Day 5Relax on your final day at the hotel, or join our optional excursion to Cordoba, the former Roman and Moorish capital of Spain. Here you'll discover the breathtaking Mezquita, the vast Mosque into which the Christian cathedral has been incorporated, and which reflects Cordoba's position as the greatest Moorish city in Europe.Later, enjoy a last dinner at the hotel.

Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.
