Popular Wine Towns

Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlucar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa María form a triangle of generous land where the vine has reigned from time immemorial. The Sherry Triangle represents the only geographical location in the world where Sherry can legally be produced. It is also a place of exceptional beauty, beautiful beaches & Dancing Horses!

The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife is home to nearly a million people and just as many fun and unique travel experiences. The most popular attraction to see in Tenerife is Mount Teide, Spain`s tallest mountain, located inside Teide National Park, where many of the island`s native flora and fauna reside. Long popular with tourists, Tenerife is well-known for its Carnival de Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which is one of the largest in the world. Tenerife is great for a beach getaway and for sightseeing, as it is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

The Balearic Islands (Illes Balears in Catalan) consist of the four islands of Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera, all of which offer ideal warm year-round weather. Collectively they are the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, if not the world. Beautiful Mallorca boasts large, fine white-sand beaches; small, isolated, charming, crystal-clear coves; and a rich cultural history with castles, ruins, cathedrals, and more. Menorca, sitting to the northeast, is much smaller and has a cozier feel and a budding food-and-drink scene.

With its aristocratic charm, Jerez de la Frontera is a hidden gem of Spain, a must-see town should you venture beyond the large cities. The British made the town famous by taking the sweet wines made here and naming them "sherry" for the outside world. Once sitting on the border between the Christian and Moorish worlds, Jerez is also known for its fine horses and amazing singers and dancers of flamenco. Its magnificent dancing horses can be seen at the Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Art.

Lanzarote has been a desirable tourist destination for generations because of its warm weather year-round and also for the calmness of its waters, making it a great choice for families or for those who are interested in water sporting activities. The island as we know it today was borne from volcanic eruptions, and visitors can learn about these volcanoes at Timanfaya National Park, the only geology-specific national park in Spain. Lanzarote`s capital is the beautiful Arrecife, and popular resort towns include Puerto del Carmen, Costa Teguise, and Playa Blanca.

Gran Canaria`s capital city Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a cosmopolitan city surrounded by the sea in the far northeast of the island. Its Las Canteras beach, over three kilometres long, is one of its star attractions. Along with the Alfredo Kraus auditorium the beach area offers a wide range of accommodations, activities and restaurants. The city`s La Luz port does not just receive cruise ships but connects the city to the other Canary Islands.

La Gomera, the second-smallest of the main islands in Spain’s Canary Island chain, is marked by craggy volcanic mountains crisscrossed with hiking trails. In higher altitudes, dense forests of ferns and moss-covered trees grow in the mists of Garajonay National Park. Toward the coast, the Valle Gran Rey canyon leads past the whitewashed cliffside village of La Calera and ends at black-sand Atlantic beaches. From deep ravines to scraggy hilltops and breathtaking views, there is no shortage of trails to conquer on your trip.

The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is a beautiful destination that must be seen to be believed. The ecological diversity of the island is immense, from the wineries and mountains of the interior to the sandy beaches and turquoise waters of the coastal areas. Mallorca boasts a rich cultural history with castles and ruins, cathedrals and monasteries, grand manor houses and gardens, and a host of art galleries and museums.

On the shores of the Mediterranean, right on the Costa Daurada, lies the port city of Tarragona. The former Roman Tarraco offers an important legacy of monuments amid extensive beaches. Its archaeological remains include part of the bases of large Cyclopean walls near the Quartel de Pilatos which are thought to be anterior to the Romans. The Quartel, a prison in the 19th century, is said to have been the palace of Augustus.
