Andalucia Through the Ages (History, Archaeology, Culture)

 
We call this trip our ´time machine´, because each city or site our travelers visit will take them back one era at a time to the very beginnings of civilization in Andalucía. Beginning in the modern day, the trip focuses on, in order, Medieval Christian times, the Late and the Early Moorish periods, the Roman era, the time of the Carthaginians, the Tartessians, and even pre-historic civilizations. You will get the chance to visit many beautifully preserved archaeological sites and structures, some still functioning, and enjoy guided tours and related interactive activities on each day. City stops include: Madrid, Toledo (Medieval era), Cordoba, Granada (Late Moorish to Early Moorish eras), Antequera, Sevilla (Roman era) Jerez, Cadiz (Phoenician, Cartheginean, and Tartessian eras), with an optional extension to Barcelona before you start your time warp if you would like it. But you won’t just experience the history and archaeological splendor of Andalucía – this trip is designed to give you both the historical and modern experience, so you’ll see for yourself how history has influenced the region’s current culture. We will offer you, along with the archaeological tours, a chance to experience the dance, music, and gastronomy of this beautiful region, and the chance to participate in all of it!
