Ever fantasize about escaping to the beautiful Spanish countryside for a romantic getaway? So have most people. But unlike most people, you now have a chance to win your very own 4-Day Spain Tour: Cordoba, Seville, and Granada from Madrid from Viator.
Viator is giving away 1 pair of tickets for 2 lucky people to discover Andalucia’s most popular cities: Seville, Cordoba, and Granada! This trip includes stays in 4-star accommodations and is valued at US$788 – an incredible prize package!
Head out of Madrid and over to Andalucia, an autonomous community located on the southernmost tip of Spain. When you think of Spanish culture, chances are you’re thinking of Andalucian culture. Most of the quintessential elements of Spanish culture, including flamenco dancing, bullfighting, and Spanish architecture, originated within this coastal region.
If you win, you can look forward to four days exploring the cities of Seville, Cordoba, and Granada. Your journey will begin as your depart from Madrid and travel south to Cordoba. Stroll along the city’s intricately winding network of streets, alleys, squares, and whitewashed courtyards, as you get a glimpse of what it might have looked like during the medieval period.
Next, it’s on to Seville to take a tour of the beautiful city’s many highlights, including the cathedral, gardens and Santa Cruz quarter. Seville was built on the banks of the Guadalquivir River over 2,000 years ago, and exchanged hands between many different groups of people throughout its history, giving it a diverse and vibrant cultural identity. The city was most heavily influenced by Arabic culture, and you’ll get to see this aspect of the city’s heritage in the Moorish landmarks and architecture.
Continue on to Granada, a beautiful city situated at the foot of the mighty Sierra Nevada Mountains. While there, enjoy the Moorish and Spanish Gothic style architectural sites, including the Alhambra, a 14th century palace and fortress complex constructed by Moorish leaders.
Your journey ends with a visit to the World Heritage city of Toledo before returning to Madrid.
