Granada

At the end of this relaxing sojourn, head to Granada, the stronghold of the Moorish Kingdom until 1492. Walk through the palatial complex of the Alhambra, with its intricate Islamic architectural details, blossom-filled courtyards, and burbling fountains.

Learn about local culture at a gypsy flamenco show, and spend your final day delving into the spiritual heritage of Toledo, learning how the world’s 3 great monotheistic religions coexisted peacefully in this beautifully preserved medieval city before returning to Madrid.
