an exotic destination even by its European neighbors. Luxury travel to Spain promises to be an unforgettable experience.
From its glory days as a global empire that stretched from South America to Asia, to the more recent and turbulent 20th century, there is a wealth of history to uncover within its borders. Diverse cultures have converged on the Iberian Peninsula over the centuries, leaving their mark on the cuisine, architecture, and vibrant cities of Spain. The Moorish influence in Andalusia feels a world away from the Western European metropolis of Madrid. Then of course, there’s the Basque country, a singularly unique subculture that has retained its identity in the face of military and economic pressure to conform. The many proud provinces of Spain are so distinct, they almost act as their own countries, with dialects, customs and cuisine all their own.
As much as the world has shaped Spain, so Spanish natives have played a role in shaping the arts and culture of the rest of the world.
