The Destinations
For centuries, Spain has been home to some of the world's most colorful cities—urban playgrounds that pop with ornate tile work, flamenco flair, and matador melodrama, not to mention the simpler pleasures of sharing tapas, drinks, and laughter with friends.

Madrid is the embodiment of modern-day Spain—a sprawling and frenetic metropolis that casts old world edifices in the neon glow of the 21st century. For every sleepy cobblestone street and flea market (Madrileños have been haggling at the Rastro for 500 years), there is a wide commercial boulevard buzzing with activity, from the trendy shoppers in Gran Via to club hoppers in the Chueca and Huertas neighborhoods.

Spanish history is alive and well in Seville, where the regal architecture of palaces, theaters, and stadiums sets the stage for classic expressions of Spanish culture: brightly costumed flamenco dancers, heart-pounding bullfights, and lavish garden promenades lined with fountains and orange groves.

Finally, visitors can pay a tribute to Spain's Moorish past in Cordoba, a one-time cultural and intellectual hub and the former capital of the Iberian peninsula. The famed Mezquita mosque earned the city its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the remnants of opulent churches, palaces, libraries, and universities testify to a vibrant legacy.

For a Spanish experience colored by a rich history and contemporary energy, dive into this eight-day independent trip to Madrid, Seville, and Cordoba, courtesy of Intrepid Vacations.
