Enjoy a Group Coach Tour from Lisbon down to Andalusia over to Morocco then up to Toledo and Madrid ending back in Lisbon...


Old Quarter of Caceres - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from LisbonCACERES: If Spain had anything akin to the American Far West, it must have been Extremadura -the land beyond the River Duero- the area that gave birth to so many doughty Conquistadors. Cáceres (pop. 74,589), named World Heritage City in 1985, sober, seigneurial and proud, lies in the heart of this conquistador homeland. Largely medieval, the town walls date from the time of the Almohads and even preserve some Roman sections. Twelve of the thirty towers which once protected the enclosure are still standing.






North wall of Mezquita, Cordoba  - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from Lisbon


CORDOBA: Once the largest city of Roman Spain, Cordoba later formed the heart of the western Islamic empire. Today, the city is a typical bustling, noisy Andalusian city, with lots of atmosphere, fascinating sites, intriguing small streets and shops and the inevitable fabulous choice of restaurants and bars.









Plaza de España of Seville - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from LisbonSEVILLE: Seville is a city steeped in history. Throughout the narrow streets and main avenues - in fact, virtually everywhere you cast your eye, there are magnificent monuments and buildings which stand as a legacy to this city`s fascinating heritage. Many of these date from the time of the Moorish conquest (712), such as the Giralda, the Alcazar, and the Cathedral which was originally built as a mosque by the Almohads in the late 12th century, and later became the largest Gothic church in the world.





View of Ronda - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from LisbonRONDA: Ronda stands on a mighty promontory, or outcropping, which made it impregnable to the Christian armies until the very last years of the Reconquest. This plateau is slashed into two main quarters by a deep cleft in the rock, spanned by the 18th century Puente Nuevo or "New Bridge", which is the chief landmark for all itineraries. Modern (largely built in the 18th century) Ronda is the quarter to the North of the gorge, called El Mercadillo, with the Plaza de España, the site of Ronda`s recently built Parador, the spectacular walkway along the river gorge with superb views of the countryside below.






View of Tangier - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from Lisbon

TANGIER
: Tangier retains its powerful charm to this day. From the previously nefarious alleys in the Petit Socco area to the many café terraces which are more than ever avant-gardist. The tangier medina has always fascinated artists. The old Mendoub Palace, built in 1929, situated to the North of the medina, is now a mansion for foreign VIPs.







The courtyard and the minaret of Bou Inania Madrasa in Fes, Morocco - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from Lisbon
FES
: The imperial city is the capital of traditional Moroccan culture. Cradle of knowledge, for which its superb medersas are a flamboyant symbol. Fes, can be proud of possessing a genuine artistic know-how for ceramic, woodworking and copperware crafts. The old part of Fès with its numerous souks is a paradise for craftsmen whose timelessness will charm you. You must stroll through its alleys in order to truly appreciate the architectural marvels found there






Meknes Walled City - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from Lisbon
MEKNES: Meknes is an engaging city which is pleasant to live in. Despite the wealth of its historic heritage, it has retained the simplicity of its origins. The town`s heart beats close to the magnificent and peerlessly beautiful Bab Mansour gate. From dusk, the Place El-Hedime and its great market welcome a host of merchants, jugglers and fire-swallowers. An unforgettable popular and medieval atmosphere.







The Oudayas Kasbah in Rabat, Morocco - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from LisbonRABAT: Majestically beautiful and proud of its heritage, Rabat will reveal its treasures nestled behind imposing walls. A fortress erected at the edge of the Rabat medina, the Oudayas Kasbah keeps watch over the city. The magnificent gate pierces the elaborate walls of the citadel and opens on Jamaâ street. On the left stands the city`s oldest mosque, El Atiqa, which was built in 1150. Its white-washed houses give the city that Mediterranean character. Your walk could end at café Maure, where the view of the bay and Salé is breathtaking..





Alhambra Palace of Granada - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from Lisbon

GRANADA:
The name Granada is ancient and mysterious. It may mean "great castle", for the Roman fortress which once stood on the Albaicin Hill. When the Moors came here, the town was largely inhabited by Jews, for which they called it Garnat-al-Yahud - Granada of the Jews. The Jews are said to have been one of the first peoples to settle in Spain, even before the Romans.







Old Quarter of Toledo - Group Tour of Andalusia and Morocco from LisbonTOLEDO: The first-time visitor to Toledo cannot help be struck by the city as a whole, impregnated as it is with such a weight of history and wealth of culture. The town, perched on a hill skirted by a sharp bend in the River Tagus, has remained almost unchanged since the end of the Middle Ages, surrounded by curtain walls and formed by a winding maze of alleyways and lanes that meander up and down, crisscrossing and revealing, to the visitor its historical sights and secret corners. Toledo is a city to be explored on foot, time and time again, following itineraries that lead to the artistic and cultural high spots, and losing oneself among the nooks and crannies of its tangled web.





Madrid Royal Palace - Group Coach Tour of Madrid from LisbonMADRID: The capital of Spain, located in the heart of the península and right in the center of de Castillian plain 646 meters above sea level, has a population of over three millions.
