Cordoba Discovery Walk

With four World Heritage Sites to its name and a history that stretches back more than 2,000 years, Cordoba is an enchanting destination for a cultural break. Uncover the secrets of some of its most celebrated sights on a private two-hour walking tour with an official local guide. You’ll begin at the building that’s become a symbol of the city, the Mezquita or Mosque-Cathedral. Here, as you wander through the various sections, from the earliest part of the mosque with its distinctive horseshoe arches to the cathedral’s 16th-century courtyard of orange trees, you’ll come to understand something of Cordoba’s fascinating past. From here you’ll head to another World Heritage Site, the Jewish quarter, a labyrinth of atmospheric alleyways where you’ll stop to visit the 14th-century synagogue and El Zoko, a 16th-century manor house that’s now a delightful craft market.

Historical Granada

Granada’s most iconic sight is the breathtaking Alhambra, which thoroughly deserves its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At night, floodlit on its dark hill, it seems to float above the city like an enchanted citadel; in the cool light of day or the warm glow of sunset, it remains equally mesmerising. Inside, of course, is just as magical, especially in the company of an official guide with a love of art, history and stories of court life. As you explore every corner of this richly decorated Moorish palace, wandering through courtyards almost filled with pools that reflect the buildings around and marvelling at the elaborate wooden ceilings and intricately tiled façades, you’ll hear tales of intrigue, rivalry and passion concerning the Nasrid dynasty that ruled over Granada for 250 years.

Walk Through The History Of Seville

Seville’s magnificent royal palace complex, the Real Alcázar, is a microcosm of the city’s rich history. Beginning life as first a fort and then an Arab palace before becoming a residence for the Christian kings after the Reconquest, it’s a glorious melting pot of different architectural styles. On this private guided visit, you’ll explore inside and out, through lavishly decorated rooms such as the 16th-century Salón de Los Tapices – named after its massive tapestries – and ornate Mudéjar patios. More recently, the Real Alcázar and other spots in Seville became the kingdom of Dorne in Game of Thrones, and fans have the chance to visit the various locations in the palace and the cobbled streets beyond and hear anecdotes about the filming. If that’s not your thing, the guide will tailor your walk through the historic quarter to your particular interests, whether you’re fascinated by local crafts or have a taste for tapas.
