Sunsets and Sangria
Begin your 10-day trip to Spain in the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region: Barcelona! Explore the city’s broad spectrum of architecture, from its medieval roots in the Gothic quarter to the modernist, almost fantastical church that is Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia. From there we move to the university town of Granada. Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, this youthful city not only has an incredible nightlife, but boasts amazing examples of medieval architecture that dates back to the Moorish occupation of Spain. The beaches of Tarifa/Cadiz will offer prime time for tanning or surfing before we spend one final night in another beautiful Moorish city: Sevilla! From sangria, to tapas, to winding cobblestoned streets, sprawling castles and warm Mediterranean beaches, Spain has so much to offer to the traveler. And compared to the rest of Europe, it’s incredibly affordable, making it an ideal backpacker destination. Ten days will go by in a flash, as you float from amazing cultural experiences like La Boqueria market, to tucked-away tapas bars and soaring cathedrals. So brush up on your Spanish, and welcome to Spain!
