Teen Program in Sevilla, Spain
Sevilla Teen ProgramAs an old tourism promotion campaing said: "Spain is Different"
From its dazzling beaches to its ancient castles, Spain is a country as diverse as the cultures which have influenced its art, architecture, music and lifestyle. It is a land where cathedrals, roman ruins and arabic kashbas are interspersed with skyscrapers, where modern rock mixes with flamenco guitar, and night clubs compete with cozy "tapas" bars.
The more you travel through Spain, the more you get the differences between regions, you will realize how many Spains there are. From hot, dry, home of bullfigting and flamenco Andalucia, to fertile Cataluña, to the mainland Castilla to the mediterranean coast of Levante facing the laving on the Mediterranean sea.
Spain offers some of the world's most famous museums, resorts, and festivals, making it a unique and enchanting destination.
