Travelling on the Al-Andalus train

Andalusian itinerary

Charm, local colour, high spirits, culture and art are just a few of the terms used to describe the cities along this seven-day route in two directions (Seville to Malaga and vice versa). Passengers can also explore these places on specially arranged guided tours.One example of a typical stage, on the route from Seville to Malaga, the train departs Seville (known for its Giralda, Cathedral or Alcázar) towards Jerez (make sure not to miss its wine and its traditional horse shows).The third, fourth and fifth days include stops in Ronda (boasting its spectacular views), Córdoba (with its Mosque-Cathedral and its impressive old town), Úbeda and Baeza (World Heritage Cities) and as well as Granada (with its impressive Alhambra and the opportunity to witness flamenco dancing first hand). After a sixth day spent entirely getting to know Granada, the seventh day ends in Malaga, capital of the famous Costa del Sol boasting an outstanding old quarter and lively port. The plan when departing Malaga for Seville is very similar but in reverse.
