Spain is sometimes referred to as “the Spains,” and for good reason. Each of its 17 autonomous regions is distinct – as you’ll discover as you cruise the entire Spanish Coast from one side of the Iberian Peninsula to the other. Cuisines, customs, even languages differ as you travel French-influenced Catalonia, Moorish Andalusia, Portuguese- and Celtic-inspired Galicia, and the indigenous Basque Country. All the more reason to appreciate long days in port and an overnight stay. Compare the architectural extremes of Barcelona’s multi-spired Sagrada Familia with the graceful arches of Seville’s Alcazár Palace, the ship-inspired glass balconies of El Ferrol with Bilbao’s undulating titanium Guggenheim. Taste fresh oysters in the seafood paradise of Vigo, and wafer-thin slivers of melt-in-your-mouth air-cured ham (jamon) in Málaga. Treat your palate to a palette of fine wines from Galicia’s zesty whites to the Basque Country’s full-bodied Tempranillo to Andalusia’s famous sherries to Catalonia’s sparkling Cava … and a grand finale of French wines in Bordeaux. See the real Spain in towns like Vigo and Andalusia’s White Villages. Make the most of your time as your yacht docks in the center of center of Old Towns while larger ships must dock at ports further away.
