IISES Annual Conference, Sevilla

Conference Tours

Free for conference participants.

The aim of our conference tours is to provide opportunity for informal networking, possibly creating partnership among the conference participants.

First conference tour: Ronda
Tuesday, March 6

The bus leaves at 9AM from the Hotel Novotel to Ronda.

Ronda is a unique town sitting above a deep ravine and surrounded by lush river valleys. The Puente Nuevo (New Bridge), completed in 1793, offers breathtaking views over the El Tajo gorge.  The bridge joins the old Moorish town and the newer El Mercadillo part of the city.
The city walls and gates were built by the Moors throughout the Islamic era.

Ronda has many sightseeings. Plaza Duquesa de Parcent is Ronda’s most picturesque square. The cathedral Santa Maria del Mayor is a mixture of gothic and renaissance styles. Also the Mondragon palace is worth seeing.
The Cuenca Gardens are located on the ledges of the Tajo and distributed across a series of terraces - the views are fantastic.

Lunch and entrance fees are not included.

We will be back at about 18.00. The time of return is approximate and cannot be guaranteed.

Participants who registered for this conference tour will receive a tour voucher at the registration desk. 

Children under six years are not allowed on the tour.

Second conference tour: Cordóba
Thursday, March 8

The bus leaves at 9AM from the Hotel Novotel to Cordóba.

The old city of Cordóba, still surrounded by ancient Roman walls, has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site 

Puente Romano (Roman Bridge) is the legacy of the Roman period. But the most well-known sight of Cordóba is La Mezquita, the largest temple in the former Muslim Spain. Inside, you can admire more than 850 columns that contrasts with the Christian renaissance choir integrated into the mosque. This merge between the mosque and the Christian cathedral took place in the thirteenth century.

Nearby the Mezquita is the old Jewish quarter, a picturesque part of the old Cordóba.  

The Alcázar with beautiful gardens just next to Mezquita used to be the residence of Moorish caliphs, and in 1328 it became the home of the Spanish kings.

Lunch and entrance fees are not included.

We will be back at about 18.00. The time of return is approximate and cannot be guaranteed.

Participants who registered for this conference tour will receive a tour voucher at the registration desk. 

Children under six years are not allowed on the tour.
