In 1790, a family from Madrid’s nobility built their country palace on the ruins of a castle named “De Negrales.” By the 19th Century, the Marquis of Villamejor founded his famous stables within this site, which housed the renowned Figueroa group of breeding mares.

Post-conference Bicycle Trip – Spain Andalucia

Hindriks Global Bicycle Tours is organizing a 10-day post conference bicycle tour in Andalucia, in the southern part of Spain close to the Mediterranean Sea. Spring is the best time to visit, in early May the trees and wildflowers are in bloom; the scent of the orange blossoms fills the plazas.

The area was occupied by the Moors in the Middle Ages from 700 AD until the end of the 15th century. Instead of going through a dark medieval period, they developed a highly organized civilization. Many splendid monuments of these times are left. Cordoba has the exquisite mosque (the Mezquita) and Sevilla, among others, the large Gothic cathedral Alcazar. Both these towns (and many more smaller ones also) have a quintessential southern Spanish flair. The local atmosphere and charm reflects that the pace of modern life is less important than the general enjoyment of life. Ferias and romarias are important; music and dance get a lot of attention. The soul of the region is reflected in its love for the bullfight and the flamenco. The ride takes you through a gorgeous landscape with olive groves, orange trees, and extremely interesting historical towns. You’ll stay in Cordoba, Palma del Rio, Seville and Mazagon. Highlights, apart from the towns and its monuments, are a flamenco show, replicas of Columbus ships and the monastery from where he sailed to discover the “New’ World. This trip combines great nature, fantastic towns, interesting history and culture with nice riding. Accommodations are excellent, with 4 star ratings. Most hotels are located in an attractive historical town or scenic setting. The riding is easy to moderate, mostly flat, and rolling terrain. Daily distances are between 30 and 35 miles with two longer point to point riding days. Trip is 10 days/9 nights with 4 two-night stay and the last night will be near Seville Airport to enable trip participants to fly back to USA on the last Sunday morning (please, note, that if you are interested in this trip, you should schedule flying into Madrid for the meeting and out of Seville on Sunday May 15). Trip price $ 3,800, single supplement $ 750. Trip starts at conference hotel in Madrid, trip ends in Sevilla. Included are bus transfers, 9 nights/10 days in luxury comfortable hotels, all breakfasts, 6 dinners, trekking bikes (Giant Aero RS1), entrance fees to selected sights, bicycle guides, and support van. Dates are from Friday, May 6 till Sunday, May 15, 2016. For more information, email Herman: herman@hindrikstours.com
