Witness Spain's diverse cultural heritage on our one-week trip visiting Barcelona, Granada, Ronda, Seville, Córdoba, and Madrid. Highlights include a private flamenco performance, a horse-drawn carriage ride in Seville, and a guided tour of Madrid's Museo Nacional del Prado.

Fairy-tale sights While Spain imported many architectural styles - you'll see variations of North Africa's Moorish arcades in extravagant palaces, French Gothic and Romanesque arches dressing cathedrals, and columns and ornate detailing synonymous with Italian Renaissance and Baroque design in basilicas and plazas throughout the country. Spanish artists and architects made indelible marks with visions of their own. Antoni Gaudí i Cornet began the Modernism movement in Barcelona, surprising the world with wildly whimsical buildings. The works of Golden Age artist Velázquez and 18th-century painter Goya draw legions of visitors to Madrid's Prado Museum. And whitewashed Andalucían villages and flower-draped balconies in Seville never fail to inspire romance.

Day 2: Las Ramblas, la Sagrada Família & more in Barcelona
Discover Barcelona on a guided walking tour that takes you along the passageways of Las Ramblas, where cafés, restaurants and shops attract street performers and flower vendors. Continuing on to Barri Gòtic, the city's old Gothic quarter, you'll find narrow streets and squares dating back to the Middle Ages. Here at the city's 13th-century cathedral, sightseeing continues by coach for a drive through seaside Montjuic and past the 1992 Olympic Stadium, before your visit to Gaudí's whimsical Sagrada Família - referred to as "Art Nouveau run wild." The rest of the day is free for you to explore on your own, with much to see and do, from a stroll in Gaudí's flight of fancy in the mosaic-encrusted Parc Güell to sampling small plates of tapas in a cozy bar.
