Gay Group Trip: Discover Spain

Group Trip

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.

The following day we’ll explore Spain’s capital city. We’ll learn about Spain’s monarchy at the Prado Art Museum and visit Palacio Real, a royal palace with 2,500 rooms. This was the seat of the Spanish court in the days when the Spanish Empire was a superpower.

We’ll have tapas in San Miguel where a veritable banquet awaits. If you have a sweet tooth you’ll have to try the hot chocolate. It’s so thick you have to eat it with a spoon.

Toledo

Day 3: Touring Toledo

Toledo is just an hour’s drive away. A fortified town with a vast gothic cathedral, it’s a wonderful place to visit. We’ll see artworks by Titian and Ruben and gaze at hundreds of medieval stained glass windows.

Seville

Day 5 And 6: Seville

It’s a two-hour drive to the former capital of Andalusia, Seville. Some consider it to be Spain’s cultural capital today. It’s packed with stunning architecture. We’ll take an orientation tour of the Jewish Quarter and indulge in some bar hopping in the evening.
