It can give you the full experience neatly packaged as a beach holiday, golf tour or city break, or you can pick and choose individual elements for yourself. All the ingredients are ready and waiting to be discovered and blended into the perfect holiday.
Spain seems almost deliberately crafted to tantalise the senses of today's tourists. Vibrant colours are all around, from the rainbow skirts of flamenco dancers to the flaming reds of the bull ring. The towns and cities themselves are a visual feast, with the pretty pastels of the coastal villages along the Costa Blanca and Costa Dorada contrasting with the impressive, towering facades of Spain's cities. Moorish architecture is displayed with pride in Seville, while otherworldly buildings designed by Gaudi line the streets of Barcelona. With so much fine food and drink to choose from the smells and tastes of Spain are just as enticing. Paella in Valencia and tapas in Granada are just two of the many recommendations. Meanwhile, from the energetic music of fiesta to the calm lapping of crystal waters against sandy shores, Spain's magical sounds provide the perfect soundtrack to your holiday.
