The Organising Team provides you a selection of proposals for spending your last day of the EUPRIO Conference 2018 discovering the city of Sevilla and other marvellous cities of the Andalusia Region. All tours are organised by Barceló Congresos. Please make your choice and book your tour on the SOCIAL PROGRAM REGISTRATION FORM.


Sevilla: Catedral and Alcazares


Some cities blast you away, others slowly win you over. Seville disarms and seduces you. Its historic centre, lorded over by a colossal Gothic cathedral, is an intoxicating mix of resplendent Mudéjar palaces, baroque churches and winding medieval lanes. Flamenco clubs keep the intimacy and intensity of this centuries-old tradition alive whilst aristocratic mansions recall the city’s past as a showcase Moorish capital and, later, a 16th-century metropolis rich on the back of New World trade.





But while history reverberates all around, Seville is as much about the here and now as the past. It’s about eating tapas in a crowded bar or seeing out the end of the day over a drink on a buzzing plaza. The sevillanos have long since mastered the art of celebrating and the city’s great annual festivals, notably the Semana Santa and Feria de Abril, are among Spain’s most heartfelt.


Cordoba is situated in the interior of Andalusia where past and modernity blend in together. This thousand-year-old city, which has the World Heritage designation, is a living legacy of the different cultures that settled here throughout its history.Not many places in the world can say they have been the capital of Hispania Ulterior (Further Spain) under the Roman Empire, and capital of the Umayyad Caliphate. This splendour can also be seen because of the intellectualism of this city of knowledge, where figures like Seneca, Averroes or Maimonides were born.If you walk round the old quarter you will discover a beautiful network of alleyways, squares and white-washed courtyards surrounding the Great Mosque-Cathedral, which reflects the importance of the city in the Middle Ages, and is the symbol of the city.

Without disregarding its splendid past, Cordoba is definitely a modern city that has been able to adapt to the present day, offering the most modern infrastructures and services, as well as a large network of hotels.Very well connected to the other Andalusian capitals, Cordoba also has the high speed train (AVE) and a very extensive railway network linking it to all the big cities, like Madrid and Seville. Once inside the city, a large network of buses and taxis enable visitors to reach any destination in a few minutes.

Cordoba is also synonymous with art, culture and leisure, thanks to a myriad of cultural events that are organised here throughout the year: Flamenco festivals, concerts, ballet and other activities that are complemented by a number of museums and an exciting nightlife.Meanwhile, the province is home to important buildings of the Andalusian heritage, whose highest expression is the Medina Azahara, located on the outskirts of the city. But there is great spectacle also for nature lovers. The parks of Sierra de Cardeña in Los Pedroches and Montoro, the Hornachuelos Sierra and Sierras Subbéticas offer the possibility of practising all kinds of open-air sports, while at the same time enjoying the natural wealth of this province.


Jerez and Cádiz

Beaches, dunes and salt marches form the Bahía, a marine nature reserve that is the setting for Cádiz, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. These ocean waters are fresher than the Mediterranean, so going for a stroll and a dip is a whole pleasure experience.

The Tacita de Plata, as it is known, is believed to be the oldest Western city. Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans and Arabs all settled in this region, mainly due to its links with the sea.


Here visitors can wander around the history-laded quarters, such as the Barrio de la Viña, the hot spot during the Carnival season and the best place to enjoy fresh fish from the Bahía, the Old Town, where most of the monuments are, and the Barrio del Pópulo, of medieval origin.


Doñana and El Rocío

This town is located in the south of the province of Huelva, 45 Km. from the provincial capital and 64 Km. from Seville. The municipal district comprises three distinct urban centres: AlmonteEl Rocío and Matalascañas. It is primarily a farming area, gradually giving way to dense scrubland and, finally, Doñana, with its marshes and dunes.
