The Florida Trust is Going to Spain in 2019!


The history of Florida is interwoven with that of Spain, which is why we are thrilled to announce that next year we will be taking a very special 11-day tour of Spain, exploring the architecture, people, stories, places and history that helped to create Florida.

Highlights of our trip:

  • Madrid - Explore Madrid's historic center, see the Puerta de Sol and Plaza Mayor, where events have taken place since the 17th century.

  • The Royal Palace of Madrid - The palace, inspired by sketches made by Bernini for the construction of the Louvre in Paris, served as home to the Kings of Spain from Charles III to Alfonso XIII.

  • Toledo - The "City of Three Cultures" is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was the capital of medieval Spain until 1560. Tour includes a Gothic cathedral and a 13th-century synagogue, a testament to Toledo's Jewish heritage. The art of Spain: see El Greco's masterpiece, The Burial of Count Orgaz.

  • Cordoba - Take a walking tour of the Mezquita, the Mosque-Cathedral of Cordobaa and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

  • Seville - Visit Columbus' tomb and the Giralda Bell Tower. See an authentic flamenco show.

  • Valencia - Take a walking tour of the historic city and see the ornate 14th-century Serranos Tower. Enjoy a special paella experience.
