“Viva la Vida” On a Tour of Spain
Be prepared for happy indulgences on your tour through Spain. Flowing wine, endless plates of tapas at your table, and artistic masterpieces to wow you every day. A good starting point is the enormous art collection at the Prado museum in Madrid. Next, take a food tour, or enjoy an iconic calamari sandwich at one of many al fresco cafés in the grand central square, Plaza Mayor.
Spain has many different cultures and this is quickly apparent in the southern city of Seville. The gothic cathedral and Alcazar are its chief attractions, the latter a complex of palaces and fortifications still a royal residence. Visit the flamenco museum by day and head to a tablao for drinks and an evening of flamenco.
Complete the golden triangle of Andalusia, with a few detours: to Granada, to explore the Moorish hilltop palace-fortress of Alhambra and the Generalife gardens, and then to the Great Mosque in Cordoba.
The Spanish take food and drink very seriously. Lovers of wine, make no mistake, you must go bodega-hopping in La Rioja, Spain’s principal wine-growing region. Aged reds, aromatic whites, and delicate rosé wines are all produced here, and served with superb pinchos or “small bites”.
Just to the north is the Basque Country, another exciting cultural exploration you don’t want to miss. San Sebastian on the north coast is for those who love the good life, and where pinchos and hearty seafood are an integral part of local cuisine. In Bilbao, the Guggenheim Museum is gold, but so are the La Ribera food market and Casco Viejo, the city’s old quarter.
Barcelona is Catalan’s pride and joy. Here, the legacy of one of Spain’s most influential architects, Antoni Gaudi, is imprinted chiefly in La Sagrada Familia cathedral, over 200 years in the making, and at Park Guell, a mosaic-lined park. At night, saunter down buzzing La Rambla and take your pick from a slew of trendy tapas bars and jazz clubs.

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
All the little touches made by our Enchanting Travel consultant, Amelia Edwards, were noticed and recognized by my wife and I. Thank you for making our milestone trip (25th wedding anniversary) such a memorable one! We look forward to engaging Enchanting Travels again for our next South American adventure!!
