Guided Walking : Europe

Spain: Granada to Seville

Moderate to Challenging Terrain: 6-12 Miles Daily

Spain: Granada to Seville

From the cliff-top grandeur of the Alhambra—Granada’s lavish complex of Moorish and baroque palaces—to Seville’s rambling streets and tapas bars, Andalucia’s vibrant flamenco culture delights. Picturesque moments await you at every turn in this entrancing region: flowered balconies in whitewashed villages, shepherds’ paths across striking limestone outcrops, oak forests with gurgling streams. Walking here, you’ll cross dramatic mountain ridgelines through stands of Spanish fir and stop by tiny villages graced with the scent of orange trees. You’ll explore medieval Ronda, a city perched above the 350-foot-deep Guadalevin River Gorge, and linger in its ornate mosques, stately courtyards, and cliff-top gardens. Seville’s flirty, crooked streets offer vibrant Moorish mosaics, hidden gardens of orchids and palms, age-old bullfighting rings, and the 10th-century Alcázar royal palace, whose Islamic and neoclassical details express the region’s rich cultural influences. Like the province’s signature drink, jerez (sherry), Andalusia is a sweet and rich destination that packs a punch you’ll savor.


Tour Highlights:
  • Tour the unparalleled Alhambra, an ensemble of fortresses and gardens overlooking Granada, and discover its intricate Moorish arches, murmuring fountains, baroque palaces, and colorful gardens.
  • Cap an exquisite meal of saffron-scented seafood paella with an intimate flamenco performance by a master classical guitarist and dancer.
  • Stay in Grazalema, a classic pueblo blanco (white town), and enjoy the contrast of its whitewashed walls, red-tiled roofs, and surrounding green countryside.
