This week the Travel Show is living the good life in Madrid and Barcelona. No European country embraces every waking minute quite like Spain! Spain offers incredible art and culture and in Madrid, the works of Spanish masters like Picasso, Dali, and Goya hang with distinction in world-class galleries. Madrid is now a culinary capital of Europe, having emerged from a gastronomic revolution embracing the old and the new. In Barcelona, stroll the cobblestone lanes of the Gothic quarter discovering centuries-old cathedrals, and the Modernist architecture of Antoni Gaudi. And make your way to one of Barcelona’s Basque-style tapas bars or seafood taverns overlooking the Mediterranean. Enjoy endless tax-free shopping in both Spanish cities – and bring along an empty suitcase for the many designer fashions you’ll be taking home. And the nightlife in Madrid and Barcelona is legendary!
