Spain is a land where time seems to stand still. It has some of Europe's best cities. Barcelona, Bilbao, Madrid, Sevilla, Granada, Cordoba, San Sebastian, Santiago de Compostela, Valencia – all appeal to different people for different reasons. It has both the best international and club sides in football. It is the home of Don Quixote, of mountains and plains, of deserts and beaches, volcanoes, castles, pilgrimages and more.

The Canary and Balearic Islands and the mainland coast soak up the package tourists while the interior offers much variety and intrigue, from the Alhambra to the Basque Country to the joy and sadness of seeing a Picasso painting.
