Escorted Tours and Holidays in Spain

Scratch the surface of Spain and you’ll find a land infused with history and tradition, from the Moorish palaces of Andalusia to the soaring cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. Epic landscapes evoke tales of El Cid and Don Quixote, while storied cities are piled high with architectural treasures that hark back to the glories of empire. Yet Spain is also a dynamic and modern nation, home to exciting cities and a vibrant culture with a constant capacity for reinvention. It also remains a patchwork of proudly independent regions with their own traditions and languages, from the lush green hills of Galicia to the ancient Basque Country.

Cosmopolitan Madrid is infused with the spirit of the movida, the post-Franco flowering of the arts that has defined modern Spain, while Barcelona dazzles with the architecture of Antoni Gaudí and the tangled streets of the Gothic Quarter. The whitewashed villages and fragrant orange groves of Andalusia are the classic image of Spain, and it’s here that you’ll find the Moorish cities of Granada and Córdoba, where 700 years of Islamic rule produced magnificent buildings such as the Alhambra Palace. The mountainous kingdoms of northern Spain were the only part of the Iberian peninsula that held out against the Moors, and this verdant landscape still retains a deep spiritual significance, criss-crossed by pilgrims following the famous Camino de Santiago.

 

Touring Highlights of Spain

  • Madrid is at the centre of Spain, both geographically and politically, and is home to the extraordinary art collections of the Prado, Thyssen-Bornamisza and Reina Sofia galleries. 
  •  Barcelona is a wonderfully cosmopolitan city with so much to offer: the surreal architecture of Gaudí, the paintings of Picasso and Miró, the bustle of the Ramblas, the golden beaches of Barceloneta and the medieval streets of the Gothic Quarter. 
  •  Andalusia is where the Moorish influence on Spain is most keenly felt, and Granada’s stunning Alhambra Palace is a masterpiece of medieval Islamic architecture.  
  •  The spectacular cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is the endpoint of one of the world’s great pilgrimage routes, said to be the last resting place of Saint James the apostle. 
  •  The Basque Country is one of Spain’s most fascinating regions, with its own distinctive culture and a language unrelated to any other on earth. Foodies and surfers flock to lovely San Sebastián, while Bilbao’s striking Guggenheim Museum has become a symbol of the city’s reinvention as a cultural hub. 
  • The beautiful hilltop citadel of Toledo is an engrossing warren of medieval streets, a place where Christians, Muslims and Jews once lived in harmony, as evidenced by the eclectic mix of religious architecture. 
  • The Balearic Islands have something for everyone; culture vultures will enjoy Palma de Mallorca’s towering cathedral, Menorca offers wild beaches and peaceful relaxation, while Ibiza attracts both party animals and those in search of the White Isle’s hippie roots. 
  • Sophisticated Seville is one of Spain’s most enchanting cities, where the streets are lined with fragrant orange trees and the sound of flamenco fills the air.  
  •  Valencia, Spain’s third city, is a paragon of innovation and reinvention, filled with eye-catching modern architecture by the likes of Santiago Calatrava. 
  • The Canary Islands offer a lot more than just winter sun, including spectacular volcanic scenery, Spanish colonial architecture and a unique culture that still bears traces of the archipelago’s original North African inhabitants.
