Sightseeing Priorities in Andalucia

Jump to last reply

Thanks to all the tips in previous posts I have a rough itinerary worked out but am still struggling with Andalucia portion of our 20 night trip to Spain for this retired, active couple.
Arriving in Barcelona (6 nights), train to Madrid (5 nights),and eventually departing from Seville (5 nights).
This leaves approximately 4 nights for Andalucia region.
Much will be done by day trips out of centers (e.g. Toledo, Cordoba)
We would like to see the major sights but are worried we will be overwhelmed with too many Mosques/Castles, and would love to spend the majority of time enjoying the ambience/culture by walking (biking?).
Under consideration is Granada, Ronda & White Hill Towns, Cadiz, Tarifa as overnights
Are....
Alcázar of Seville
Mezquita de Cordoba
Alhambra of Granada
All must sees?
Can we concentrate on just 1 or 2 without missing the "heart of Spain"?
The time/difficulty (without a car) it takes to get to Granada and Ronda is significant, and am wondering if we just go to Seville with a day trip to Cordova we will not "miss out"?
We could rent a car, but the expense of parking and hassle in the major cities makes me wonder if it is worth it?
Any more help or suggestion would be really appreciated!
Thanks & Cheers
