Spain: Diversity & Heritage
It’s hard to settle on what exactly makes Spain such an enduringly popular destination in Europe. From the relaxed attitude and long siesta to the flamboyant national dress: the nocturnal nightlife, passionate Flamenco and varied regional cuisine… perhaps it’s the alluring mishmash of it all.
Located at the western end of the Mediterranean Sea, Spain is a diverse country on the Iberian Peninsula. With huge geographical and cultural diversity, it has the largest number of World Heritage Cities and the second most World Heritage Sites in the world. From snowy mountains in the northeast to deserts and marshes in the south, the pristine Costa Blanca and rugged Costa Brava and the world-famous Balearics and Canaries: this is one country with many personalities. In the effervescent capital city Madrid, explore awe-inspiring museums and ancient architecture in the day, and indulge in fine dining and vibrant nightlife after dark. Barcelona, Spain's second city is a cosmopolitan hub, with a beautiful coastal area, vibrant cultural scene and intriguing mix of classic and contemporary architecture. Valencia is the hotspot for those who want to soak up the race scene and the Balearic Islands rank among Europe’s most popular cruising grounds.
