Two half-hour shows featuring:
Barcelona & Costa Brava, Spain: A Mediterranean marvel, Barcelona simmers with beautiful beaches, medieval mazes, eye popping art and hypnotic architecture. From tapas bars to surrealist art to Modernist structures, we’ll feast on Barcelona’s delights. Rambles along La Rambla, Gaudi’s treasures, a neighborhood festival, designer shopping, and waterfront fun are some of the highlights. For the best in beaches, we head north to the coves of the Costa Brava.
Tips on tapas and nightlife.
Madrid, Spain: The Spanish capital Madrid welcomes us with grand plazas and sparkling fountains. Madrid’s pride is the Prado, one of Europe’s great museums and home to Goya, El Greco, and Velázquez. We tour El Palacio Real, the seat of the Spanish empire, and the Monasterio de las Descalzas Reales, a fascinating hoard of art treasures hidden away in the center of the city. After dark, we sway to the rhythms of flamenco dancers and lose ourselves in Madrid’s pulsating nightlife. Then we day-trip to the imperial city of Toledo to roam the twisting streets and narrow alleyways of this historic center.
