From bustling modern cities like Barcelona and Madrid, to the rich Moorish heritage of Seville, Spain is a country of contrasts. Explore the quirky Catalan architecture of Barcelona, shop ‘til you drop in Madrid’s swanky boutiques or experience the impassioned flamenco dance in a traditional bar in Seville – the choice is yours.
Do as the Spanish do and pair a glass of cold beer with a few tapas dishes. Tuck into albóndigas (pork meatballs), higados de pollo al vino de Jerez (chicken livers braised in sherry) and gambas al ajillo (prawns cooked in olive oil and garlic).
Madrid’s Calle de Serrano is dotted with high-end boutiques from some of Spain’s trendiest designer labels. In Barcelona, head to Plaça de Sant Josep Oriol, a quaint, cobbled street featuring quirky handicraft shops and an outdoor art market. For vintage clothing and souvenirs, check out Seville’s lively Alfalfa district.
