Spain Tourism

Spain, or Espana – as the Spanish call their charming country – forms the better part of the Iberian Peninsula. Spain means many things to many people. Bloody bullfights, the swirl of the skirt of a Flamenco dancer, exploring Don Quixote countryside, sunbathing on the pristine beaches of Marbella, a visit to the majestic Alhambra or just feasting on paella at a roadside tavern – this is sunny Spain where there is no pain and only gain!

From the rolling hills and olive trees of Andalusia to the astounding architecture of Barcelona, all the way to the Museum Mile and carnival madness of Madrid, Spain is one great land of fun and frolic. It has great art, greater architecture, wild nightlife, sultry weather and so much more – Savour Spain’s medieval delights in the modern day scenario.

Fortunately, in the rush towards development and modernization, the Spaniards haven’t tossed aside their zest for the good life or their endless energy for celebrating. Welcome to the land of flamenco and fiesta…

Contrary to popular belief Tapas is not a type of food but a way of eating it. Tapa actually means cover and was conventionally a slice of cheese or ham placed over a drink.

In Spain there is a tradition to eat twelve grapes at the stroke of midnight on New Years Eve. It is believed that whoever would eat the ‘lucky grapes’ will enjoy good fortune for the rest of the year. Each grape represents a month of the year.

The Spanish flag is two red stripes and a yellow stripe in the middle with the Spanish coat of arms on the yellow stripe. Legend has it that the yellow stands for the sand of the bullfighting arena and the red represent the bull’s blood.
