City-hop to the maximum with this eight-night getaway to three of sunny Spain’s most historically rich cities: Madrid, Seville, and Barcelona. Madrid, Seville, and Barcelona are historically and culturally diverse – each one sparkling in its own right and offering even the most seasoned of travelers a feast for the senses. Our triple center getaway will see you spend a handful of days in each, starting with magical Madrid.
Madrid is Spain’s capital and therefore a compelling center point for European art and culture. The halls of the Prado Museum are decked out with the works of Goya and Velasquez (a dream come true for art aficionados). And not to mention the Royal Palace, home to historic weaponry and the King of Spain, which is an absolute treat to behold. And Madrid’s culture doesn’t stop with the galleries and museums; it is full to the brim with trendy, unique neighborhoods like Malasana – dotted with vintage boutiques.
After spending three nights in Madrid you’ll be whisked off to Seville by internal flight. The capital of Andalusia, Seville is home to the sensational Alcazar castle complex, the 18th century Plaza de Toros and the Giralda bell tower – all abundantly historical and invitations for endless wandering.
Last but not least, you’ll stop off in Barcelona for two nights – swapping the Moorish marvel of the Alcazar castle complex for something just as impressive: Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia church. Aside from being blessed with Gaudi’s various modernist landmarks, Barcelona, “the cosmopolitan capital of Catalonia,” seduces visitors with its stunning Gothic Quarter, bustling Las Ramblas promenade and, of course, sparkling coastline.
