Portugal is one of the most inexpensive and fascinating destinations in Europe. It has a rich seafaring past, superb beach resorts, wistful towns and cities, and a landscape wreathed in olive groves, vineyards and wheat fields. Four decades of dictatorshi

Andalusia - region situated between two continents and bathed by two oceans. The name dates from the short period of the presence of the Vandals (409-429 BC). Before these settle Phoenicians (900 BC), Greeks (600 BC) and Romans (3rd century B.C.- 4th century A.C.) there, later on reigned the Visigoths for almost two centuries (5th.-7th.) and finally conquered the Arabs (711 - 1492) the whole region, leaving the most impressive testimonies in Andalusia. With the Spanish-Christian reconquest, Andalusia became the launching point for the discovery and conquest of the "New Eorld". This marks the beginning of the golden age.

Visit the Alhambra, the "red or crimson castle", or fortress "by the light of torches". Created initially for military purposes, the Alhambra complex of Moorish monarchs in Granda was an alcazaba (fortress), an alcázar (palace), and a small medina (city), all in one. Our guide points out the richness of its architecture. Built around a theme of paradise on earth, the Alhambra is an eye-opening experience, and a unique opportunity to compare both Muslim and Western architectural styles as the Nasrid Palace is next to the Renaissance palace of Charles V.

Cordoba's hour of greatest glory was when it became the capital of the Moorish kingdom of El-Andalus, and this was when work began on the Great Mosque, becoming one of the largest in all of Islam. When the Christians reconquered the city in 1236, the city's new rulers were so awed by its beauty that they left it standing, building their cathedral in the midst of its rows of arches and columns, creating the extraordinary church-mosque we see today.

Flamenco Dance & Dinner
Flamenco was born, in southern Spain, between Seville, Cadíz and Granada. Through extraordinary, passionated dance to Spanish guitar music, gypsies expressed the sadness of their downtrodden lives. Good food, attentive service, as show that ranges from sultry to dramatic to sensual to heartbreaking dancing. A perfect combination, right!?

Seville certainly is one of the most beloved places by visitors to Spain. Although today Moorish influence is architectonically most evident - Andalusia was occupied by Moors for about 800 years - it has been a cultural center long before. The fertility of this land and its favorised climate with mild winters and about 3000 hours of sun per year made Phoenicians and Carthaginians settle here. Later came Romans, like almost to any place in Europe, and two of their emperors, Trajan and Hadrian, in fact were born here. Also lateron Seville was the home of famous and infamous figures of history, the legendary "Don Juan" started from here to conquer the hearts of women across all Europe, while Columbus started from a port close to Seville to discover a new world. Prosper Merimée's "Carmen", who couldn't make her decision between the officer Don José and the bullfighter Escamillo - the consequences you can watch still today in opera houses - was a worker in Seville's old tobacco factory. By the way, this factory serves today as University, a fact that might give you a glimpse on Andalusian talent for improvisation. Some highlights are the Real Alcázar, THe minaret of La Giralda, Puente de Isabel II and much more..

Abundant beach front cafés (called Chiringuitos) selling fried fish, snacks and refreshments, which is just as well as the walk back from the main beach into the town centre is uphill all the way. There are bars in abundance proclaiming their heritage to one nationality of another; Irish, English, Dutch, German you name it Torremolinos is likely to have it. The busy nightclubs pump out the latest music and stay open until dawn or even later. Make no mistakes Torremolinos is about having fun.
