Caminos de Pasión Tour AC3

Charming towns at the heart of Andalucia

Based on 7 nights self-drive independent tour in Spain

A trip through the Andalucian heartlands staying in charming, small towns united in their devotion to the Passion of Christ which culminates in the intense fervour of Easter week but forms the bedrock of society year-round.

Rich in oil, wine and minerals the region has been highly prized by Tartessians, Romans and Moors, each passing civilisation leaving its mark and amounting to an immensely rich cultural heritage. The cities of Moorish Andalucia, Granada, Cordoba and Sevilla, are within easy reach and there are sierras, wetlands and olive groves where you can get away from it all…

What our clients say

We have just spent 2 glorious weeks touring Andalucía. We had a mix of seaside, mountains, architecture, culture and amazing scenery and sights.….. sorts of places we probably would not have found or chosen on our own.
