Discover the delectable cuisines and spirits of Spain and France at their authentic best. Treat your palate to Europe’s best seafood in Spain’s Galicia region, to sweet port in Porto, cognac in La Rochelle, and world-famous wines in Bordeaux. Spend time absorbing the culture, history, and landscapes that have gone into the creation of each delicious mouthful. Follow the pilgrims to Santiago de Compostela and share conxuro da quiemada with them in a social ritual passed down through the generations. Toast a region so bursting with flavor you wished you never had to leave.
