Day 8 Seville, Spain

At the crossroads of Europe and Africa, Andalucia boasts an impressive artistic, historic and architectural heritage and is home to prestigious illustrations of the Arab presence in Spain. Do not miss a visit to Seville, the sublime and sulphurous capital of Andalucia, lying along the banks of the Guadalquivir. Over the centuries, Romans, Arabs, Spaniards and Andalucians have loved and created “the most beautiful of all cities...” The result is a magical collection of architectural jewels, a tissue of streets and alleys where each beam of sunlight, each honey-coloured stone, each balcony decorated with copper globes, contributes towards the beautiful whole.

Day 9 Cadiz, Spain

Head to Cadiz (Spain), without doubt the oldest city in Western Europe which boasts an outstanding historic heritage.

Day 10 Malaga, Spain

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
