There are many clichés associated with Spain - the sun-drenched beaches, the passion of flamenco, the spectacle of the bullfight, the mournful intensity of the “fado” – and whilst these images are true the Iberian Peninsular offers so much more!
Spain is both spectacular and diverse, intensely regionalist yet fiercely held together by a passion for drama, contrast and a noisy, live-for-today hedonism. With extensively developed regions, each with a tremendous history, reflected in everything from prehistoric cave paintings, Roman ruins, Moorish palaces, imposing medieval castles, Gothic cathedrals and Renaissance masterpieces. This rich heritage is proudly embraced and combines with an infectious, go-ahead dynamism. Although well travelled, Spain's contemporary avant-garde chefs, designers and architects have unleashed a formidable wave of uninhibited innovation to make this destination amongst the most exciting countries in Europe.
