– Spanish Horse ““ Spain, specifically Andalucía, is a quality model for all horse lovers all over the world.  In the XVIth century, King Philip II, entrusted the 1st Marquis of El Carpio the creation of the Royal Stables of Córdoba, where they brought together the best stud horses and mares from the lands bordering the Guadalquivir River. This was the origin of what is known as the pure spanish race horse.

The devotion to the search of excellence in this animal, worldwide admired for its expressiveness and the elegance of its movements, is still the motto of many breeders mostly settled in the areas of Jerez and Córdoba.  We can organize from horse riding routes to visits to the most important horse breeders, “doma vaquera” or country dressage.

– Pure Flamenco –   Song, dance, guitar, rhythm”¦ you can breathe flamenco in Spain with all its passion and emotion. Flamenco is not a touristic attraction. It is part of our daily life, part of our character.  We invite you to discover it truly. From the professional shows of the “Tablaos” or Festivals of reputed artists, to the “Peñas” (local associations) and bars where spectators jump into stage to dance or sing showing their passion for this thrilling art.

We will show you the magic triangle of Seville-Cádiz-Jerez, birthplace of the flamenco, but also other regions in Spain, each one with their own character.

– Hunting – The hunting tradition goes back in Spain to the beginning of our history. The topography and climate have developed a wide range of species that go from the red deer in the meadows to the ibex in the mountains or the fallow deer, roe deer, wild board or wild sheep which complete the hunting diversity of our country.

Special attention needs to be given without doubt, to the red partridge, ducks and other species that compose the shooting modalities. The ways of hunting are also most varied and we offer them all to you.
