Barcelona is a city of astonishing architecture but its crowning glory is the Sagrada Familia, Antoni Gaudí’s famously unfinished Roman Catholic church.

The city of Granada is situated in Andalusia, and is home to some of the finest examples of Moorish architecture in the country, the most spectacular of which is the Alhambra. Visit this vast hilltop fortress and palace and explore its astonishingly beautiful corridors, rooms, and courtyards, where traditional Islamic design – characterised by precise geometry – dominates.
Menorca is famed for its tranquil atmosphere, whitewashed villages, and stunning sandy beaches. Take a holiday here and you can spend your days moving from one quiet cove to the next, to lounge on white sands and swim in turquoise waters. Menorca is also a hotspot for sailing, snorkelling, and diving.
Tenerife may be famed for its gorgeous beach resorts, but a holiday here wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Teide National Park.
