showcase : Spain

Land of tapas, flamenco and hedonistic fiestas, Spain embodies a compelling range of landscapes, cultures and styles. From the lush green pastures of the Atlantic-facing north to sun-parched white-towns and olive groves further south, the wild forests and meadows of the interior to the crowded tourist costas. Its architecture boasts such gems as Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, the breathtaking Guggenheim in Bilbao and the Moorish palaces of Andalucia which tell of the country’s historical ties to nearby North Africa.
