Southern Spain is home to the region of Andalucia and throughout you will find Roman and Moorish influences and its towns and cities bear the evidence of these civilisations, which have dominated Spain's colourful history. A CITO tour by air.

Visit the 1,000 year old mosque; the Mezquita of Cordoba, the second largest in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site. A unique and architecturally stunning building with an imposing cathedral built inside.
City tour of Granada, where highlights include the great Renaissance cathedral housing the tombs of the great Catholic monarchs Isabel & Fernando and the Alcaiceria a maze of narrow, windy streets with many shops selling local artisan products.
