All things Spanish may be taking the world by storm, but it’s only in Madrid and Barcelona that you’ll most certainly find the laboratory of español wow factor! Thanks to our twin-centre, travelling to Spain has never been more enjoyable, with 4 star hotels, flights and train rides this journey will take you to two gems of Lord Byron's “renowned and romantic land.” Barcelona is the Catalonia city that is in demand by everyone; from Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali to Lionel Messi and Penelope Cruz. According to Lonely Planet, “This enchanting seaside city boasts boundless culture, fabled architecture and a world-class drinking and dining scene.” The formerly grimy industrial port has been transformed into one of the world’s most beautiful cities where gleaming spires, miles of beaches and UNSECO contemporary masterpieces blend with gothic palaces and plazas all conspire to make this one of our favourite city-break destinations.
