Spain

Spain

Spain is a destination of contrasts and diversity, joined at the core by the beating heart of romance. It’s a feast for the eyes and the senses. Beautiful mountain landscapes of the Pyrenees and snowcapped Sierra Nevada provide a backdrop to the vast plains of Andalucía. Wild cliff faces are balanced by sparkling coves, and ancient villages perched on hilltops, hidden in valleys, or doted along the coastline provide endless wonder into Spain’s days of old. There’s a palpable pride in cuisine here and travelers will be rewarded with fresh flavors sourced from local produce with the emphasis on simplicity to let the ingredients shine. Roman ruins and grand monuments stand beside spirited architecture created by Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudí, and interweave in everyday life of modern Spain. A street performance of the flamenco will touch your soul and draw you into this energetic culture that invented the term fiesta.

Madrid

Madrid

Filled with energy, the destination blends old and new in a way describes the city best – formal yet casual. From the majestic Plaza Mayor and the early morning flea markets trading gems and dusty antiques, to the tascas, or tapas bars, filled with locals enjoying a drink and bite to eat, this city pulses with a strong and proud identity. For lovers of art, Madrid delivers in spades with masterpieces by Spanish painters adorning the walls of the city’s world-class galleries. Sure there are medieval mansions, Madrid baroque architecture, and royal palaces to admire but Madrid’s reputation as the city that knows how to live is displayed every evening when the streets come alive with droves of people dancing, eating, talking and drinking their way into the early hours of the morning.
