Excursion to the city of Granada; The provincial capital city of Granada with its Alhambra, divided by the river Darro which runs underground in the city centre, has been declared a national monument. The city was founded by the Visigotes in the third century BC whose domination ended in 711. It was the only surviving bastion of Islam in Spain until the last sultan of Granada had to relinquish the city to Ferdinand and Isabella at the treaty of Santa Fé in 1492.
In the same way that the Alhambra palace was built during the Nasrid dynasty, a lively cultural environment was able to develop in the densely populated and wealthy city. Likewise the new Spanish powers were able to enrich Granada with splendid renaissance and baroque buildings. (Our web site offers you an electronic form to order entrance tickets to the Alhambra).
Excursion to the city of Almería; The capital of the province of Almería, is a former Roman port, dominated by its Moorish castle, the Alcazaba. Attractions here include the 16th-century Cathedral and the Church of Santiago el Viejo. The main resorts of Roquetas de Mar, Aguadulce, the natural park of El Cabo de Gata and the town Mojácar lie east and west of the town.
