SPAIN: A PREMIUM ADVENTURE Multicultural, tolerant, open and safe, Spain is ready to host corporate and incentive visitors. This is a magical place where avant-garde thinking thrives alongside centuries-old tradition. Warm and Friendly Spain is a sunny, welcoming destination where you can feel alegría de vivir everywhere—from coastal resorts and mountain villages to the key urban centres: Seville, Málaga, Madrid, San Sebastián, Bilbao, Barcelona and Valencia. Exclusive Access Want to sleep in a castle, dine in a Michelin- starred restaurant or host a private cocktail reception in a volcanic cave? Many of Spain's signature experiences are available exclusively for personalized visits. Unique culture Imagine the passion and excitement of a flamenco performance at an authentic tablao (flamenco club). Spain is the birthplace of influential artists such as Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. The cultural history is so rich that UNESCO has recognized 11 festivals and cultural events as Intangible Cultural Heritage. Outstanding accommodations Spain offers a vast selection of 4- and 5-star accommodations, including the Parador Network— over 90 hotels situated in refurbished castles, medieval monasteries and royal palaces. Enjoy a luxurious night in a country manor, modernist mansion or even a cave in southern Spain that has been comfortably outfitted for overnight stays. WHY SPAIN? Iconic places Many unique venues are available for private tours and events. Enjoy a tailored visit through a world-class museum or art gallery followed by an on-site cocktail reception or gala dinner. Superb gastronomy The whole world is familiar with Spain's fine wines, olive oils, Iberian ham and Mediterranean diet as well as signature dishes such as Valencian paella, Madrid's cocido (stew) and tapas/ pintxos—the delightfully creative appetizers offered in bars, restaurants and gourmet markets. Did you know that Spain boasts more than 200 Michelin-starred restaurants? Discovery and Adventure Groups can enjoy a wide array of experiences: private art, cooking or Spanish lessons; winemaking tips from a master vintner; championship golf; and cave and volcano exploration. Spain offers several themed routes, including Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James). Sustainability and World Heritage Spain is a haven for protected natural spaces and starlight reserves, and it has the world's highest number of biosphere reserves (52). The country's 48 UNESCO World Heritage sites range from prehistoric cave art to historic buildings. Basque Culinary Center Photo: © Basque Culinary Center spain.info | 3
