Join us to travel through some of the most scenic, beautiful, and historically significant routes in Spain. Come prepared to explore and discover. We start in Madrid, discovering the essence of this vibrant world capital and seat of the 17th century Spanish Empire. Boulevards, plazas, unique shopping, world-class museums and sites, and exquisite wining and dining, make Madrid a magnet for the ambitious, inquisitive, wandering, hungry and thirsty adventurer.
From there, we travel to Roman and medieval Segovia and Plasencia. Segovia is famous for its aqueduct and medieval quarter, both Christian and Jewish; Plasencia, for its medieval Jewish Quarter. Then, we´re off to Toledo, the capital of Visigothic; and, from there, Christian Spain. Our route will take us meandering through the immense old quarter. Afterwards, we’ll venture out on Don Quixote’s routes, as we tilt at windmills, sip wine, and devour Manchego cheese and cured ham at the same inns Miguel de Cervantes visited. We will follow the Enotourism route in Almagro and Valdepeñas.
Oropesa and Cuenca are next, as we continue following the routes of Don Quixote. In cliff-hanging Cuenca we’ll marvel at breathtaking views and visit the extraordinary contemporary art museum. Then, our routes take us to Zaragoza and Tudela as we explore the bastions of the Catholic Monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabella, as well as the route of Spanish Jewry.
From Tudela, we travel to Barcelona, the shining star in the Spanish universe. We’ll go up and under the city and environs to follow the routes of Roman, medieval, and modernist art and architecture.
