Spain… On the Road Again, Part 8 – A Sultan’s View of Andalucia Reply

On Road AgainIn this chapter our pilgrims swing south into Andalucía, the part of Spain where the Muslim conquerors reigned for almost 800 years (711 till 1492). Gwyneth and Mark get a taste for Spain’s Moorish history at the majestic Alhambra, the legendary hilltop palace and fortress in Granada. Claudia joins the group for a scenic drive along the Andalucían coast and, with Mark chiming in from the back seat, the group stops in the town of Almuñecar in the province of Granada for local tropical fruit and a meal, after which Gwyneth proclaims, “This is the best day in terms of food.” She then embarks for England and Mark and Claudia push on to beautiful and historic Cordoba, where he teaches her a thing or two about Moorish architecture.
