Marvel at El Greco’s greatest masterpiece at the Church of Santo Tomé and visit the synagogue of Santa Maria la Blanca in Toledo. En route to Laguardia, see historic sites and Gothic architecture in Burgos. Awaken your palate at a Rioja vineyard, and explore ageless plazas and bodegas inside Laguardia’s walls. Tour the Guggenheim Museum’s cutting-edge art collections in Bilbao. Delight in scenic San Sebastián and see the Old Quarter, Town Hall and a neo-Gothic Cathedral.
