Spain is the second-most-visited tourist destination in the world—and little wonder. With its tapestry of cultures, cutting-edge spirit combined with a deep reverance for the past, España is dynamic and ever-surprising. Sunbathing on a dazzling white Baleares beach. Grapes ripe for harvest. Madrid's Parque del Buen Retiro. A pan of paella valenciana, Bilbao's Guggenheim, the castles of Castile, sheep grazing in a bucolic mountain meadow. Featuring hundreds of fabulous full-color photographs, and text by Penelope Casas, America's foremost writer on Spanish food and culture, 365 Days in Spain is a tribute to the land's vibrant soul.

How maravilloso! Shaggy sheep dotting Basque mountain meadows. The melting spires of La Sagrada Familia and the undulating curves of the Guggenheim Bilbao. Pans of scrumptious paella. Plus, fields of bright poppies, the glittering waters (and nightlife) of Ibiza, walking Las Ramblas, vibrant painted tiles, clusters of green grapes, spicy chorizo, and Madrid’s Plaza Mayor at dusk.
Spain, a country of abundant natural beauty, reverent of its rich past—yet on the cutting edge of art, architecture, and cuisine—is romantic, ever-surprising, and utterly captivating. Featuring lively text by Penelope Casas and hundreds of full-color photographs, 365 Days in Spain visits a dozen regions, from Catalunya to Murcia, "the garden of Spain," from the Canary Islands to Castilla y Leon, where, true to its name, ancient castles still rise from the landscape.
Penelope Casas is the author of Discovering Spain: An Uncommon Guide and five bestselling cookbooks. She is a recipient of the Spanish government’s National Prize of Gastronomy.
