This gay group trip will show you the cultural riches of Spain. It’s a fascinating country with a long, turbulent history. It was an outpost of the Roman Empire. After the fall of Rome, it was partly conquered by the Moors and occupied for almost 800 years. Moorish Spain was known as al-Andalus. The northern part of the country was under Catholic rule.

In 1492 the Moors were expelled and Spain emerged as a global superpower. It conquered much of the Americas, laying the foundations for Latin America. Spain’s culture and language have therefore spread throughout the world. You’ll discover its fascinating architecture, food, art and more as you explore the country with like-minded travellers.
