The village with the lucky castle (Hisn Ashar)
The nearby authentic, traditional white-washed village of Iznájar with its 8th century castle (which gives the village its name) offers spectacular views over the lake where you can hire kayaks and pedalos and even has a beach, Valdearenas.
Crossroads of cultures
The city was one of Europe’s most influential capitals in the 11th century, complete with street lighting. A peaceful melting pot of Jews, Muslims and Christians resulting in jewels such as the Mezquita, the Moorish mosque and many other important historical buildings and museums.
Granada and its Alhambra
The Moorish wonder of the world
A bourgeois and rather aristocratic city, but at the same time modern, vibrant and student-like. Full of palaces, churches, monasteries and impressive museums. Discover its tasty and cozy tapas bars on hidden squares and dive into its flamenco culture. Wander through the old streets of the Albayzin, the authentic Moorish quarter and marvel at the Alhambra, an unmissable World Heritage Site. Book your tickets on time, at least 2 months in advance!
Gateway to the Costa del Sol and its beaches, but Málaga itself also has so much to offer. Founded by the Phoenicians and important during the Moorish period, the city has interesting remains from those periods. The fort at the harbor is well worth a visit. In addition, Málaga offers a fantastic city life with many small bars where you can drink Málaga wine from the barrel and where your bill is written on the bar in chalk. Also try fresh fish in a chiringuito on the beach.
You have to be there to believe it
An area that was once a seabed in the Jurassic period (100-200 million years ago). Now pushed up to a height of 1300 meters with eroded rock formations formed by erosion that form a spectacular landscape. You can make 2 walks there. Make sure you have good footwear.
