Spain is a passionate land full of enticing beaches and yes, sangria and paella, flamenco dancers in gypsy caves and bullrings ripe with testosterone. Move away
from souvenir shops, fans and donkey to find a land that may suprise you: the green hills and valleys of the north; rugged mountain ranges to the south. Venture of the
beaten track and discover castles and medieval towns, white washed villages and
cosmopolitan city buzzing with life. Go skiing in the Sierra Nevadas. Go fishing for
cat fish in the river Elba.

often its own variety of paella.
