We understand the importance of privacy for our customers and for them to have felt the finest experience possible whilst exploring the Islamic history and culture throughout Spain. Although our tours are full of exhilarating and eye opening visits as we explore the rise and fall of Islam throughout Spain and therefore throughout the rest of the world, we understand it can be quite a substantial journey which can become tiring for the traveler.

Day 1: Upon your arrival at Malaga airport we will transfer you straight to the Villa (approximately 1.5 hours’ drive), which is located in Granada, home to the illustrious monument known as The Alhambra, located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and in the autonomous community of Andalucía. Granada is also the last Muslim Kingdom which held out for 250 years before the inevitable fall in 1492. From here you will have the ability to unpack and rest before we take an evening stroll through the city of Granada for a brief tour of the great city before returning back to the Villa.
Day 2: After breakfast we will leave for Cordoba (approximately 2 hours’ drive). Upon arrival of Cordoba, we will first visit the archaeological site of Madinat al Zahra. The city built by the Caliph Abdul Rahman III. Here we see the Palace ruins and take a visit to the new exhibitions and museum (approximately 2 hours). We will take a guided tour of Cordoba Mosque, one of the most important and largest Mosques in its time. After taking lunch we take a walk through the old Jewish quarter and then across the old Roman Bridge for a visit to a fantastic interactive Museum on Islamic Spain (approximately 4-5 hours, including your own free time to explore the city). We shall then take a trip directly back to the secluded Villa.
Day 3: After breakfast we will make our way to the Alhambra, usually the highlight of the tour for many. Nominated a wonder of the world the visit to the Palaces, gardens and fort will leave you breathless (approximately 3-4 hours). After this you will have free time for the rest of the day to do some shopping and explore the Albaycin.
Day 4: On the final day before arriving back at Malaga airport we will still have a chance for further exploration. We will stop at the old Muslim bridge and the Muslim fort/castle which is the location of one of the last stands made by the Muslims of Alpujjara. We will then have lunch at a Muslim restaurant run by Spanish Muslim revert as well as have some further light exploration of the great city before departing for Malaga Airport (Time permitting).(approximately 1.5 hours’ drive).
The Andalucian Routes Casa De Rihlaa Experience comes to an end with final farewells.
