What you'll do
From sprawling palaces to towering cathedrals, Andalucía’s most stunning architecture remains brilliantly haunted by the region’s many imperial lives. Venture through the Gothic Catedral de Sevilla, for example, and you’ll find dazzling relics of the great Moorish mosque that once stood in its place. On this trip, we’ll explore the south of Spain through the waves of empires and kingdoms that once ruled it, tracing the rise and fall of Al-Andalus in its spectacular architecture and its penchant for elaborate performance. We’ll wander through palace halls, descend into underground corridors, and glimpse hidden gardens—all to unearth the complex, royal past of the forgotten kingdoms of Sevilla, Cordoba, and Granada. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to Sevilla and from Granada are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 14 travelers.
