Journey to Moorish Cordoba & Seville

Venture through the flat plains of La Mancha today, where Don Quixote tilted at windmills as his faithful Sancho Panza looked on. Move on to the ‘bodegas' (wine-cellars) of Valdepeñas for a delicious exploration of the robust flavours & absorbing history of the local vino de mesa. Now up through the Despeñaperros pass to Cordoba, a city that reached its Golden Age under the Moors – the 850 columns of the magnificent Mezquita bear witness to their artistic genius. A local expert takes you inside the mosque, which has been used as a Christian cathedral since the 13th century. There is also time to stroll in the twisting maze of streets & cross the Roman Bridge before continuing to the stunning Andalucían capital.

In front of you, stands the massive Cathedral & Moorish Giralda Tower - once inside, visit the main chapel & tomb of Columbus. There is free time in the afternoon for you to explore at your own pace.

In a scene unchanged since medieval times, overlook the vivid palette of stoney vats & dyes at one of the tanneries.
