Day 2: Cordoba

After breakfast, join an optional guided tour of Cordoba and its magnificent Mosque-Cathedral and decorated patios. Afterwards, return to Seville.

Day 3: Seville - Cadiz

After breakfast, join an optional guided tour of Seville on foot. The afternoon will be spent sailing past the Doñana National Park, designated as a World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. Reach Cádiz in the evening and set out on a tour of Cádiz by night in the company of our hostess.

Day 4: Cadiz - Puerta de Santa Maria

Today set out on an excursion to Jerez and visit a “ganadería” (a property where bulls are raised), the chance to learn about this living symbol of Spanish culture.
