The perfect base for you to explore the flavours of Andalusia is the lively city and architectonic jewel of Seville. According to legend, Seville was founded by Hercules and its origins are linked with the Tartessian civilisation. It was called Hispalis under the Romans and Isbiliya with the Moors.

In Sevilla we will visit the minaret of La Giralda, the cathedral (one of the largest in Christendom) and the Mudejar Alcazar Palace with marvellous gardens. We will also enjoy a walking tapas tour through the Santa Cruz old quarter with cramped streets, flowered balconies, richly decorated facades, hidden patios.

On one day we will make an excursion to the land where the oldest Spanish wine “Sherry” can only be made. In the year 1100 AD, a small Phoenician galley crossed the Mediterranean in search of new civilizations. After passing the limits of the known world, they became shipwrecked not far from Jerez. The Phoenician merchants were captivated by the prosperity of this wonderful land and decided to establish a colony and planted vines, vines from which the famous classic Sherry wines are produced today. Ever since Sir Francis Drake ransacked the port of Cadiz in 1587 and made off with 3,000 barrels of Jerez wine, many European countries have been addicted to it..

Our gourmet tour will lead us go to Sanlucar, a lovely fishing village famed for being the port which Columbus set sail from and famous for its succulent pricey prawns and Manzanilla, queen of dry Sherries with a unique sea-breeze tang.

We will also head to Cordoba, founded by the Romans and later capital of the Moorish kingdom, a very lively town in the best Andalusia tradition, a town of Flamenco and bullfighting, an exceptional Muslim and Roman legacy and certainly one of the most attractive destinations for delighting with Andalusian cuisine. We will travel through its countryside, land of olive groves, vineyards, and small orchards visiting an old cellar and a traditional olive mill.

You will enjoy fantastic hands-on cooking classes in Seville with one of Andalusia’s most acclaimed chefs, trained in Paris and who applies a contemporary French flair to indigenous Andalusian ingredients. The result is a distinctively delicate and delectable take on traditional regional cuisine.

And you will also savour fabulous gourmet meals during the tour while staying in a small, charming hotel situated in the historic centre of Seville, that will permit you to explore and feel the cheerful atmosphere of this lovely city that will daze your senses.
