Nearly two centuries ago, the great German poet Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe, full of admiration, described Spain as ‘the lovely land of wine and song’.

And in the 17th century Gaspar de Guzmán, the historic Count-Duke of Olivares, asserted that ‘God is Spanish and fights for our nation’, aware of the privileged nature of this land its inhabitants. How can anyone resist the charms of this real Spain?

And in Alicante, José Martínez Ruiz, “Azorín”, told us ‘Whether large or small, every Spanish town has a lesson’, underlining the inexhaustible wisdom of a generous, honest and hard-working people, who nevertheless are always ready to stop and share the finest pleasures in life.

Spain is a way of life. Come with In Travel to experience the passion and the fun of your personalised holiday in Spain.

In Travel will help you organise a personalised holiday in Spain to suit your interests. In your custom tour of Spain, don’t forget that this is the land of fiesta, the traditional festivals that bring crowds together for riotous fun, noise, music and shared enjoyment in streets and squares.

Simply mentioning the most famous Spanish fiestas evokes the most pleasurable experiences recalled such illustrious figures as the American writer Ernest Hemingway, the film director Orson Welles and the actress Ava Gardner. All the great names who have lived their lives to the full have enjoyed and celebrated the fiestas of Spain.

Any self-respecting globetrotter has seen, or plans to see, the Fiestas of San Fermín in Pamplona, and the world-famous Running of the Bulls.

And who hasn’t heard of the Tomatina in Buñol (Valencia), a cathartic experience for the masses, drawing visitors from every continent.

You can also choose to organise your personalised trip to Spain with In Travel to have fun at the Fallas of Valencia, a festival of fireworks, bonfires and passion; the Moors and Christians of Alcoy (Alicante); the Feria de Abril in Seville; the springtime festivals of Patios and Crosses in Cordoba, in the heart of Andalusia; the passionate, crowded and colourful Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the Canary Islands; the bullfighting festival of San Isidro, in Madrid, and many other traditional fiestas all year round, in every part of Spain.

The most authentic and representative way to experience the cuisine, lifestyle and friendly character of the Spanish people is the ritual of tapas and pinchos, sampling something in every bar, accompanied by the finest wines, the most refreshing beers, and the spontaneous conversations and collective debates which are part of the local culture.

Tapas are miniature culinary delights to be eaten on a circuit of bars and restaurants, enjoying the cheerful atmosphere and the excellent quality of these handmade bites of Spanish cuisine, and the wines which accompany them.

Thanks to tapas, your personalised tourist route in Spain will enable you to sample a wide range of dishes, whether natural, simple and traditional or innovative and refined, in a single meal, and always surrounded by a friendly atmosphere and conversation.

Tapas in Spain are not merely a way to eat or a kind of sampling menu. Tapas are a way of life, and a way to share and enjoy friendship and neighbourliness.

The culture of bullfighting is a deeply rooted tradition which forms an essential part of the identity and history of Spain.

Your personalised tour of Spain with In Travel will always include attending a top-level bullfight.

The first signs of the art and culture of bullfighting in Spain are found before the arrival of the Roman Empire, although the bullfights we know today originated in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today, for example, we can admire bullfights in the monumental bullrings of the Real Maestranza de Caballería in Seville and the Real Maestranza de Caballería in Ronda, both built in the 18th century.

Bullfights and their related festivities can be found almost everywhere in Spain. Many of the traditional Spanish fiestas are associated with cycles of bullfights with matadors performing on foot or on horseback.

The bullfighting ferias of Madrid, held every May in the Plaza de Toros de las Ventas, are particularly prestigious, as is the Feria de Abril in Seville, with a select programme of bullfights full of art, aesthetic, liturgy and tradition. The Ferias of Valencia, Zaragoza and Bilbao are also notable, and there are many more.

Consult In Travel and include a bullfight in your personalised holiday tour of Spain.

Flamenco is one of the forms of artistic and popular expression most identified with the culture of Spain, its philosophy, its ancestral wisdom and its approach to life.

Flamenco is improvisation, art, passion, spontaneity, harmony, balance, beauty, talent, joy, celebration, sadness, melancholy, pain, feeling and emotion, experienced with total intensity.

The art of Flamenco has been declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) and can be found nearly everywhere in our country, although its thousand-year-old origins are rooted in Andalusia and the southern Iberian Peninsula.

The art of Flamenco is also song, poetry, dance, Spanish guitar, life and inspiration.

Your personalised tour of Spain with In Travel will not be complete without a chance to enjoy a Flamenco performance, whether in a tablao, a theatre, a fiesta, or outdoors.

It would be impossible to include all the iconic destinations in a single personalised tourist route through Spain, however long it might be.
