Barcelona is the city by the sea and with amazing beaches to relax on or enjoy any type of water sport, as many are available. The country has a myriad of sites to see with architecture that dates back to the Renaissance period. Hundreds of years of history are present wherever one goes like the Royal Palace and Montserrat. The Magic Fountain of Montjuic combines colours, light, motion and music to present quite a display of water acrobatics. Seville has quaint horse and carriage tours of the city where guests are treated to such sites as the monument to the famous soldier El Cid and the elaborate President’s House. The area is famous for great food and wine.
A tour of Madrid features numerous museums, historic landmarks, art galleries and gardens. The Prado museum houses works by famous artists Boticelli and Rembrandt. The Royal Palace was construction in the 1700’s and contains 3000 rooms. Daily tours are available though royalty continues to reside here. Granada is home to the Alhambra, the red castle from the 14th century with beautiful courtyards, gardens and fountains. When the Moors built the castle they devised a way to bring large amounts of water down from the mountains. This ensured water in the palace and gardens as well as protection against attacks. The running water is a soothing aspect of the gardens that was enjoyed by the Moors and by visitors today.
