Discover the country that discovered a world.
Spain is different. Like its European neighbors, it boasts a rich history, splendid architecture, a love of fine food and good wine. But unlike its neighbors, Spain preserves strong influences from the Romans and the Moors. And that blending of cultures gives Spain a spice that sets it apart.
The people of Spain are descendants of adventure. A spark that inspired the taming of an empire. A spirit that lives on in the people's pride for where they've been, and their passion for where they're going.
From the Mediterranean to the Pyrenees. In creations like the cathedral La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, and museums like Museo del Prado in Madrid. In castles like the infamous San Jorge in Seville, and the stunningly Moorish palace and fortress complex of El Alhambra in Granada. There is where you'll find the heart of Spain.
As for its soul, look no further than the fire in a Flamenco dancer, the flavors of the tapas, and the friendliness of the Spanish people. Call VIVA Travel today. It's time you discovered Spain.
