GLOBUS 2017: Spanish Fiesta (ZX)
14 days from Madrid to Madrid
This vacation is perfect for those who wish to experience all the excitement and energy of Spain. You'll visit Spain's most popular cities, including Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Granada, Vitoria, Pamplona, and Seville. You'll have time to relax on the Costa del Sol, where you can sample traditional Spanish cuisine, walk on the sandy beaches, and browse the trendy boutiques. You'll also visit the Rock of Gibraltar, in British hands since 1704.

On this Spain tour, history fans will enjoy visiting the magnificent Casa de Pilatos in Seville, with its splendid collection of Roman sculptures; the 8th-century Mosque of the Caliphs in Cordoba, a very well-preserved mosque that was converted into a cathedral in the 13th century; and the Alhambra Complex in Granada. The Alhambra was a palace, citadel, and fortress for the Nasrid sultans and their servants, elite soldiers, and high officials from the 13th to 14th centuries. Fans of art and architecture will delight in seeing the Prado Museum in Madrid, one of the world's finest art museums; the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, an amazing feat of construction without any flat surfaces; and the Sagrada Familia Basilica, Gaudi's masterpiece in Barcelona.

Globus has also arranged special experiences for you on this Spain tour. For example, enjoy wine tasting accompanied by tapas in Ribera del Duero. A special treat is a walk along the street where the famous "running of the bulls" takes place, followed by a Rioja wine tasting and dinner at a local restaurant in Pamplona.

History, art, architecture, beaches, Spanish food, and more-what more could you ask for in a vacation to Spain?
