  12:00am Cadiz, Spain
Spain's gateway to the Atlantic, Cadiz welcomes you to 3,000 years of history and to the nearby city of Seville, famed for its bullfights, flamenco and flower-filled patios. Columbus crossed the ocean blue from Andalusia, forever tying the Americas to Seville.

  12:00am Malaga, Spain
Its privileged location has attracted travellers, merchants, artists and explorers that have left their mark on what is now a cosmopolitan, relaxed and hospitable city. Malaga has an attractive old quarter by its cathedral, two forts, the Alcazaba and Gibralfaro, that offer fine views, gardens and museums, and good shopping on its bustling 'avenidas'. It is the gateway to the beaches of Torremolinos, the exclusive clubs and marina of Marbella, Puerto Banus and the hill village of Mijas.

  12:00am Cartegena, Spain
This refreshing town on Spain's Murcia coast is a living book of history with its displays of what remains of forts, naval walls, Moorish-influenced buildings, and ruins left behind by the Romans. Small restaurants line the picturesque shores serving marinated octopus and piping hot paellas - perhaps with a glass of wine - to anyone wishing to relax aside the Mediterranean.

  12:00am Palma, Majorca, Spain
Mallorca is the Balearic Island's -- largest land mass and a sun worshipper's paradise. Its capital city of Palma boasts dramatic Gothic architecture, charming hilltop villages, olive groves and hidden beaches.

  12:00am Barcelona, Spain
Home to the 1992 Olympics, this cosmopolitan yet Gothic city is a study in contrasts. Take a few extra days to browse the modern shops along the bustling Las Ramblas or explore Barcelona's oldest residential district, the Barri Gotic. And the Picasso Museum is an absolute must-see.

  12:00am Valencia, Spain
This ancient city is an exhilarating mix of history, art and intellectual activity. Its rich Hispanic culture is visible everywhere in art and architecture reflecting Roman, Visigoth, Moorish, and Aragonese traditions; masterworks by El Greco, Goya, and Velazquez; ancient Greek and Iberian ceramics and prehistoric fossils from archaeological finds.

  12:00am Vigo, Spain
Vigo clings to the slope of Monte del Castro, overlooking a namesake bay so vast, it could shelter an entire fleet. The city's medieval heritage is seen in the narrow streets and granite houses of the Ribera del Berbes, the old fishermen's quarter. Vigo is also the gateway to Santiago de Compostela, the most venerated shrine in all Europe during the Middle Ages. Pilgrims from the four corners of Christendom flocked to the magnificent cathedral, built between the 12th and 13th centuries. The cathedral still draws thousands of daily visitors today.

  12:00am La Coruna, Spain
With La Coruna's impressive and extensive history, visitors are often surprised at how modern the city is. It was from here that, in 1588, Spain sent its "invincible" Armada sailing. A year later, Sir Francis Drake sent those ships scrambling, burning most of the city just for good measure. In the process, La Coruna lost all of its Roman antiquities, including the Torre de Hercules, the present day monument was totally covered over by brick. The city does, however, still offer incredible vistas, situated as it is on an outstretch of land blanketed on each side by the sea.
