"OMG the best birthday of my life was recently spent on a wonderful bike ride through Andalucia, Spain. I am in love with Spain and the beautiful hillsides of olive trees, white villages and beautiful architecture."

Andalusia Bike Tour

Andalusian history is the result of a complex mixture of cultures and people during more than 2000 years. It s impossible to forget the heritage left in the Andalusian territories by the Iberians, the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Arabs and the Christians.
Andalusian culture fascinates intellectuals and artists during all times, because of the mixture of western and oriental cultures.
Writers like the French A. Merimée, with Carmen, that became an opera with G. Bizet, or the US diplomatic W. Irving, who wrote the Tales of the Alhambra in the XIX Century. Even now, it is possible to notice those influences everywhere, architecture, gastronomy, arts, landscape, settlements… Our adventure starts alongside the Guadalquivir river, from Seville to Cordoba, enjoying the endless treasures, left by ancient cultures, always outstanding under the special light of the Andalusia sky. The sun will follow us through olive and orange fields, all the way to Granada, where all the art and history of Andalusia will be finally unveiled to us.
