Andalucia

Sun drenched Sevilla to Historic Antequera

New bike tour with Trek Travel in 2014.

If you've dreamt of Spain, you've dreamt of Andalucia.

This is essential Spain. It's limestone peaks, mountain passes and spectacular views. It's exquisite tapas, rich olive oils, classic Spanish wines and Jamon Ibérico. But most of all, Andalucia is the birthplace of Spanish romance, where flamenco and a vibrant history combine into a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Picasso called this place his home. You'll call it amazing.
