Seville sits in the valley of the Guadalquivir river and was a significant harbour during the Spanish acquisition of large parts of the American continent. The city of Seville is famous worldwide for its civilisation, buildings, customs and artistic tradition. This is the origin of Flamenco and the city where the most incredible Easter pageants take place. Seville’s rich history has left the city crammed with untold monuments like the overwhelming cathedral , the third largest in the world, the Giralda tower, the magnificent palace of the Reales Alcázares, the delightful Barrio of Santa Cruz with its narrow streets, the Maestranza bullfighting ring and the obsession for Flamenco and the scent of orange blossoms on every corner.

The city of Cordoba has a extraordinary past, and was a vital tactical city for both the Muslims and Christians, and was also home to a large Jewish population. Throughout the city the edifices and memorials radiate the rich civilising tapestry that makes up the cities history. The city beginnings date back to the Roman occupation; with its setting at the highest point of the Guadalquivir River, it became an important maritime city of significant strategic value. The Romans constructed the bridge that traverses the river, which is now known as El Puente Romano (The Roman Bridge). Cordoba is a sparkling Andalusian metropolis, with a thirst for flamenco and bullfighting. It’s a breath-taking city to discover, with the old narrow, cobbled streets of the Jewish District, which date back to medieval times; the attractive parks and plazas, incorporating the enchanting Alcazar Gardens and La Plaza de Potro, and not forgetting Cordoba’s wealth of historical monuments, and architectural splendour.
