The late 19th century witnessed an extraordinary flowering of art that transformed the Cote d’Azur into the greatest concentration of modern art in Europe and during our three days in France at the start of our voyage we will enjoy some of the great works by Chagall, Matisse and Cezanne. Sailing from France we follow the coast around to Spain’s province of Catalonia and our first call will be to the Medieval town of Figueres, the birthplace of Salvador Dali. Then on to Barcelona, a unique and marvellous city with its Modernista architecture. Staying in Catalonia our next call will be the historic city of Tarragona, a veritable museum-town with remains of all the civilisations that have crossed the Iberia. Before our journey continues south we sail to the Balearic Island of Menorca to explore its rich history and and experience the tranquillity and beauty of Valldemossa, a town that has been a source of inspiration for many artists. Our voyage continues along the Spanish coast visiting the great city of Valencia with its 13th century cathedral with paintings by Goya, the great naval port of Cartagena with its fine Roman remains, Granada and the incomparable Alhambra and penultimately Gibraltar. We end on a high note with our passage up the Guadalquivir river to Seville, surely the perfect way to arrive at this wonderful Andalusian city.
