Vestiges of our History


Moorish Heritage:
During Moorish Arab invasion of 711 A.D, almost the entire Iberian Peninsula fell within their control. During the subsequent centuries, the Christians, from their stronghold in Austurias, slowly began to regain the lost territory, until the mid-13th century only the area that today corresponds to Andalucia remained in the hands of the Moors. The principal cities such as : In Cordoba, you will visit one of the largest and most ancient mosques, a true forest of exquisite columns and one of the highpoints of the architecture of the Moorish period of Spain. In Seville, you will be able to stroll narrow streets, clearly inherited from the Moorish period, and climb one of the loveliest minarets in existence. In Granada, you will walk through the sumptuous rooms of one of the most celebrated and best-conserved medieval Islamic palaces. And all this without leaving Spain…

Jews in Sepharad: It is not known exactly when the first Jews arrived on the Iberian Peninsula, but possibly, it was before the imposition of the Roman Empire and gradually began to be assimilated into the society of the time. With the Moorish invasion, the Jewish culture in Spain reached its height of splendor, living peacefully with Arabs and Christian alike in principal cities such as Toledo, Segovia, Caceres, Tuldela, Cordoba, Gerona…  which preserve their Jewish District, Synagogues … etc. The Jewish culture found itself at home and with an important numerical presence. This is evident from the rich Jewish heritage that has been passed down from innumerable medieval villages and cities scattered about the peninsula and where it is still possible to visit ancient Jewish enclaves.

Christian Routes: Everyone knows the classic pilgrimages to Lourdes and Fatima. We can offer a program that combines these with visits to Santiago de Compostela as well as distinct Monasteries where members of the tour will have, in addition to daily Masses, the opportunity to listen to Gregorian chants, visit buildings with some of the best collections of religious relics in the world, follow in the steps of the mystics Santa Teresa, in the footsteps of St. Ignatius of Loyola  and San Juan de la Cruz, celebrate Mass in a number of Romanesque churches and cathedrals, and enjoy the great wealth of artistic and religious richness that Spain has to offer. During Easter Week, the majority of Spanish cities and towns are resplendent with religious processions during which the most precious treasures and figures of the cathedrals and churches are carried through the streets before the admiring gaze of thousands of devotees. A unique experience that not just those who truly live their religion will find awe-inspiring. In addition, we must not neglect to mention the famous Procession of the Virgin of the Rocio, which is celebrated annually at the end of May, and is a magnet for over one million pilgrims from all corners of Spain.
 
Roman Vestiges: For those clients who find the Roman Empire fascinating we present Hispania, a tour that will take them into the heart of the ancient and glorious days of that culture in the Iberian Peninsula. While somewhat afield from center of the Empire, the peninsula had great importance to the Romans. From it they extracted such vital minerals as iron, copper, silver and gold, grew cereals, olives and grapes, established many settlements that today are principal cities, developed important civil architectural works (e.g. the Aqueduct of Segovia), major commercial routes, and left the heritage of a culture, language and laws that is at the base of the modern Spanish state. Led by experts in the Roman legacy of the Iberian Peninsula, your clients will follow routes that will provide them with in-depth knowledge of the profound influence that is to be found across the length and breath of modern day Spain and Portugal.

Vestiges of our History
The first tourists came to the Iberian Peninsula well over two thousand year ago. And while the concept of package tours was still a twinkle in some far off genius`s eye, as is the case today, many of these pioneer tourists were seduced by the climate and the Peninsula`s other charms. After years of arduous touristic exploration, they settled in the most advantageous sites to begin a modest (by today`s standards) but prosperous trade activity. The first tourist to come “ en mass” were the Romans. Consciencious  to a fault of their responsibility to future generations of tourists, they founded Pamplona (so there would be a place for the running of the bulls), constructed the walled city of Lugo (to control the debauchery of future generations of Gallegan youth), the aqueduct of Segovia, the Theatre of Merida, as well as a myriad of other “ruins” that have withstood the ensuing trample of touristic feet with astonishing success. As with all good tourists, when they returned home they did so with souvenirs, principally gold and silver, olive oil and wine.But the tourist trade is volatile, depending on the whims of the gods of economy and politics. The wave of Roman tourists was replaced by that of Roman tourists was replaced by that of the Visigoths. They were not as rich culturally and economically as the Roman`s during their hay day, leading many bad tongues to talk of cheap tourism, but the fac is the Visigoths had the foresight to convert  to Christianity so the Crusaders could later beat back the wave of Moors tourists coming from the south. Of course, this was not done in a day, actually it took over eight centuries, and while waiting to be expulsed, the Moors spent their idle hours creating a unique and splendorous touristic legacy (Cordoba`s, Mosque, Seville`s Golden Tower, Granada`s Alhambra). All of the Iberian Peninsula was not, of course, Christian and Moors. For over a millennium, the Sefardi had been contributing to Spain`s touristic legacy, while living in harmony with the numerically large contemporaries. At moments, live as a tourist was perhaps simpler and less dangerous back then, fortunately, as this tranquil coexistence allowed for the construction of bath and synagogues in such cities as Toledo, Cordoba and Girona for the perusal of future generations of tourists. But the winner takes all, including the tourism. The Christians turned inflexible and deported the remaining Moors and Sefardi (or insided on their conversion), and then, following the tentative ventures of Columbus, began an unprecedented wave of outgoing touristic fervor that changed the face of the international touristic trade for generations to come. But things were happening on the national touristic level as well. But things were happening on the national touristic level as well. A flurry of religious activity provided future tourists with a plethora of Romanesque churches, monasteries and cathedrals along the pilgrimage route of the Way of Santiago, and shortly after the church coffers were resplendent enough to erect the magnificent Gothic cathedrals of Leon, Toledo and Seville.
