A scenic walk through Spain’s history

History comes alive on this highly educational trip that takes us through the dramatic settings of Spain’s rise to glory in the 15th and 16th centuries. In landscapes both picturesque and wild, we follow trails that still bear witness to the events that dubbed Spain as one of the “empires on which the sun never sets.”

Highlights of the journey include explorations of rarely visited medieval cities, astonishing Roman monuments in Mérida, and the Renaissance architecture and twin cathedrals of Salamanca. Walk alongside popular trail guide, Peter Watson, stay in stunning paradors, and dine on delectable local cuisines: the world’s best ham in Extremadura, irresistible cherries from the Jerte valley, and the peppers and tomatoes of Castile.
