THE HISTORY OF SPAIN,
WITHIN YOUR REACH
The great Spanish philosopher and writer, José Ortega y Gasset, said that… “Spain is a dust storm on the road of history after a great people have galloped by”.
A dust cloud that has blown over the millennia, so rich, varied and ancient is its history. We only need to follow that swirling dust to discover its endless length, extending from the dawn of humankind to the present time, in which the feet of the many different people who found a place to prosper have left their prints.
A cloud of dust of which the Cultural Routes in Spain are the best possible representation. From prehistory to the modern times, the Cultural Routes in Spain include the best of its cultural, social and gastronomic elements and they represent a means for the cohesion and structure of its lands and people, as well as of social and economic development.
