Road Trip Seville to Granada - HELP in planning

Jump to last reply

My party is 4 adults and will be arriving in Barcelona in end of September. We will be picking up a rental car to drive from Seville and drop the car off in Granada, continue to Madrid by train and then go finish the trip in Portugal.

It is my first time in Spain and Portugal and really need some help in planning the trip particularly the road trip between Seville and Granada. There seems to be so many options. I will have the car for 4 to 5 days depending on the trips. I really want to enjoy the white villages which is one of the MUST DO.

Arriving in Barcelona cannot be changed. Also ending Spain in Madrid allows us to go to Lisbon or Porto more easily. Anything else in between can be adjusted.

Current plan:
1) Arrive in Barcelona - 5 nights
2) Fly or take train from Barcelona to Seville (it seems train service is better to Seville instead of Granada.
3) Plan to stay in Seville for 3 nights - Can we do Seville in 2 days instead?
4) Pick up rental car from Seville and start driving toward Granada.
5) Driving to Arcos de la Frontera (couple of hours stay), Zahara de la Sierra (couple of hours stay), on the way will hit El Bosque, Benaocaz, and ending the day at Grazalema. Is that too aggressive? Planning to stay overnight at Ronda.
6) Start at Ronda early in the morning and will be in Ronda till 3pm, start driving to Carmona with overnight stay at Carmona.
7) Driving to Cordoba or any other alternatives
8) Driving to Granada and drop off the car.
9) Spend 2 nights in Granada
10) Take train to Madrid - 5 nights
11) Take overnight train to Lisbon for 3 nights
12) Take train to Porto for 3 nights.

I really need help in planning the road trip. Not sure if it is better to spend another day or two to fit in other parts such as Cadiz or El Puerto de Santa Maria.

Your insight is much appreciated.
