Cadiz is known locally as ‘la tacita de plata’, literally the little silver cup, because it is surrounded by the waters of the Atlantic and Mediterranean. Its privileged location means that the light in Cadiz is very special. Its beaches are stunning and its streets surprising. There’s also its history- you’ll meet Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs - and the city has a wealth of riches. It was named Gádir by the Phoenicians, meaning ‘fortress’, which tells us why the city was built. It focussed on trade, but at the same time, provided protection. As you walk around, you’ll be seduced by this Andalusian city, and you’ll fall in love with it from the very first moment you see it.leer artículo completo

The streets of Roma are paved with sampietrini, cobbles which get their name because they come from the same source which produced the materials used in St Peter's in the Vatican. Nowadays, they may seem out of place, but they are part of Rome's character. For the same reason, the historic centre still keeps the charm of its ochre façades and its bougainvillea-covered walls unchanged.leer artículo completo

It's hard to find a city in Spain which has more history than Toledo, a World Heritage City since 1986. Raised up on a rocky outcrop and almost surrounded by a loop of the River Tagus, its narrow streets form a labyrinth, and each street is a history lesson. You'll travel in time, back to the city's glory days, when Christians, Arabs and Jews lived side-by-side, and Toledo was considered the cultural capital of Medieval Europe. And, of course, there is the ascetic aura of one of its most illustrious inhabitants - El Greco.leer artículo completo

Over the centuries, there has been a succession of kings, revolutionaries, worker and visionaries who have gradually transformed the city into the perfect travel destination it now is.
