More About Spain

Located in Western Europe, our guided tours of Spain explore the continent's fourth largest country, boasting a 5,000 km coastline, which touches the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Bay of Biscay.

Historically, whether you believe Spain's name derived from the Pharaoh's regarding to the area as 'the land that forged metals' or that it derives from the Greek's poetic use of the term Hesperia, meaning "land of the setting sun", there is little doubt that Spain has an interesting past.

To embark on one of our guided tours of Spain, is to realize the significance this country has imparted on the world. Once the head of the Spanish Empire, Spain was responsible for the funding of Christopher Columbus' voyage to the New World. As Columbus crossed the Atlantic, he would begin European expansion and in turn Spain would emerge as the first truly global power.

Despite Spain at the time being an area ruled by separate kingdoms, each with their own culture, language, laws and currency, during the Spanish Empire's conquest of foreign soils it amassed large wealth through colonies in the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Northern Africa and parts of Europe.

It was during this time that Spain had a golden age, a near century and a half where art, music and literature flourished. In the north of the country our guided tours of Spain include visits to the Prado, which houses all the finest works collected by Spanish royalty including Velasquez, Goya, Ribera, El Greco and Zurbaran.

Before Spain became the Spanish Empire, another impressive empire claimed its land on the Iberian Peninsula. The Moors. With legacies ranging from subtle to over the top, the Moorish Muslims conquered Iberia in 711 and held on to territories until 1492. Masterpieces such as the Alhambra Palace in Granada, the Great Mosque of Cordoba, and the Moorish Alcazar Palace in Seville are some of the finest examples of Islamic architecture. All built within the 781 occupation of Spain, each site has a particular specialty.

The Great Mosque of Cordoba was created in the 10th century after being rebuilt on a site that was used by the Romans in the 2nd century. The Alhambra was originally built as a fortress but became a red brick palace sprawling over a million square feet in size. The Alcazar in Seville is so ornate and intricate in its architecture, it remains a Royal Palace to this day. All three of these Moorish sites are visited on our Spain tours.

Spain is often associated with the spread of Christianity, and within the country many spectacular places of worship exist. From the end of the pilgrimage at Santiago de Compostela to the yet to be completed gargantuan Le Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, there is a church or cathedral in nearly every town we visit on our guided tours of Spain. One can easily appreciate the passion of the artists involved in creating these important symbols.

Tours to Spain, whether on a Northern Spain tour or Southern Spain tour are a spectacular insight to a civilization that influenced a large portion of the world. Join us on a tour across the plains, plateaus and mountain ranges of Spain as we enjoy a tapa or two as well as some delicious Spanish wine.
