Spain: Under the Andalusian Sky
Discover the enchanting, heralded cities of Cordoba and Granada, where Andalusia’s Roman, Christian, and Moorish past converge so harmoniously. Explore the charming
pueblos blancos, or white village, of Zuheros, with breathtaking views from a rocky promontory. Cycle along roads once trod by adventurers and mystics, through gently rolling countryside graced with olive groves and vineyards. And there’s so much more to savor in this sun-splashed region of Spain. We’ll cook with a local chef, share picnic lunches with families at their cortijos, and enjoy wine and olive oil tastings with the farmers who make them, delighting in the warmth of Andalusian life.
