Magnificent Mudéjar Art From Morocco's Imperial Cities to the Andalusian Flatlands (port-to-port package)

Although the Strait of Gibraltar separates Spain and Morocco, they share a rich, common history. Our trip will focus on Mudéjar art, a mix of styles that appeared between the Moorish invasions and the Spanish Reconquista. Join us on a fascinating cruise under the golden sunshine in Andalusia to the lively atmosphere of the traditional Moroccan bazaars known as souks.
