MADRID

No city on earth is more alive than Madrid, and when we come back we will bring a message with us: “this city is one of the cities witch really knows how to live”.

Madrid is a city that becomes truly great once you get to know its unique barrios. There you’ll discover that Madrid is an idea, a diverse city whose contradictory impulses are legion. Spain’s capital is a wonderful city year-round, but you’ll especially appreciate being here when the weather’s warm and the kaleidoscopic variety of life Madrid-style courses through the streets or takes up residence in the city’s plazas.


Madrid’s calling cards are many: astonishing art galleries, relentless nightlife, its transformation into Spain’s premier style city, an exceptional live music scene, a feast of fine restaurants and tapas bars, and a population that’s mastered the art of living the good life. It’s not that other cities don’t have some of these things. It’s just that Madrid has all of them in bucketloads.

Introducing Mallorca

In 1950 the first charter flight landed on a small airstrip on Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands (3640 sq km). The number of annual visitors today hovers around 10 million – most in search of the three S’s: Sun, Sand and Sea, and swamping the local island populace of some 781, 600 people (nearly half of whom live in the capital, Palma de Mallorca).

However, there’s much more to Mallorca than the beach. Palma de Mallorca (or simply Palma) is the main centre and a charming stop. The northwest coast, dominated by the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, is a beautiful region of olive groves, pine forests and ochre villages, with a spectacularly rugged coastline.

Most of Mallorca’s best beaches are on the north and east coasts and, although many have been swallowed up by tourist developments, you can still find the occasional exception. There is also a scattering of fine beaches along parts of the south coast.

Introducing Pamplona

Pamplona (Basque: Iruña), capital of the fiercely independent Navarra, can seem a touch austere at times, partly because of the dark stonework of its older buildings and partly because of a lingering reputation for Navarran reactionary politics. Yet Pamplona is the home of Los Sanfermines (Fiesta de San Fermín) one of the most riotous and extreme festivals in Europe. At the heart of the festival is El Encierro, the Running of the Bulls, an activity that many other countries would have banned years ago because of the perceived cruelty to animals and danger to people.


All this apart, Pamplona is fascinating at any time. Pamplona’s bars and restaurants have a growing reputation for superb pintxos (little sandwiches), and a healthy Basque culture among young people enlivens things.

Introducing Valencia

In 2005 more than five million visitors chose Valencia as their holiday destination. Most of them prefer the resorts of the coast, each of those resorts have everything what you need! Others visitors like to go for walking around the city, or rent a bike for may be a couple of hours and ride around the main places.

Valencia history has been shaped as much by Catalonia, it’s neighbor to the north, that is why the flag is red and yellow, and the language dialect is Valenciano, a dialect of Catalan


To the north, along the coast, you will find lot of resorts plus the historic place of Sagunto. To the south we have some of the finest beaches of Spain, Benidorm, Torrevieja, Denia Gandia. Also we will find amazing castles and some constructions from the medieval times; Morella, Elche and Xativa.

 Introducing Santiago de Compostela

There can be few cities in the world as beautiful as Santiago. The corpse of Santiago Apóstol (St James), was transported in a stone boat from the Holy Land to the far side of Spain by two disciples after his execution in Jerusalem in AD 44.

In 813 the grave was supposedly rediscovered by a religious following a guiding star. The saint’s purported grave became a welcome rally‑ing symbol for Christian Spain, the Asturian king Alfonso II turned up to have a church erected above the holy remains, pilgrims began flocking to it and the rest is history.

The city has only improved with age and various architectural additions down the centuries. Apart from the undisputed splendour of its gold-tinged monuments and the charm of its medieval streets, Santiago de Compostela is today a very lively city with a huge summer contingent of international pilgrims and tourists, and during college term a student population of up to 40, 000. There’s a great entertainment and nightlife scene to tap into at the end of a day investigating the city’s history and culture.
