An Array of Culture
The spectacular Alhambra in the southern city of Granada is an incredible day’s exploration but also a lovely backdrop for dinner at any of a number of outdoor restaurants that line the hillside across from its western façade.
Flamenco is a passionate form of expression, whether it’s dance, singing or guitar. Partake of an evening of flamenco and you’ll get a glimpse into the soul of Spain.
One of Spain’s finest cured hams is Jamon Iberico Bellota, which comes from acorn-fed pigs in the forests of southwestern Spain. Penicillin roqueforti, the bacteria that gifts us with fabulous Roquefort cheese gives this ham a luscious flavor unique among the famous hams of Europe.
You may recognize Seville’s Plaza de España from Lawrence of Arabia or the more recent Star Wars movie, Attack of the Clones, but this is no mere movie set! While the building houses governmental functions, the plaza is a popular spot for walking, paddling in the canal and taking selfies. It’s situated next to Maria Luisa Park, where you can picnic, bike or go for a carriage ride.
