace of Villavicencio built within the walls of the old fortress.

Surrounded almost entirely by the Atlantic ocean, Cádiz is known for its delicious seafood, meandering streets, sunny beaches, and cheerful locals whose alegrías (flamenco songs) can be heard throughout the city. The impressive Cathedral of Cádiz was commissioned in 1716 but wasn’t finished until 1838, creating a mixture of baroque and neoclassical architectural styles.  
  • Lunch: On your own

Its Palladian architecture differentiates it from the white-walled cities of Southern Spain, showcasing the city’s unique combination of cultures. Often referred to as “The Rock”, the city was first used by the ancient Phoenicians and Carthaginian sea-traders between 800 BC and 200 BC. Later, it was a significant location during the Muslim conquest of Spain and a stronghold during the reign of the Catholic monarchs. British Gibraltar began after the conquest led by Admiral Sir George Rooke in 1704 and the Great Siege of 1779. We’ll learn about the impact Gibraltar has had on world history throughout our guided tour, and we’ll take the 6-minute cable car ride to the top of “the Rock” to experience in the magnificent views, as well as the famous Barbary apes that reside on the Rock.
