Sun, sea and sand; from the ever-popular Costa del Sol, to its engaging islands in the Balearics and Canaries, it can sometimes seem as though Spain must surely have invented modern tourism. Culturally varied, you could spend a lifetime trying to experience every facet of life here. The food and wine is the equal of anything you will find in Europe but its long and vibrant history – embracing kings and queens, artists, great wars and even great explorers - sets Spain apart.
