Land of flamenco, la Tomatina, and running with the bulls, Spain is a Mediterranean paradise for those with a taste for the good life. Awe at the Sagrada Família in Barcelona, wander through the shady boulevards of Madrid, and chase down some authentic Andalucian tapas with some of the world’s finest wine. Lovers of nightlife need only hop over to Mallorca or Ibiza for the beach party of a lifetime, while continental travelers can traverse a Spanish landscape peppered with stunning architectural remnants of both the ancient Ottoman and Roman empires. Spain provides a scintillating Mediterranean experience like no other.
