About this Trip
Join World Affairs Council of Charlotte President and CEO LJ Stambuk as you set off on an adventure in Spain’s enchantingly beautiful Castile and León region, where majestic medieval castles and fortresses dot the vast, open landscapes! Stay for seven nights in Segovia’s old town at a 17th-century convent-turned-deluxe hotel overlooking the plains.
Discover Segovia’s stunning treasures, including one of the finest surviving Roman aqueducts and the fairy-tale Alcázar, the fortified palace of Castilian kings. Then venture off to fabled cities including Ávila, enclosed by an impressive medieval wall, and Toledo, the magnificent former capital with wonderfully preserved elements of its Christian, Muslim and Jewish heritage. In Salamanca, the “Golden City,” delight in honey-colored, sandstone architecture and the lively scene at Spain’s oldest university. Wander in the landscaped gardens of the Royal Palace of La Granja de San Ildefonso and view acclaimed art in Madrid’s Prado Museum. This fabulous, small-group experience includes ample meals, wine with dinner, plus a special lunch and wine tasting in the Duero Valley.
