This trip has been
months in the planning and is what we proudly feel is now worthy
of our audience It will make for an amazing journey for
sure, taking us to Barcelona for 3-nights, Mallorca for 4-nights
and Seville for 4-nights.
start off in Barcelona for our first 3 nights. The first human
settlements in Barcelona date back to Neolithic times. The city
itself was founded by the Romans who set up a colony called Barcino
at the end of the 1st century BC. The 20th century ushered in
widespread urban renewal throughout Barcelona city, culminating
in its landmark Eixample district. The Catalan Antoni Gaudí,
one of the most eminent architects, designed buildings such as
the Casa Milà (known as La Pedrera, the Catalan for stone
quarry), the Casa Batlló and the Sagrada Família
church, which have become world-famous landmarks.
Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is one of Europes
trendiest cities. Much of the activity revolves around Las Ramblas,
a series of narrow streets and alleys packed with restaurants,
nightclubs and a vibrant pedestrian market.
enjoy touring the city with a bus and guide plus we'll be offering
some great optional day trips including Montserrat,
just an hour's drive northwest of Barcelona. Montserrat is both
a magnificent and breathtaking mountain range and a place of recollection.
A major symbol of Catalan culture. Several types of visits can
therefore lead you there. The Montserrat
Monastery, its Abbey, the Moreneta - the black Madonna
- and the Escalonia. There's also a cable car that can take us
to the highest peak of the mountain range and also the possibility
of wine tasting at a local winery.
optional tour from Barcelona is a day trip to Girona
and Costa Brava. Girona is an easy and worthy
day trip from Barcelona. A delightful city badly damaged by French
troops in 1809 but which nowadays boasts many interesting sights
including the Passeig Arqueologic (Archaeological Walk), a pleasant
walkway along the old ramparts of the city. See the Iglesia de
Sant Feliu, dating from the 14th century as well as the 15th century
cathedral, which has some Catalan Baroque style but is mainly
gothic. The Jewish quarter is very interesting to explore and
the city boats many fine restaurants, bars and shops. Much of
the city's charm comes from its narrow medieval streets-with frequent
stairways, as required by the steep terrain.
Next up is
Mallorca. We'll have 4-nights to explore and enjoy this beautiful
many years Mallorca has been a favorite nautical destination for
Europeans and Spanish people due to a variety of reasons. But
the main reason is that it is an extraordinarily beautiful place
in the Mediterranean, with crystal-clear waters and an ideal weather.
is the largest of the Balearic Islands and has many interesting
attractions for tourists. Our hotel is idyly located in
the harbor, just a few minutes walk from the Old Towne in Palma.
Attractions in and around Palma de Mallorca include the city's
dramatic seafront Cathedral (La Seu) - which was constructed in
the 13th century and took almost 400 years to complete; the
Parc de la Mar - a tiered park offering splendid views of the
waterfront; and the grand Almudaina Palace - a formal royal residence
dating back almost 700 years. There are many museums in Mallorca,
offering interesting information about the island and its history,
which dates back to ancient times and boasts traces of Roman and
Arab civilizations. Appeaing art galleries are also present on
Mallorca, exhibiting various works of art, such as the Museu d'Art
Espanyol Contemporani, which has paintings by Pablo Picasso, Joan
Miro and Salvador Dali.
hotel here is situated on the harbor a short walk into the main
old town area and we have paid an extra fee to guarantee everyone
sea view rooms!
in Mallorca we will fly off to Seville. Our
hotel is perfectly situated within easy walking distance to all
the attractions including the wonderful palace of Alcazar and
the Catedral de Seville and Giralda Tower, the largest Gothic
building in the world and the third-largest church in Europe.
It is truly impressive.
to legend, Seville was founded by Hercules and its origins are
linked with the Tartessian civilisation. It was called Hispalis
under the Romans and Isbiliya with the Moors. The
high point in its history was following the discovery of America
in 1492. For all its important monuments and fascinating history,
Sevilla is universally famous for being a joyous town. While the
Sevillians are known for their wit and sparkle, the city itself
is striking for its vitality.
From Seville we plan to offer
a couple of wonderful day trips including Ronda or even a trip
across the Strait of Gibraltar to visit Tangier. Ronda was one
of our favorite towns on our last visit to Spain.Ronda
sits in the heart of the Serrania de Ronda, about 100kms from
the city of Malaga and with apopulation of approximately 35,000
by lush river valleys and sitting above a deep ravine, it is a
place that literally takes your breath away when seeing it. Anyone
who has been lucky enough to visit Ronda will understand its appeal.
It is one of the most beautiful and visited cities in Spain (the
third most visited city in Andalucia).
Another day trip will
be to cross the Strait of Gibraltar and visitTangier, Morocco.
Tangier has for centuries been Europes's gateway to Africa. Its
blend of cultures and influences is unique in Morocco for
much of its history it wasn't evengoverned by Morocco. Tangier
is built on the slopes of a chalky limestone hill. The old town
(medina), enclosed by 15th-century ramparts, is dominated by a
casbah, the sultans palace (now a museum of Moroccan art),
and the Great Mosque. European quarters, whose populations have
declined considerably since integration with Morocco in 1956,
stretch to the south and west. Tangier has been the summer site
of the Moroccan royal
residence since 1962.
