Windswept Roman ruins, cathedrals of rare power and incomparable jewels of Islamic architecture speak of a country where the great civilisations of history have risen, fallen and left behind their indelible mark. More recently, what other country could produce such rebellious and relentlessly creative spirits as Salvador Dalí, Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudí and place them front and centre in public life? And here, grand monuments of history coexist alongside architectural creations of such daring that it becomes clear Spain’s future will be every bit as original as its past.
Spain’s diverse landscapes stir the soul. The Pyrenees and the Picos de Europa are as beautiful as any mountain range on the continent, while the snowcapped Sierra Nevada rises up improbably from the sun-baked plains of Andalucía; these are hiking destinations of the highest order. The wildly beautiful cliffs of Spain’s Atlantic northwest are offset by the charming coves of the Mediterranean. And everywhere you go, villages of timeless beauty perch on hilltops, huddle in valleys and cling to coastal outcrops as tiny but resilient outposts of Old Spain. That’s where the country’s charms are most likely to take hold.
The breadth of gastronomic experience that awaits you is breathtaking and sure to be a highlight of your trip. Spanish cooking, while staying close to its roots with traditional recipes handed down through the generations, is certainly to experimentation and there are plenty of inventive modern dishes available at restaurants all over the country for your culinary pleasure.
For all Spain’s storied history, it is every bit a dynamic and modern land. Maybe you will feel it in a crowded street full of celebrating locals, or perhaps when a flamenco performer’s sound resonates deep within your soul. Here, life is always a fiesta – and you’re always invited!
