Grand Cycling Tour of Andalucia in 13 days

ExperiencePlus! offers three itinerary options for your exploration of Andalucia. You can select from: a 7-day itinerary from Seville to Cordoba, an 8-day version from Cordoba to Granada, or the Grand Tour that combines them both and has you cycling 13 days from Seville to Granada! Much of Andalucia’s colorful culture and stunning architecture springs from its history. For centuries this region in the south of Spain was the frontier between different faiths and cultures. This crossroads has left a treasure trove of vibrant monuments and historic footprints throughout the area including mosques transformed into churches; vast palace complexes; cuisine infused with dashes of North African spices; and a string of the iconic white towns stretching from Granada’s Albayzín to the riverside town of Cordoba.
