Day 3

El Carligto - Malaga - El Carligto

MALAGA

Today you will visit the coastal and famous city of Malaga. Your private driver will pick you and drive you to the meeting point to meet your local guide, a real native expert. This is fascinating day excursion that combines history, culture and flavors in one of the Mediterranean most dazzling cities. Go up to the viewpoint of Gibralfaro and you will see a little of the fishermen's quarter of the city. On your way down stop at the Alcazaba (old fortress) and then finally reach downtown. Stroll around the lively streets, admire the Cathedral, the exterior of Picasso's Birthplace, the Plaza de la Merced, the Roman Theatre, and the well-known Calle Larios. Interested in visiting Picasso’s museum? Your tour guide will unveil details you didn’t know.

It is finally vermouth time, stopping for some local wines in a singular old tavern is probably the greatest way to wet you appetite. Time for lunch, tapas style of course, at one of our favorite restaurants in Malaga.

After lunch, you can spend some time on your own, and then meet your driver to return to El Carligto, a great space to unwind before a delectable healthy dinner.

Day 4

El Carligto - Cordoba - El Carligto

CORDOBA

After an early restorative breakfast, get ready for your private transfer to Córdoba. Discover the essence of Córdoba in a guided tour through beautiful houses with blossoming patios in the historic city centre.

Cordoba unveils a Islamic architecture master piece; the Mezquita. Then, stroll around its Jewish quarter and the synagogue. Cordoba is probably Andalucia's most beguiling and authentic city. Tiny plazas, baroque churches, perfumed gardens and patios brimming with flowers, shady whitewashed alleyways and graceful orange trees all add to its charms. It’s not by chance Cordoba downtown is listed UNESCO Heritage City.

At lunchtime, our suggestion is experiencing the Arab heritage cuisine in the two Michelin starred restaurant Noor from chef Paco Morales, where you are transported to the ancient Arab times (if restaurant is in its open season).

After lunch, transfer back to El Carligto, where the evening will be enjoyed with a light dinner (al-fresco dinner if weather allows).

ROASTED BABY GOAT

But there is a local specialty you cannot miss: the chivo, roast kid or baby goat cooked in a wood-fired oven and served whole. The flavor and texture are spectacular, so tonight we’ll bring it to you. Make your taste buds dance.

Two competing hills, separated by the Darro River, with a common past: the glorious heritage of Al-Andalus in Granada. Learn the secrets and symbols contained in the Alhambra’s lush gardens and magical palaces worthy of the Arabian Nights, and continue on to the Albayzin, for a step back in time in the oldest quarter of Granada.

Placid lunch at one of the nicest restaurants with views over the Alhambra. After lunch, transfer back to El Carligto, an effervescent and healthy light dinner will be served.
