Things to do

Écija

Écija is famous for its eleven baroque church and bell towers, all of them richly adorned with blue ceramic tiles. Its archaeological Museum is worth a visit too. Housed in a lovely 18th century palacio, it contains some of the finest Roman mosaics found in Spain, dating from the 1st and 2nd century AD. It also holds the superb “Wounded Amazon”. Écijas charm lies too in its narrow whitewashed streets, letting visitors discover its wonders as they meander: baroque facades of palaces, covered with faded frescoes, delicately sculpted brick gates, ornate patios with fountains, vast churches with treasures of gold and silver.

Seville

Seville is often called Spain’s most beautiful city and has a very special vibe. You can see the city as a big open air museum, because the city itself is already a major attraction. Highly recommended to visit!

In the middle of Córdoba’s historical centre, near the Mezquita, you will find this beautiful Hamman. There are various arrangements with massages and of course the use of the Arab baths. Highly recommended!

El Caminito del Rey

El Caminito del Rey is known as one of Europe’s most dangerous hiking routes. After five deadly accidents, the road was officially closed in 2001.

You can now enjoy without danger, the beautiful view this path has to offer through the El Chorro gulch.
