Spanish Fiesta (ZX)

14 days from Madrid to Madrid

2021 Tour Details View 2022 Tour Details »

Originally chanted at the toreros during bullfights, “Olé!” is now a term used to congratulate anyone’s exceptional performance in sunny and live-in-the-moment Spain. Prepare for those two happy syllables to roll off your tongue as you discover the past and modern-day feats of everyone from artists and architects to chefs and winemakers throughout this lively tour of Spain. Our most in-depth look at the land of the nonstop fiesta, this 14-day tour leads you from city to city and coast to coast for Picasso and paella, fortresses and flamenco, and Gaudi and the great Rioja wines. Equally satisfying is seeing the legendary backdrops used for some of classic literature’s finest prose—from Granada’s Moorish Alhambra complex to Pamplona’s famous Calle Estafeta, the famous street where the annual “running of the bulls” takes place. Olé!

 Tour Director

With GLOBUS, there’s no better way to get to know your destination than through the eyes of a Tour Director. We’d like you to meet one of our Tour Directors, who average over a decade of experience and are representative of the type of expert that will be with you on your vacation.

BEATRIZ FERNANDES

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

I was born a wanderer and I decided very early that travel will be not just a dream but my life plan. For me happiness is not a destination but the journey itself, so the best thing in life other than planning a new trip, is to make it happen for the guests. I love history, art, food and wine, trekking, photography, reading, street art, but more than anything to create new memories.
