Spain used to be a cluster of different kingdoms — Aragon and Catalonia, Valencia, Castilla — each with its own language, culture, heritage and royal family.

A lot of artists and entrepreneurs come from there as opposed to other regions that are more agricultural. Barcelona, Catalonia's enchanted city, is often referred to as Paris with palm trees.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to let your senses be enticed by the melodies of classical guitar, rhythms of flamenco dance, aromas of saffron and spice, and taste of world-class bubbly.
