Splendors of Spain

Scroll

Feel the passion of the Spanish people at every proud monument, in every Flamenco-filled taberna, and on every sparkling beach you visit across this delightful nation. Gaze upon gilded palaces, timeless fortifications and wow-worthy landscapes that influenced such artistic juggernauts as Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudí. Dig into hearty, seafood-rich paella, or take a more modest bite of one of endless creative tapas dishes. Notice how your nose perks up as you catch the scent of orange blossoms and olives while passing through the fruitful groves of the Andalusia region. In artisan shops, gently rub your hand across handmade ceramics and supple Spanish leathers. While beautiful and world-class, Spain is much more than just its capital or second city. On this tour, you’ll discover that firsthand.
