This is the Real Spain

Have you ever heard of the ancient dialects preserved by the shepherds in Pasiego Valleys or of the natural pools of Gredos Mountains where you can bathe at an altitude of two thousand metres?

Did you know that the Alcudia Valley is home to the largest mercury mines in the world, or that the Jerte Valley unfolds a magnificent flowering show in autumn?

Do you know the exquisite honey that is produced in the La Alcarria fields or the world-award winning Payoyo goat cheese from the Sierra de Grazalema? Well... this is the Real Spain, and it's time for you to discover it. 

The authentic Spain

Forgotten lands, unimaginable landscapes, gems of art and architecture, surprising customs and villages rooted in a stirring and fascinating history. All of this is accompanied by an immense gastronomic and wine culture without which the identity of the authentic Spain could not be understood.
