In Spain you might find yourself strolling through the world-famous Guggenheim or Prado Museums…or down the streets of Pamplona, the “City of Bulls.” Visit the Mosque of the Caliphs in Cordoba and Granada’s Water Gardens of the Generalife, pay respects at the tomb of Columbus, and marvel at Gaudi’s extraordinary La Sagrada Familia cathedral…or maybe soak in the sun on the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol, savor the views from the Rock of Gibraltar, or light a candle and join the procession of pilgrims in Fatima.
