You may think of Spain as the country of flamenco dancers and bullfights, siestas and sangria, a slow-paced place filled with sun-kissed, smiling people. It is all this and much more! Spain is a country with a unique blend of old and new. A diverse country in both landscape and culture, Spain boasts seventeen distinct regions and its people speak five different languages. Madrid, Spain’s capital city, is an exciting international hub with plenty of activities to educate and entertain. The city is home to several famous museums – with one of the best painting collection of the world – and is one hour by bus from plenty of historical sites like Toledo, Segovia, and El Escorial.
