Hola Gastronomía!

From its Roman relics to Muslim palaces, baroque cathedrals to Modernista constructions, Spain is a treasure chest of artistic and architectural marvels across a matchless cultural palette. Its landscape is a mixture of rugged mountain ranges, fabulous beaches and historic medieval towns dotted across it’s rolling interior. Marvel at the sites and witness the zest for life of the vibrant local people as you visit many of its most famous centers – Barcelona, the cosmopolitan capital of Catalonia; Zaragoza, with its history of co-habited Muslim, Roman & Jewish cultures; the Rioja wine capital of Logrono; the festival coastal resort of San Sebastian; the Castillian capital of Burgos; the capital, Madrid including its world famous Prado museum; and finally the former Spanish capital, and now UNESCO town, of Toledo. And combine all this with visits to local bodegas as you sample one of the country’s finest assets, its superior wine collections, as well as experiencing the different gastronomical flavors of the region – including hands-on cooking classes. A rich tapestry of experiences that will leave you hungry and thirsty, for more….
