Spain

Our itineraries are structured to take in a diverse range of Spanish environments: from the Mediterranean coast, across the Meseta, through the mountain ranges and into the Basque country.  Through time, these varied landscapes have been inhabited by people with an equally diverse range of cultures, and the evidence of the former occupants is still visible within the modern populations and perceptible within the art and architecture of their cities and towns.

The archaeological sites, cities and towns selected for this tour provide a glimpse of the past through sites that include Neolithic dolmens, Celt-Iberian villages, Roman cities, Visigothic towns, Muslim cities and mosques, the castles of the Reconquista, Mudejar architecture and the Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance churches of the later periods.
