Rich in history, Spain’s art, architecture, and culture will amaze you. The birthplace of some of the world’s most influential artists, including Pablo Picasso and Manolo, travel to Spain to live amongst some of the world’s most treasured art. From the ancient Roman ruins, to the flamenco dancers and matadors, to the gothic cathedrals overlooking the streets, and even to its captivating mountain ranges, Spain captures the true essence of traveler’s journey overseas.

Experience the true beauty and history behind some of the most admired art in the world. When you intern abroad in Barcelona, you can visit the Museum Marítum, where a large collection of art represents how Barcelona’s history is connected to the sea. While in Madrid, see one of the most famous art pieces in the world, Pablo Picasso’s La Guernica, which depicts the horrors of the Spanish Civil War. As the local gallery scene within Seville is growing, one of its most popular galleries is the Wabi Sabi Shop Gallery. There you can find more than just paintings, home to all types of contemporary art, including fashion to décor, to furniture or handmade ceramics. If you’re looking for classical art, then Granada is the place to be. Visit the Museum of Fine Arts, which houses over 2,000 pieces, including works of art from Alonzo Cano, who designed the façade of Granada’s cathedral. Granada’s star attraction though, is a piece of art in itself and is one of the most iconic sights, the Alhambra. This sprawling complex sits on the Darro Valley, with the Sierra Nevada Mountains as its backdrop.

With a history dating all the way back to the to the Middle Ages and even to the Roman Empire, Spain’s historic sites will transport you to another time. Have an unforgettable experience in The Roman Theatre of Mérida where the ancient Romans enjoyed theatrical games. Visit an icon of Spain’s history and traditions in Seville, the Plaza de Toro, thought to be one of the finest bull rings in all of Spain. Built between 1762 and 1881 this popular site still holds fights to this day allowing you to admire its architecture while experiencing the tradition of a bull fight. Travel back to medieval times and visit the towering cathedral La Sagrada Família, 137 years later and still unfinished, this beautiful cathedral is Spanish history you must experience.

Spain Points of Interest

Spain Points of Interest

  • Calle San Francisco Calle San Francisco in Alicante, known by the locals as Calle de las Setas, Mercado Central, and the streets around the Alicante Theater are favorite local spots to enjoy tapas and drinks with friends.
  • Labyrinth Park in Horta The Labyrinth Park is Barcelona’s oldest park, and since it's located outside of the tourist radius, it's something of an undiscovered treasure. Inside the neoclassical garden, you’ll find an 820-yard-long labyrinth that gives the park its name. Navigate the maze to find Eros —the god of love—at its center.
  • Circulo de Bellas Artes Want to see the Madrid skyline from its best angle? Then head to the Círculo de Bellas Artes in the center of the city. Along with its amazing views, there’s a cafeteria/restaurant where you can have a drink and some snacks while enjoying the scenery. Círculo de Bellas Artes offers jazz concerns, art exhibitions, and a film series throughout the year.
  • Sierra Nevada Natural Park The ski resort of Sierra Nevada, Spain’s highest mountain range, is just half an hour from Granada. A paradise for mountain sports, the resort offers over 62 miles of slopes and more sunny days per year than any other European ski destination. It is the perfect place to practice all your favorite winter sports, including beautiful routes for walking, hiking, and trekking.
