Exploring the walled cities & wild coastlines of Spain

When you hear the name Spain, the first thing that comes to mind is their passion for living the good life. It is a country more diverse than you can ever imagine.

From bulls to beer, Spain is a diverse country with cultures differing widely from one place to another. A good way to combine nature and tradition, this is a country that loves to live in the present.

Europe’s third populated metropolis, Madrid feels like many cities; one at the cutting edge of art, nightlife and gastronomy. When you are in town for a day, it’s wise to set aside a few hours for Madrid’s royal palaces and Golden Triangle of museums to discover an eclectic variety of European art.

This country is obsessed with food and wine and for good reasons. Your day can start with a Spanish omelet followed by touching down on traditional recipes handed through generations. The delectable reveries and the gastronomic experience will surely be a major highlight of your trip.

Art imitates life in Spain where you will discover the magnificent jewels of Islamic architecture, where great civilisations have risen and fallen. These grand palatial monuments coexist alongside the architectural monuments and World Heritage sites designated by UNESCO.

Home to architecture, exciting nightlife and world-class dining, Barcelona is a place with a vintage life and musicals. The palace complex of Granade, the Alhambra is perhaps the most refined example of Islamic art which dates back in 889 AD.

Nowhere is it quintessentially Spanish than Seville with its precious skylines and soulful secrets, which played a pivotal role in the evolution of flamenco, bullfighting and rock art. Perhaps you would sense it along a crowded street where the world has come to play. Or a moment when a flamenco performer touches your soul.
