Despite the stereotypes of siestas, being late and shouting, there is much more to Spain than meets the eye. With our running tours in Spain, you will scratch the surface of this rich culture and dive into its what really makes the country what it is.

Spain is huge, and the cultures within it can be vastly different. Take architecture. Modernist buildings dominate Barcelona and Catalonia, exemplified by Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia. On the flip side, Andalusia’s powerhouse attractions are from 500 years ago when the Moors ruled Spain. Granada’s Alhambra, Cordoba’s Mosque-Cathedral and Seville’s Alcázar are spectacular constructions that take you right back through the centuries.

You can find yourself in the middle of a fiesta wherever you go. Passionate flamenco performances, flaming dragon parades, tomato-based war and much more are on the festival menu. Some of the best are found on the Balearic Islands of Ibiza and Mallorca. If you’re lucky, you may stumble across one of the novel, yet ludicrous traditions that are the pride and joy of many little villages.

Tapas is the best introduction to Spanish cuisine, and a great example is in the capital, Madrid. Why stress over choosing from a menu when you can have a little dish of everything? Each region is famous for some kind of food, so ask your running guide for tips on what to order. With more Michelin stars than you can shake a stick at, San Sebastián and Bilbao in the Basque Country is foodie Mecca.

It’s no wonder Spain consistently ranks near the top of the list as a popular tourist destination. There’s something for everyone, so start exploring and find which of our running tours in Spain screams out at you.
