SpainMadrid / Barcelona
True quality of life.
Visited by many and loved by even more, Spain remains authentic and charming.
Inside its galleries and museums it possesses one of the richest cultural heritages in the world. The Spanish signature is present in each minstrel and maiden of the medieval market; in each verbena and town market; in each summer party and San Juan bonfire, with the Wine Battle in La Rioja, the Valencia’s Tomatina Festival, and the A Coruña’s International Festival of the Celtic World. Spain always knew how to mix art and leisure with flavours: amusement is different in the Islands, the tapeo ritual is tempting and Spanish cuisine is full of expression.
Madrid eclecticism in art and proposals.
The Prado, Thyssen Bornemisza, and Reina Sofía triad is a must and can be combined with the Opera and the free theatre. Paseo de la Castellana and Gran Vía always invite for a walk; one can freely enjoy the good air at Parque del Retiro. Tapeo de pinchos and beers at bar’s terraces are always the best option in summer. And at night, Salamanca and its distinction, the experimental at Malasaña, and transgressive Chueca with its design alternatives.
Roman, gothic, and always trend-setting Barcelona.
The city offers the free expressions of Antoni Gaudí’s modernism with Park Güell, Sagrada Familia, Casa Milà and Casa Batllò. But it also finds pleasure with Doménech i Montaner and Puig i Cadafalch’s fantasies. Castell de Montjuï’s jewels, Palacio de los Marqueses de Llió and Museu Picasso, among others.
The pulse of the city at La Rambla and the authentic can be enjoyed in La Mercé, Gràcia, Sants and Poblenou Festivals.
The International Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art completes the art, music, and theatre agenda.
When it comes to modern Mediterranean cuisine, Gótico, Born, Raval and, undoubtedly, Eixample izquierdo.
The audacious night can be experienced in districts such as Diagonal, Grácia, Port Vell and Port Olímpic.
Sitges, the quality and the mountains of the Mediterranean.
Costa de Garraf’s houses and shore, a scenery of luxury. Here, leisure and food are key.
Sensible and bohemian Sitges speaks in Casa de la Vila, Palau Maricel, Museo Romántico and Rusiñol Warehouse.
It wins one’s heart with xató, fideuá and cuttlefish, along with certificate of origin wines such as Penedés and Pla de Bages.
The night is amusing all year round but even more during summer, when Fiesta Mayor and February’s Carnival take place.
Seducing with its Andalusian accent, the South.
Olives, gazpacho and salmorejo; panoramic views of alhambras, mosques, and alcázares to be considered.
More Iberia signature in the Cantabric and A Costa da Morte’s cliffs, Galicia’s Parque Nacional de las Islas Atlánticas. And of course the most Galician: prawn, scallop, lobster, shoulder of pork with parsnip tops, and queimada in your palate.
