Fall in Spain: Fruit, Fish, Feathers and Faith!

It is said that, if you walk a mile in another man’s shoes, you know how they  feel. This is true of both our walking and cycling holidays – when you travel  slowly, with the express purpose of exploring your surrounds on foot or by bike,  you discover every inch of the place.

Breakaway’s Spain offers some fantastic walking and cycling – largely  due to its diverse natural beauty, cultural heritage, temperate climate and  friendly people who welcome visitors as they would long lost family.

Here are just some reasons to consider a holiday in Spain this  year:

Awesome architecture

The great Moorish cities of Andalucia need little introduction, and our Highlights  of Andalucia tour combines these “must see” sights with off-the-beaten-track  white villages, hidden hamlets and abandoned cortijos. You’ll visit  Seville’s stunning Alcazar, Cordoba’s Mezquita and the world-famous Alhambra  palace in Granada, arguably the most beautiful city in Europe.

Sensational citrus

Southern Spain is well known for its lemon groves and orange orchards – some  of the world’s finest oranges come from Valencia. Top walking choices here  include Secrets  of Andalucia, Vistas  of Valencia and Hidden  Valleys of Cordoba.

Tempting trout

In the Sierra  de Grazalema Natural Park, you’ll find eagles, hoopoes, griffon vultures –  and some of the largest trout in southern Europe! There are wonderful views too  from the shattered limestone peaks – even out to Gibraltar and as far as  northern Africa on a clear day.

Beautiful  birds

With over 200 species of birds, the Canary  Islands are an ornithologist’s paradise! You’ll spot Barbary falcons,  ravens, buzzards, sweet-singing yellow canaries and Berthelot’s Pipits – endemic  to these islands.
