The second-most-visited tourist destination in the world, Spain welcomes over 52 million visitors every year. 365 Days in Spain is España all year long—romantic, sun-soaked, irresistible. The craggy peaks of the Sierra Nevada. Madrid's Rastro flea market (in operation for six centuries). Sherry grapes ready for harvest. Crumbling Roman aqueducts, tiled fountains, rounds of queso gallego, fresh-picked oranges, massive windmills recalling Don Quixote. With hundreds of transporting, full-color photographs by Peter Matthews and text by Penelope Casas, America's foremost writer on Spanish food and culture, this calendar is an enticing portrait of Spain— from the ancient to the modern.

From the Back Cover:

ESPÑANA—VIBRANTE, BELLA, MARAVILLOSA

A vineyard in the shadow of snowy Sierra de Tolono. Flamenco dancers in bright flowered dresses. Sunbathing in Torremolinos. Tiled fountains and crumbling Roman Ruins. Camels in Timanfaya National Park. El Prado, a plate of tender squid with olive oil. Turreted city walls, the view across El Tajo Gorge, jamón Serrano, and hiking El Camino de Santiago trail.

In Spain, where a progressive spirit mingles with a healthy reverence for tradition, a profusion of pleasures await the visitor. Featuring hundreds of full-color photographs and text by Penelope Casas, this calendar is an enticing portrait of Spain's colorful, idiosyncratic, sun-soaked soul—from energetic Madrid to Las Rías Gallegas to the volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote.
