Spain is the land of castles. Its history of conquered and reconquered land made of it a battlefield for many centuries, thus leaving behind many castles and fortresses spread all over its geography. All of them had their moment of glory with an impressive stoned fortification located generally in strategic high locations that still today impress the visitor as it would have impressed the enemy.
The route of the castles allows us to plunge into the history of the turbulent medieval times. Each of them still holds its secrets and maintains its undeniable beauty.
It is clear that the climatic conditions of the north of the Iberian Peninsula were favorable to life in prehistoric times hosting today the oldest remains of human settlements.
Cantabria is one of the richest regions of Europe in parietal cave paintings. In its shelters and caves you can contemplate and study the prehistoric art developed over nearly 36,000 years and the way in which the first settlers lived in the north of the peninsula.
We will learn about the first settlers of the Iberian Peninsula and specifically about those that inhabited Atapuerca, travelling from Cantabria to Burgos to visit the Museum on Human Evolution. This museum holds the remains found during the excavations carried out in this very important archaeological site. The building of the museum is also noteworthy from an architectural perspective, designed by the renowned architect Juan Navarro Baldeweg.
The trip will be done in combination with other sites of interest along the route.
The Arabs occupied the Iberian Peninsula for over eight centuries. During that time, their architecture and Muslim art expanded throughout the whole territory leaving behind a heritage of immeasurable value both from a historical and artistic point of view. Their refined and elaborate construction techniques had an important influence on Christian art, giving way to what is known as “mudejar” style, characteristic of the Hispanic medieval art. Both art expressions expanded throughout the Peninsula but some monuments like the Alhambra in Granada, or Medina Azahara and the Mosque in Cordoba, are an impressive demonstration of this combination and definitely a must-see in this route.
Rome, as well as Islam, had in important and extended presence in Hispania, expanding its influence throughout the Peninsula. The roman legacy is one of the largest and most disperse geographically speaking. Not all roman monuments have survived in such good conditions as the aqueduct of Segovia but nonetheless, we continue to find roman remains in new places even today. A route through Roman Spain could be done in many different locations of the Peninsula, but one of our favorite ones is that which includes Emerita Augusta (today Merida), once the capital city of Lusitania, where we can admire some of the finest and richest roman remains.
