Spain is, above all, a mosaic of cultures.Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Bilbao, Cordoba, and Granada are examples of the harmonious coexistence of tradition and modernity in each and every Spanish city.

More than 50 million tourists visit Spain each year, making it the second most visited country in the world, So ask us about Spain! Anything at all. A trip to Spain is a celebration of diversity, an opportunity to enjoy our excellent climate, excellent cuisine, and joie de vivre. But also, it is a chance to discover our exceptional monumental heritage. History has left its traces in a country with a unique legacy: Prehistoric caves, Roman remains, Jewish and Arabic architecture. Spain is one of the richest countries in the world with regard to monumental heritage; not surprisingly Spain has the highest number of UNESCO World Heritage sites and it is also home to the Camino de Santiago, Europe’s most important cultural itinerary.

There are artistic styles in Spain that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world, such as the Mudéjar. Monuments like the Segovia Aqueduct, the Alhambra in Granada and the Great Mosque of Cordoba, considered to be the most important Islamic monument ever built in the West, tell us of the Roman and Moorish presence on the peninsula. There are excellent examples of architecture of other styles, such as Renaissance, Baroque and Modernist, the last of which is summed up in the work of Gaudí. In present day Spanish architecture is universally avant-garde with artist s such as Calatrava or Moneo.
You will also find the great masters of painting in Spain. The Prado Museum is one of the world’s best art galleries amongst others. As far as contemporary art is concerned, the Guggenheim in Bilbao is not to be missed. Although, on the subject of art, there is one you will want to sample for sure: the art of Spanish cuisine. Chefs like Ferrán Adriá, Juan María Arzak have put Spanish gastronomy at the pinnacle of the international scene.


Another option is to explore stunning natural landscapes. Here, within reach, you have more than 400 protected natural spaces that also make up the largest and best conserved nature reserve in southern Europe. But that’s not all. You’ll also have the privilege of seeing the European sanctuary of many endangered species.

Don't miss the chance to take part in local Spanish traditions and fiestas: from streets carpeted in flowers to fire works-by-the-sea, from the running of the bulls to concerts and ballet in the gardens of the caliphs.
Experience our unique, dazzling natural environment, become acquainted with the customs of our people, and share with them their holiday celebrations and popular traditions.

Spain is littered with hundreds of glittering beaches; flamenco bailaors (dancers) swirl in flounces of colour; and toreros (bullfighters) strut their stuff in the bullrings. Summer holidaymakers gather around great pans of steaming paella (at its tasty best in Valencia) and pitchers of sangria… The cultures of the Celt and Iberian populations were gradually romanized (Latinized) at differing rates in different parts of Hispania.

I really love the Spanish traditions and fiestas because it is really great to watch and join for especially the Flamenco, which is a musical tradition in the country's south,particularly in Andalusia. That is where you have to move to see and listen first rate dancing and guitar playing.
