The Many Regions of Spain

Spain is a diverse country, with 17 unique regions, each with its own distinct culture, cuisine, and charm. Of course, the lively streets of Barcelona and the historic city of Madrid should always be on your Spanish itinerary but… don’t stop there! Travel to Andalusia to see Moorish architecture and to Galicia for its lush greenery. Spain truly offers an array of experiences for every traveler!

Good Eats

Spanish cuisine will satisfy everyone’s palate. Savor authentic tapas in Seville, indulge in paella by the beach in Valencia, and sample Basque pintxos in San Sebastian. Pair your meals with local wines or sangria, all while enjoying the lively ambiance of Spanish bars and restaurants.

Art and Architecture

Spain is the perfect destination for art and architecture lovers. Don’t miss La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona or the Alhambra palace and fortress in Granada. Add a visit to the renowned Prado Museum in Madrid to your itinerary and see artwork by Goya, Velázquez, and Picasso.

Spanish Culture

Immerse yourself in the country’s vibrant culture by attending one of Spain’s many festivals. Watch the passionate flamenco dancers in Seville, experience the fun and mess of the La Tomatina festival in Buñol, or be captivated by the Holy Week processions throughout the country.



Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, is a city of hills, colorful buildings, and stunning views of the Tagus River. Stroll through the historic Alfama district, take a tram ride through the city’s narrow streets, and don’t miss a visit to the iconic Belém Tower.


Porto, famous for its port wine cellars and stunning riverside setting, is a must-visit while in Portugal. Tour a wine cellar in Vila Nova de Gaia, cross the Dom Luís I Bridge for breathtaking views, and try a traditional francesinha sandwich.


Just a short train ride from Lisbon lies Sintra, a UNESCO World Heritage town known for its palaces and lush landscapes. Here you can explore the colorful Pena Palace, tour the Quinta da Regaleira, and hike through the Sintra mountains.

The Algarve’s Coast

Located in Portugal’s southern region, the Algarve, is home to some of Europe’s most stunning beaches. Whether you’re into water sports, soaking up the sun, or exploring hidden coves, the Algarve has it all. Lagos, Albufeira, and Faro are popular destinations in this region.
