The mystical charm of the Costa de la Luz
Let yourself be captivated by the fascinating Andalusian atmosphere, its immaculate landscapes, bright colours and vibrant music, and you will experience every moment of its magic and be irretrievably enchanted, thanks to an MSC Mediterranean Cruise.
With an MSC Cruise, you can visit the most evocative and sanguine corners of the Costa de la Luz, between two continents and two seas, from whose convergence a unique light unleashes. Here stand ancient Phoenician cities such as Cadiz and Seville, abundant of unforgettable views to be admired and carried in the heart.
One of the MSC Excursions, will take you to visit Cadiz, with beautiful historical and artistic art, in particular, its Catedral de la Santa Cruz sobre el Mar. The construction of the building lasted for 116 years, in a whirling succession of different styles and tastes, first built in Baroque style, finished in neoclassical style, became an excellent synthesis of an eclectic culture under the shelter of the giant yellow dome. From its tower, you can admire the city and the embrace of the waters to as far as the eye can get.
You can enjoy relaxing walks on endless unspoilt beaches, dotted with small fishing villages, or get lost in the heart of a mystical city that is distinguished by shows and processions, history and legend (like the myth that Hercules established Cadiz), and a close connection with the sea. With an MSC Excursion, while walking through the city, you will uncover all the secrets to deciphering the culture and history of its people.
Outside the Costa de la Luz and in the heart of Andalusia stands Seville, which you can visit thanks to an MSC Excursions. This city represents flamenco, tapas, the colours and warmth of the earth; it will reveal to you the tranquillity of its parks, the liveliness of its people, an architectural heritage of enormous value, such as the Cathedral, the Giralda and the Royal Alcázars of Seville. Seville, is above all the Plaza de España, decorated with bricks, ceramics and colourful marbles, which will fascinate you for the symbolism of its structure; a tour of this city can not be considered complete without tasting some specialities of its cuisine, especially the fish, flavoured with spices.
