SPANISH GROUP OF WORLD HERITAGE CITIES is made up of eight monumental centres -Ávila, Cáceres, Córdoba, Cuenca,
Salamanca , Santiago de Compostela,
Segovia and Toledo,
which were joined together by this distinction of the UNESCO between the years 1985 and
1998. Spain is, in this way, the country in the world with the largest number of cities
holding this prestigious title. In 1993 they formed the GROUP that unites them in order to
defend their common interests, study solutions to similar problems and carry out a
collective social and touristic promotion.
At each stop you will discover unique and common aspects of the great human adventure experienced by the peoples of Spain. You will hear the lessons of tradition, relive the passages of legend, walk alongside unrepeatable people and characters; you will taste the scenery, the.odours and the gastronorny; you will live their eternal concerns and future hopes. You will wake up each day with sounds and views which, although different, have the same force of eternity, lording over the multiple experiences of cities which are, above all, living centres throbing with their inhabitants' vigour.
Thefore, let the traveller outline his route, be it Renaissance, Baroque, Plateresque, Neoclassic, Romantic, cathedrals, palaces, cloisters, convents, literary, picaresque, theatre, pictorial, gastronomic, nocturnal, sport... and he will see that each and everyone of these worlds is present and conjugated in the eight Spanish World Heritage Cities.
