Here at Totally Spain, we have organised numerous custom trips for travelers interested in the history of the Jewish community in Spain & Portugal. In the company of one of our knowledgeable guides, it really is possible to peel back the layers and the centuries to find Jewish street names, Jewish architecture, the old Juderias or Jewish neighbourhoods, former synagogues and Jewish places of businesses that give a sense of how the Sephardi community lived, worked and worshipped before eviction from Spain in 1492.
With an over-whelming number of UNESCO-listed monuments and world-class museums in Spain to choose from, visitors always need help when selecting which to visit. Here at Totally Spain, we’ve been putting together custom itineraries since the year 2000 and share our shortlist of the 15 best museums and monuments in Spain…
Spurred on by the re-opening of the vertigo-inducing Caminito del Rey walking route complete with bridge, we’ve decided here at Totally Spain to pull together our favourite Spanish ‘puentes’ or bridges in Spain. We’ve got a bit of everything in here – Roman bridges, foot bridges, hanging bridges, toll bridges, bridges designed by starchitects and bridges that just have great personality or meaning. Some we’ve crossed this year – others we’re not sure we’ll ever cross (would that be the Caminito??) but they are all spectacular in their own special way.
Nothing says holidays more than a car, a suitcase, sunglasses, and the open road. And here in Spain, we have a wonderful road infrastructure including shiny new three-lane highways that get you out of the cities plus plenty of those romantic rural roads that snake around the mountain ridges and coastal cliffs when you want them too. We know these driving routes in Spain because we are a Spain-based travel agent. Here at Totally Spain we have been designing itineraries in Spain since 2000 and we love the open road as much as you do!
Are you interested in gardening and keen to visit some gardens in Spain? You’d better strap yourself in then, because we’ve put together the perfect guide to planning your green-fingered trip to Spain. Each of our gardens is very different – as a result of its location, climate or history. In Andalusia, you’ll find the Moorish influenced courtyards and gardens with in-built irrigation canals and water features. In Madrid, you’ll find a very different offering with a more regal tone. And in Catalonia? You’ll see some Gaudi creativity and some Costa Blanca views to die for! Here at Totally Spain – the Spain based travel agent and specialists in custom travel to Spain since 2000 – we never cease to be inspired by these amazing gardens. Take a look for yourself and pick your must-see gardens in Spain.
