GROUP ESCORTED TOUR

ABOUT THE TOUR

The Moors, who introduced astronomy, architecture, mathematics and other sciences to Europe, controlled the southern peninsula for 800 years. Seville later became one of the principal ports for expeditions to and from the New World and by the 1600s Seville was the richest city in Europe. Tour the Cathedral, the third largest in Europe which dominates the city and houses the superb tomb of Christopher Columbus. Next to it is the Giralda, now the cathedral’s bell tower but originally a minaret attached to the great mosque which stood on this site. Also visit the Alcazar, the oldest royal palace in Europe still in use. The glittering palace was originally founded by the Moors in the 10th century and then embellished by successive Catholic monarchs. It still retains ornate Moorish features, including exquisite plasterwork and tiles in the impressive state rooms. The palace is surrounded by its famed exotic ‘outdoor rooms’ filled with citrus fruit, olive trees, water gardens and fountains. Other highlights include the 17th century baroque Hospital de los Venerables, the 15th century Mudéjar mansion of Casa de Pilatos and the Museum of Fine Arts with its extensive art collection including works by Murillo, Zurbarán Herrera the younger and Valdés Leal.

Weekend in Seville | The Ultimate Travel Company

Enjoy a day tour to Southern Andalusia’s Moorish capital Cordoba to visit one of the architectural wonders of the world, the Great Mosque, the ‘Mezquita’. The mosque dates from the 8th century and its interior dazzles with a forest of ancient columns mostly reused from earlier Roman ruins. After the Reconquest in 1523, on the orders Charles V, a large cathedral was built right in the centre of the mosque. Also explore the attractive old quarter of the city where orange trees provide shade in between the white-washed houses decked with bright flowers.

Option to attend a performance at the Teatro de la Maestranza, Seville’s opera house built in 1991 and one of the main cultural venues of Expo 1992 (subject to performance schedule).
