CULTURAL GEMS

It’s Spain’s diverse tapestry of different civilizations and their respective cultures that have left a lasting imprint on Spain. The history of the Phoenicians as trade merchants along the Mediterranean coastal towns and Moors who settled primarily in Andalucía for over 700 years is not only visible in the architectural styles of their historical buildings but also in its regional cuisine.Of course we cannot forget the master painters who left their mark on Spain…Velazquez, Goya, El Greco, Miro, Picasso, and Dalí are just a few of the celebrated and world famous artists. Albéniz, Rodrigo and Segovia composed some of the most famous classical musical notes of Spain’s history or famous arias sung by María Callas. But we cannot ignore some of the great modern guitarist composers like Paco de Lucía and Tomatito and Spain’s favorite flamenco singer Camarón de la Isla.We invite you to explore with us the cultural nuance Spain offers with its genuine hospitality.
