Highlights of Southern Spain and Morocco

Duration
15 Days
Prices From:
US$ 4,485

Combine the colourful sights of Andalusia with the thrilling sensory blend that is Morocco on this small group tour. Begin in Seville, the spiritual home of flamenco, before going on to see the picturesque towns of Moorish Spain, the awesome Alhambra, and of course, exciting Morocco.


This 15-day small group trip takes you from Seville to Marrakech, for an all over journey through Moorish history and culture across two continents.

Begin your journey in Seville, the cultural heart of Andalusia. A guided walking tour will help make sure you see the highlights, including Barrio Santa Cruz, El Centro, and the Catedral de Sevilla. You’ll have the afternoon free to explore on your own. One of the city’s most popular and impressive attractions is its Alcazar Palace, but the city is just as rewarding to explore at leisure. Perhaps opt for a flamenco show after dark.

Between its big cities, Southern Spain is dotted with enchanting villages, including its famous White Towns. Start at Zahara de la Sierra, known as the ‘Moorish Eagle’s Nest’ for its magnificent views. Visit a traditional olive oil mill and try gazpacho in its original home. Your next two nights will be spent in another mountaintop village, Grazalema. This is an ideal spot for hiking and exploring nature in the region. A guided tour also puts the region’s Roman and Moorish past into perspective for you. Finally, spend a night in Ronda, one of Spain’s oldest villages, located high on a plateau. Rich with atmosphere, Ronda is a delightful city to explore on your own, though your guide will also provide hints on what to see or do.

Arrive in Granada, home of the famous Alhambra. Before you tour the grand Moorish palace, wander the city’s streets to see how Christian and Moorish influences have blended over the years to create a unique urban landscape. Tour Granada Cathedral, and take a tasting tour to sample the local produce. Good tapas is taken seriously in Granada, so take full advantage! The following day, bask in the beauty and history of the Alhambra, exploring its exquisitely maintained grounds before your guide takes you through Granada’s Moorish quarter. You’ll enjoy an additional day at leisure here before flying to Casablanca.

Besides being Morocco’s most romantic name, Casablanca is home to the immense Mosque of Hassan II. Second in size only to Mecca’s great mosque, this one is open to non-Muslims. Travel along the coast to Rabat, Morocco’s capital and first imperial city. Explore Arab history dating back to the 10th to 15th centuries, and see the earliest settlements in the area. Continue on to Meknes, another former capital in the afternoon. Like Rabat, this was an imperial city built to impress, and it still awes visitors today. Visit Heri Souani, see the Bou Inania Medresse religious school, and simply enjoy the atmosphere of the narrow streets and hidden souks. Your next stop is Volubilis, formerly a distant outpost of the Roman Empire, filled with photogenic Mosaics and the Decumanus Maximus.

Stay in Fes overnight, Morocco’s spiritual and cultural centre. While you’ll stay in the refined New City with its European influences, you’ll also explore the old city, including the famed Fes Medina. This is Moroccan chaos at its most intoxicating, as you weave your way between stalls filled with colourful fruits, herbs, fresh soups, live animals, aromatic spices, dye-pits, and the ever-present sound of copper being hammered. This is a day of exploring you won’t forget, right up until you hear the call to prayer from the roof of your hotel. The following day, enjoy Morocco’s beautiful landscape as you make your way to Bine el Oudaine – a welcome slice of serenity after the excitement of the Fes Medina!

Travel through the desert to Marrakech, where you’ll stay in a traditional riad, or Moroccan mansion. Spend your first evening exploring Jemaa el Fna, which comes alive with local activity including entertainment and delicious Moroccan street food. Take a morning tour of the old medina, before exploring Bahia Palace and the Marrakech Museum – another former palace. Visit the Kouloubia Mosque, and return to Jemaa el Fna to experience its energy by day. There’s lots to explore with a free afternoon in Marrakech! Perhaps visit the gardens of French painter Jacques Majorelle, watch local artists at work, or refresh from it all with traditional Moroccan mint tea.

Arrive Seville

Welcome to Seville! Upon arrival, you will be met by your local representative and transferred to your hotel. There are no activities planned for during the day, so you may arrive at any time before your welcome meeting this evening. At this meeting, your leader will give you a briefing on what lies ahead for the trip. This is followed by a short orientation walk around the neighborhood and then included dinner where we get to sample some of the local tapas. If you have time beforehand, take the opportunity to explore this most flamboyant of cities. Barrio Santa Cruz, with its multicultural history, is a great place to start.

On this leader-led tour of Zahara you will walk up to a 15th-century watchtower and feast your eyes on the spectacular views over the Zahara-Gastor Reservoir and the surrounding countryside. Also today you will visit 'Molino El Vinculo', a traditional, family-run 'cold' olive oil mill, and enjoy a tour of the factory and tasting. Andalucia is the world's largest producer of olive oil, and the locals enjoy it at all times of the day. It is also the basis of Andalucia's most famous contribution to world gastronomy - gazpacho. From here it's a short drive (approximately 30 minutes) over the stunning 'Puerto de las Palomas' (Dove Pass), high up in the sierras, to the village of Grazalema.

Meknes to Volubilis to Fes

This morning you will discover the charming streets of Meknes' medina - the old walled section of the city. Enter via the northern gate, Bab Berdaine, and walk to the shrine of Moulay Ismail who, in the 17th century, turned Meknes from a provincial town to a spectacular Imperial city. Visit Heri Souani, Moulay Ismail's immense granaries and stables, then move on to exploring the elaborately decorated public buildings hidden in these winding streets, including the lovely Bou Inania Medresse (religious school). Take some time to soak up the bustling atmosphere of the old souk before driving out of the city to the ruins of Volubilis (approximately 45 minutes). Volubilis was once a provincial Roman capital, a distant outpost of the empire, and the remains make an undeniably impressive sight. Volubilis is the foremost Roman site in Morocco and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1997. Upon arrival you will take a tour around the ruins with a local guide. Please remember to pack drinking water, hat, sunglasses and sun cream for this tour as it may get hot and you will be exposed to the sun. And, of course, don't forget to take your camera as the town is filled with fantastic mosaics along the Decumanus Maximus, many of which remain intact. After time spent imagining Volubulis as the bustling city it once was, continue on to the living museum of Fes for the night (approximately 1.5 hours). Check in to your hotel in late afternoon, and perhaps spend the evening relaxing in this calming oasis, away from the buzz of streets of Fes.

Fes

Fes is the spiritual and cultural heart of Morocco; vibrant, noisy, fascinating and overwhelming - a visual and pungent feast for the senses. It is made up of three distinct 'cities', or quarters, and you will stay in the elegant 'Nouveau Ville', or New City, which has a distinctly French/European character. Today head into the huge, well-preserved medieval old city, known locally as Fes el Bali, and the mother of all Medinas. Medieval Fes was one of the world's great centers of education and culture, both Islamic and Jewish. Its religious institutions and libraries are legendary, its mosques of great renown. Walk through the twisting streets and alleyways, passing donkeys piled high with goods, and explore the specialty sections that divide the souk. Filled with historic khans, medresses and dye-pits, stalls loaded with fruits, herbs and soups, and where the squawk of chickens, smell of spice and sound of hammering of copper fills the air, it's not hard to imagine yourself back in the Middle Ages. Spend the day exploring the old city, visiting, Medresse el Attarine, the tanneries and the splendid Funduk Nejjarine, a beautifully restored 18th century inn. Return to your hotel in the late afternoon and listen to the amazing 'call for prayer' from the roof of your hotel. Your leader will be on hand to talk you through some of the most interesting customs and traditions of Moroccan people. Later in the evening, seek out a memorable dinner of one of the city's signature dishes, the salty and sweet pastille.

Bine el Ouidane

Bine el Ouidane is your destination today. You will drive approximately 7 hours in a comfortable private van, with frequent stops along the way. You will witness the beautiful and ever changing Moroccan landscape as well as slow, rural life. On many occasions you will have a chance to buy fresh local fruits and vegetables, which are mostly grown in nearby villages. Small village shops often sell original handicrafts too, if you'd like to stock up on souvenirs. Today you will also experience an art of tea making. Join a local family for a cup of truly delicious mint tea and share a home cooked lunch with them too. Bine el Ouidane is a small settlement beautifully placed on the bank of the lake, surrounded by sheer rocks. Take a moment to sit back and enjoy the calmness and peacefulness of the place. Perhaps take a short walk for a closer look at the majestic Bin el Ouidane dam, an arch shaped wall that not only provides hydroelectric power to the surrounding settlements, but most importantly irrigates fields in Beni Moussa and the Tadla plains. Without the irrigation system, it would be nearly impossible for local farmers to grow their crops. Evening at this beautifully located home-stay is free so remember, there is nothing wrong in sitting back on the poolside terrace and admiring surrounding view.

Explore tranquil courtyards filled with the scent of orange blossom, and the many salons and chambers that make up Bahia Palace. This splendid mansion was built in 1866 for a former slave who rose to power within the government. Continue to the Marrakech Museum, itself a former palace, which houses a fine collection of Moroccan art and sculpture. Stop by the Koutoubia Mosque; its famous minaret is the prototype for others of its kind around the world, including La Giralda in Seville. Then walk back through the streets of the old medina to the Jemaa el Fna. The rest of the day is free to explore further or shop in the bazaar. Perhaps visit the tropical gardens of the French painter Jacques Majorelle or check out the ruins of the Palais Badi, once one of the most beautiful palaces in the world. Otherwise, perhaps head back into the medina, where every step brings a new smell, a new sight or a new gift to buy. Watch skilled artisans perfect their craft, practice your haggling skills or take a break from the hustle to sip on tea or share a tajine, filled with the pure scent of Morocco. For your final evening, join again with the group, and go behind the scenes of the markets in Marrakech with a local guide who will provide an insight into Moroccan specialties at hidden stalls in the medina.
