What to expect

A chance to see the ‘other Andalusia' in the highlands of the Sierra Nevada. You'll drive past rocky outcrops, olive groves, almond and cork trees and cultivated farmland with stops in Puerto La Ragua and Guadix, where you'll visit one of its famous cave homes.

At Puerto La Ragua, there'll be a stop and a short walk through the pine trees, in a peaceful nature reserve. Here, you'll be offered a small picnic of Spanish wine, crisps and olives. Then in the foothills, head past shark fin-shaped peaks to Guadix – it's the picture of a fantastical town that's jumped out of the pages of The Hobbit.

You'll notice chimneys sprouting from the hills and mysterious whitewashed doorways leading into the mountainsides – and get to see inside one of these unusual cave dweller's homes. You'll also get a feel for the traditional lives of the locals when you stop at an earthenware shop – see hand-painted ceramics and watch a pottery-making demonstration.

    Almeria City STEP Walking Tour

    Tucked into Andalucia's south-east corner, Almeria has stayed something of a secret to tourists. It's a Spanish city whose story remains relatively untold. Dive into this historic port's past with a walking tour that'll take you from the age of Muslim Emirs and Arab caliphates to modern day fame through Hollywood and TV. Get your bearings in the old quarter first. You'll find tree-lined boulevards and chic boutiques, all watched over by a huge Arab fortress that starred as the exotic capital of Dorne in HBO's smash-hit series, Game of Thrones.Wander between Medieval buildings in the ancient Moorish medina – the hub of life in the 10th-century – and hear how the city suffered in the Spanish Civil War with a stop at Almeria's underground air-raid shelters. You'll check out the bulky, fortress-like cathedral, and less-known sights like Doña Pakyta Museum of Art and Nicolás Salmerón Park, too. Last up is the British-designed Cable Ingles pier, a symbol of Spain's industrial heritage.
