This program begins with the private visit of an Hacienda which is an important stud farm with beautiful pure Spanish pedigree horses. The adventure continues with the visit of two private domains, one of them being a famous chasse where go to hunt important people from the European aristocracy and also from the Emirates. Finally we will arrive at a hunters house in the top of the hill with dramatic landscapes and we will watch a show of falconry, one of the most fascinating old Moorish traditions. Great BBQ at the hunters house, privately prepared in the south American way (“asado argentino”).

The Magic of Moorish Spain
During thousands of years, different civilizations and religions considered the Iberian Peninsula as a land into which pilgrims had to go in order to rediscover the true meaning of life and rejuvenate spiritually. Today, in a globalized world, these concepts may seem from other times, but for who truly knows the Iberian Peninsula there is still something different to find along its routes, some kind of spiritual energy which awakens the Soul! And this is the concept beyond this tour: to offer a modern approach to the old mystery… Southern Spain, this region of Andalusia is where settled all the civilizations of the Mediterranean world, and where the Spaniards could create not a cultural melting pot but a very peculiar culture. You will thoroughly enjoy experiencing firsthand what zest for life is really about an adventure in the most authentic Spanish region: energetic, exotic, spiritual, eclectic and fun…

I wanted to write to thank all of you at Terra Traditions for putting together such a perfect, organized, smoothly run journey. Our tour guides were just amazing, so knowledgable about everything. The trip up to the Douro Valley, and the jeep ride near Sierra Nevada mountains, were extraordinary highlights. Our favourite days were in Porto, as you can see by the picture. They were filled with a sense of history and culture.
I have already recommended Terra Traditions to our friends. I would love to visit again and will be calling you for sure. Thank you!
Please share our appreciation to you and all the staff that were involved in putting together a most memorable family vacation. Everything worked out just wonderfully. We appreciate all the guidance we were given.
Our itinerary was great. Trini was a very good fit for our family. She was so kind, patient, and thoughtful. She made sure we got the most meaningful and best experiences. We were so surprised how each day was so different we struggled to come up with one favorite amongst us all.
We are beyond thankful for our perfect experience in Spain! Your travel agency was a perfect fit for our family and every single detail was seamless. We have already spread the word about our wonderful trip and we are letting everyone know that Terra Traditions made that happen for us.
Just wanted to say thank you for planning a very memorable trip in Spain for all my family. And thank you for all the little treats that you arranged during our journey. It was very much appreciated!
My son and I spent 15 days in southern Spain and Portugal last month, with a private guide each day, arranged by Terra. Our guide Trini was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable, fun, easy going, and flexible. Pomegranate did a superb job arranging all the lodging, logistics, etc and helped us develop an itinerary that started in Madrid, took us up the mediterranean coast, over to Granada and then straight to the Algarve beaches and Lisbon. Absolutely fantastic! I would highly recommend using Terra Traditions, and we will again for a future trip!
These regions of southern spain mostly share a Mediterranean climate, making it a year round destination. You can usually rely on pleasant mild temperatures from October to February, increasing dramatically from April to September.

Doñana National Park – Seville
Doñana is not only the most important natural reserve of Southern Europe but it is also the most protected. All the national park itself is an area of very intense protection and visits are very limited. The private visit in a special 4×4 vehicle will be the unique opportunity to discover the last unchartered land of Europe. The park is of instance beauty with an outstanding animal wild life and several extremely protected species. The views of the Beaches and the ocean with the sand dunes are absolutely unforgettable.
The Bad Lands – Granada
The region situated on the North face of Sierra Nevada is made of deserts and canyons called bad lands. A region of incredible landscapes, troglodyte villages and outstanding megalithic treasures takes us 3000 years ago, up to the origin of the Iberian mystery.
There is no matter here for spectacle, this is indeed the opposite of a show. The point is to recreate what was the essence of flamenco in the old times, a Gypsy family party or “fiesta”. An inmersión experience in which the group will integrate a team of artists and fully communicate with them.
Immerse yourself in spanish southern culture during a vibrant Flamenco lesson in Seville. You will learn the basic steps of this dance, including hand movements, and about Flamenco history as well.

The Albaycin quarter is Granada’s most emblematic old district. You will not only visit it, you will also meet and share with the most typical people like artists, Gypsies, as well as grandmothers and incredible little kids….
Private reception by one of the most important families of the Spanish aristocracy in their fascinating old palace, a 15th century traditional construction, where you will learn the way of life and the old traditions of the city. A very unique and exclusive experience.

Visit of a Manchego Cheese fabric, which works exclusively with local milk and produces an incredible cheese which has been awarded in national and international trade shows, the famous Payoyo cheese.
Old Sherry Wines
The Spanish Sherry wines are in fact the true ones as they come from the origin itself, the city of Jerez, now strictly protected by a DPO l. About 10 years ago Robert Parker (the wine advocate) came to Jerez and discovered the wines called V.O.R.S Sherry , the very old Sherry wines, selected sherries of at least 30 to 50 years old. The production of these wines has been kept only by a very few wineries, mostly family run wineries which have escaped from the extreme standarization of the sector.
