Each year, we take a small group of friends and clients to places that mean something to us. This year, we go to Spain.
Last Spring, our own Micah Christensen (PhD, History of Art | University of London) worked with an international cast of friends and artists to arrange a tour of Rome for ten people. They visited well-known monuments like the Sistine Chapel and Borghese Gallery; and, took private tours of Rome’s most luxurious palaces.
This year will be even better.
Over the past ten years, Micah has been to Spain more than 30 times while researching his PhD. Spain has become a kind of second home, with each trip bringing more insights and knowledge of hidden gems.
Starting in Madrid, Micah will begin at the Museo del Prado, to see works by Velázquez, Goya, Rubens, and Bosch. He’ll visit the Royal Palace, Sorolla Museum, and a flamenco show. Then, the group will travel to the ancient city of Toledo to see monasteries, cathedrals, and works by El Greco.
Then, on to the Roman ruins in Segovia and the Royal Palace of El Escorial, considered by many to be the eight wonder of the world.
Finally, we’ll travel by bullet train to Barcelona to tour Antonio Gaudí’s Catedral de la Sagrada Familia, begun in the late-nineteenth century and now in the final stage of construction.
Full of wonderful food, art, architecture, and — for those of you who want to lay back a little — enough time to golf and shop, the trip to Spain will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see the country through the eyes of someone who has been over a decade mining its secrets.
