Not just the home of sangria, Flamenco, paella and siestas, Spain has a lot more to offer the visitor. Whether it's a city break in beautiful Madrid, or vibrant Barcelona; a week soaking up the culture of Andalucia, or just soaking up the sun in Mallorca, you'll want to return to discover more.
In the centre of the country the capital Madrid has an excellent selection of art, ranging from some staggering works by Velasquez, Goya and El Greco in the Prado to Picasso’s masterpiece Guernica, which when seen in the flesh amazes with its emotional power and sheer size. Madrid makes a great short break destination, with a number of fine restaurants and plenty to do, from relaxing in the Parque del Buen Retiro to shopping in the huge Sunday flea market, El Rastro.
A modern and cosmopolitan city, which has some superb museums, Barcelona is also renowned for its outstanding gothic architecture. The beach towns of the Costa Brava offers some smaller isolated beaches and tranquil low-key fishing villages.
If any region could be said to represent Spain, then that region would be Andalucia, matching the popular image of Spain of bullfights, sherry and flamenco. With the narrow winding streets of its towns, relaxed pace of life and lively cities where you can either explore art, enjoy a tapas crawl or catch some live flamenco, Andalucia offers tremendous variety.
Whether it’s a city break or a beach holiday you want let Revere Travel do the hard work in getting you there.
