chauffeur driven tour you will discover two of Andalusia´s
most important historical cities. Granada, once "Granada of the Jews", site of Samuel La Nagid´s Talmudic Academy. Visit the palace of
Alhambra and it´s Generalife Gardens. It was here in 1492 that the decree expelling the Jew from Spain was signed.
The city, sprawled at the foot of the Sierra Nevada, was the last stronghold of the Spanish Moors and their legacy lies all around: it’s in the horseshoe arches, the spicy aromas emanating from street stalls, the teterías (teahouses) of the Albayzín, the historic Arab quarter. Most spectacularly, of course, it’s in the Alhambra, an astonishing palace complex whose Islamic decor and landscaped gardens are without peer in Europe.
Cordoba is one of the three great Moorish cities of Andalusia where the Moorish atmosphere blends with the best produced by its Christian liberators. Capital of Moorish Spanish, with an impressive
8th century Mosque, now a Cathedral. Enjoy a guided visit of the Mosque & Jewish quarter, see the Statue of Maimonides and walk the
Calle de los Judios (Street of the Jews) to the ancient synagogue.
One building alone is reason enough to put Córdoba high on your itinerary: the mesmerising multiarched Mezquita. One of the world's greatest Islamic buildings, the Mezquita is a symbol of the worldly, sophisticated culture that flourished here more than a millennium ago when Córdoba was capital of Islamic Spain and western Europe's biggest, most cultured city. But today's Córdoba is much more than the Mezquita. With a lot to see and do, some charming accommodation, and excellent restaurants and bars, it merits far more than the fleeting visit many travellers give it. Córdoba's real charms unfold as you explore the winding, stone-paved lanes of the medieval city to the west, north and east of the gaudy touristic area immediately around the Mezquita, wandering between wrought-iron balconies and lamps, potted plants, overhanging trees, golden-stone buildings and verdant interior patios, emerging every few minutes on yet another quaint little hidden plaza.
