SPAIN LUXURY TRAVEL

TAILOR-MADE TRAVEL SPAIN

Spain — a country synonymous with passion, imperial conquest, rich culture, and year-round balmy weather. One of the great empires of the colonial era, Spain has left its mark all over the world. In fact, in modern times, the Spanish language boasts the second most native speakers worldwide. It has also produced some of the most acclaimed artists, both modern, such as Picasso and Dalí, and historical masters like Goya and Velázquez. Before the Spanish empire, the Moors and the Romans ruled the Iberian peninsula. Both cultures left behind extraordinary architecture, some of which is still in use today.

SPAIN'S HIGHLIGHTS

SPAIN'S HIGHLIGHTS

Andalucia

Discover the rich history of Spain’s southern region, Andalucía. Its location between Europe and Africa has made it a tempting prize, resulting in a unique heritage shaped by over 700 years of Moorish rule. Visit the most famous monument leftover from the Moorish period, the captivating Alhambra in Granada. In Córdoba, wander between columns of the Mezquita, a mosque converted into a cathedral, without the crowds, thanks to Blue Parallel’s insider access. Seville’s architectural highlights include the impressive cathedral, and the Giralda Minaret, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in the late 1100s. Another must-see, the Alcázar of Seville, is a former Moorish fort that is still partially a functioning royal palace. The white village of Ronda was beloved by Ernest Hemingway. This area is host to many other white villages known for their whitewashed walls and Moorish influence.

Barcelona

Barcelona is a vibrant and colorful city dominated by architectural masterpieces, with a distinctive culture and a unique creative scene. Wander through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, which encompasses the historical city center. Architectural highlights include buildings that date back to Roman times and the Barcelona Cathedral. The cathedral is one of the most well-known examples of Neo-Gothic architecture with its flamboyant facades and towering spires. Barcelona is also known for its Modernist architecture, mainly structures by Antoni Gaudí, Catalonia’s most famous architect. Enjoy a tour of his masterpieces, including La Pedrera, Casa Batllo, and, of course, La Sagrada Familia. The cuisine of Barcelona is as distinctive as its architecture, and no trip to the city is complete with sampling some of the famed tapas and the fresh seafood from the Mediterranean.

Basque Country

Basque Country: picturesque coastal hikes, a thriving art community, and maybe most importantly, an exceptional culinary scene. In Bilbao, the economic center of Basque Country, visit the modern architectural wonder of the Guggenheim museum. This undulating titanium-clad structure was designed by Frank Gehry and hailed by critics and the general public alike when opened in 1997. From Bilbao, travel to San Sebastian. This small but gorgeous seaside city boasts Belle Époque architecture, a profound cultural heritage, and arguably the best cuisine in the Basque Region. It has the most Michelin-starred restaurants per square meter in Europe, but even the quality of the everyday food is sublime. A walking pintxos tour reveals the best of the local gastronomic essence.

Madrid

Discover the diverse cultural influences, art, and architecture of the lively Spanish capital, Madrid. The mix of contemporary, 17th-century Baroque, and magnificent 18th-century Neoclassical styles found throughout the city will leave visitors in awe. Madrid has a myriad of museums to visit. Blue Parallel can arrange private access to the masterpieces at the famed Prado museum, such as “Las Meninas” by Diego Velazquez. For modern art lovers, the Reina Sofia Modern Art Museum is a must to see works such as Picasso’s “Guernica.” Thyssen Museum houses the important and formerly private collection of Baron Heinrich Thyssen Bornemisza. Another highlight includes the Royal Palace, the largest still used for state functions in all of Europe. In recent years, Madrid has become famous for its incredible gastronomic scene.
