OUR CITIES

Since 2017, to celebrate our 10 years of service anniversary, we set out to expand our concept from a one department company to a multi-department organization, by setting up ‘Local City Delegations’ at each of our closest and most visited cities in Andalusia. Our ‘City Plans & Optional Service Extras’ including city guided tours and activities, as well as city accommodation offers, are managed by our new local teams at the centre of each city itself. After a deep revision of our service over the past years, we have adapted our ‘Travel Plans’ to you should you choose to travel at your own pace. We are welcoming our new City Manager teams in Cordoba and Sevilla, as well as new staff members and collaborators from our hometown in Granada, Spain. Our offer is now ready and open for the independent traveller. We hope to be posting more of our activities throughout this process. 

As far as real-time hotel rates being competitive along with the large online enterprises, we have to use the old phrase: «if you can’t beat them join ‘em!», so we have partnered with the main online hotel booking competitor to any small yet authentic local agency like our own. You can now book online with Booking.com and we will be able to follow up and plan to pick you up at whichever hotels you book, revise, counteroffer or modify your bookings if need be, all this through our booking.com partner link.

This said we welcome you to our cities, in whichever way you decide this to happen!

EMINENT CITIES OF AL-ANDALUS & SPAIN TODAY

The model of cities with stable environments, where men of different sciences were commissioned to study and develop the different sciences, had already brought a cultural revolution in the East. Cities such as Damascus and Baghdad collected and further developed several elements taken from the Byzantine, Persian, Hindus and Chinese civilizations, integrating them within the Islamic holistic approach to knowledge. Further, the wise Hispaniola-Muslims, strongly influenced by this Eastern Revolution, also studied the ancient Greek philosophical work. New ways to sail at sea were opened by the development of the compass, new methods of irrigation for the fields where introduced and paper itself was manufactured towards books of science.

The Medina, city in Arabic, had defensive towers, with optical communication systems and offered its inhabitants protection in times of war. The main streets of the medina where born at the doors of the city walls and were turned into stoned roads. The rest of the city where a labyrinth of little alleyways. These cities, both small and large, created stable environments where scholars in the different sciences would gather to share and further develop their studies. Large cities had sewerage systems for dirty water, public fountains with drinkable water and numerous baths. There where also funduqs or guest houses for the caravans which brought diverse merchandises to the town, coming from the farmlands, other cities or diverse foreign countries.
