M√°laga

Enjoy Seville, the capital of Andalusia, and its beautiful architecture influenced by the Romans, Arabs, and Jews throughout history. Join us and you will experience this warm and welcoming city. You can visit the Royal Alcazar, which is a Moorish fortress, in Seville, is one of the most ancient monuments which depicts the ancient history of medieval Spain and houses a charismatic portray of the mixture of Christian and Muslim cultural amalgamation. Breathing in the fresh air and walking among the maze of orange trees is the perfect way to digest the magic of the Alcazar. The palace has greatly transformed since its inception as a Roman fort. A long history of alterations, expansions, and renovations have created a defining mixture of styles. This incredible fortress was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1987 around the same time as the Seville Cathedral. You can also visit the breathtaking royal gardens in the cathedral which are divided into separate sections, all of which appeal with a unique style. The Jewish Quarter is another important place which describes a dark history of deceit and destruction which has its presence on the walls of the Jewish Quarter in Cordoba. At the centre of the quarter is the Synagogue un Calle de Los Judios, one of only three originals remaining in Spain. You can also find a statue of a Jewish philosopher called Maimonides, also an astronomer born in Cordoba. Apart from other recognizable beautiful monuments of Spain, Torre del Oro of Seville is one of the widely visited historical monuments and is also known as the Golden Tower. The tower is believed to have a lime and straw mortar, giving it this golden reflection. The Church of Santo Tome houses the masterpiece artwork by a Renaissance El Greco known as The Burial of the Count of Orgaz and it depicts the popular local legend of his time. The painting is divided into two sections, heaven above and the mortals and earth below.
