Excursions from the Costa del Sol
Visit, in total comfort, the city of Granada and the Alhambra: one of the most important, beautiful and historical places in Europe. The Alhambra Palace is the most visited monument in Spain, built in the middle of the 13th century and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984. In addition, you will be taken to the city center of Granada, where you will have free time to visit the Cathedral and enjoy the streets and corners of the vibrant city. At the end of the day, the same bus will take you back home.
Despite being a growing city, Ronda retains much of its historic charm, particularly its old town. It is famous around the world for its spectacular cliffs and views, and for the deep El Tajo gorge that leads to the Guadalevín River through its center. Visitors head straight to the 18th-century New Bridge, which straddles the 100-meter chasm below, before taking in views from the Alameda over the Serranía de Ronda mountains.
Seville is located on the banks of the Guadalquivir and has one of the largest historical centers in Europe. Some of the main attractions are the old minaret, La Giralda, the cathedral (one of the largest in Christendom) and the Alcázar , as well as the Casa de Pilatos, the Torre del Oro, the Town Hall and the Archivo de Indias. (where the historical records of the "discovery" of America are kept), the Museum of Fine Arts (the second largest collection of this type in Spain), as well as numerous convents, parish churches and palaces.
Córdoba was founded by the Romans and due to its strategic importance as the highest navigable point of the Guadalquivir River, it became a port city of great importance, used to send Spanish olive oil, wine and wheat to ancient Rome. The Romans built the mighty bridge across the river, now called "The Roman Bridge". But the hour of greatest splendor of Córdoba was when it became the capital of the Moorish kingdom of El-Andalus, and it was then that the works of the Great Mosque, or "Mosque", began, which after several centuries of extensions and extensions became one of the largest in all of Islam.
When the city was reconquered by the Christians in 1236, the new rulers of the city were so amazed by its beauty that they left it standing, building their cathedral amid its rows of arches and columns, and creating the extraordinary church-mosque. we see today.
The Caminito del Rey is a cliff path that hangs 100 m above the waters of the Guadalhorce river reservoir, as it passes through the famous spot; Garganta del Chorro, near the towns of El Chorro in Álora and Ardales, about 25 km inland from the city of Malaga.
The 'new' Caminito del Rey was rebuilt and reopened to the public in 2015. The layout and design of the new road was kept as close as possible to the old road from 1921. The famous sections of the promenade are built with cross planks of wooden slats and a simple 1.2 m high three-wire railing. In some places, the path is only a meter wide and hangs from the cliff. The 'old' road can be seen just below. A highlight is the steel suspension bridge with an open grid platform across the gorge, right next to the iconic original aqueduct bridge.
