Three dazzling cities, with remarkable stories to tell. Granada, nestled at the foothills of the snowcapped Sierra Nevada, drenched in the sweet melancholy of the lost world of al-Andalus and glorying in the drama of the Alhambra. Showy Seville, home of roses and passion, Carmen, bulls and flamenco, where you can pick oranges from the trees and eat tapas in the city that invented them. Cordoba, with its Mezquita, ancient Jewish quarter and twisting maze of white alleys, a haven of quietness and dignified calm.
