Spain:
The Spice of Life.

From the breathtaking coast of Catalonia, Spain is passionate and diverse. Signature Spanish cuisine and fiestas. Flamenco and bullfighting. Exploring Spain is like uncovering the story of Spain itself. There’s Seville’s old quarter, a myriad of winding streets and pedestrian squares converging on the famous Cathedral, built atop a former mosque. The eclectic architectural styles of the Alcazar, a palace dating back to the 1360s. Granada, a Medieval town nestled in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, with an amazing heritage of Arab and Jewish cultures, and home of the Alhambra, a 12th century Moorish palace and fortification. The Caves of Sacromonte, where the Gypsies initially settled more than 600 years ago carry the echoes of strumming guitars in a flamenco cantes. And Barcelona in the region of Catalonia, with a distinct identity and a very rich, ancient culture that dates back to the tenth century.
