Price from: 1460.00 euros
Explore Green Spain starting in Galicia`s capital Santiago de Compostela and ending in the Basque city of Bilbao, home of the famous Guggenheim Museum.
On this self-drive tour you will experience the charm of Northern Spain´s Paradores and savor the fine wines and cuisine of each region you visit...Galicia, Castilla y Leon, Asturias, and the Basque Country.
The landscapes of these Rias Baixas form broad areas of sand. Temperatures are mild a large part of the year. The rainy season would be autumn and winter, causing the greenness of Galicia, and that travelers see when they first arrive. The richness of these landscapes is complemented by the wide range of products of the sea or land, fish, shellfish and wines that delight any food-liver.
Also, Rías Baixas is the place to be for art lovers who will find many interesting places full of cultural value to stop: fortresses, Romanic, gothic and baroque churches, manors and magnificent museums.
Furthermore, Galicia is known for the festivals and processions throughout the year, particularly in the summer, which will allow visitors to really immerse into the traditions and beliefs of this land
Cantabria, also part of Green Spain, is also a place full of beautiful scenery, excellent gastronomy and unique heritage. This northern region boasts a complex of 10 prehistoric caves, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2008, including Altamira, the renowned “Sistine Chapel” of cave paintings.
Its towns and villages contain a large number of beautiful monuments such as the Magdalena Palace in Santander or Gaudí’s “Capricho” house in Comillas. Further inland no one should miss visiting the Picos de Europa National Park.
This trip will end in Bilbao, in the Basque Country. Euskal Herria (‘the land of Basque Speakers’), how they call it, is a place like no other, with a pre-romanesque language and with its own culture.
