Spain’s uniquely layered history makes it a prime destination for those in search of culture. 

From Roman engineering to Gothic architecture, Moorish design to 20th Century masterpieces, the country offers rich pickings.

In this seminar our expert speakers will look at where Spain sits in a European tourism context, what the latest trends are in terms of product and delivery and how it can continue to hold its position as one of Europe’s top cultural destinations.

The event is designed for destinations and operators alike and will offer examples from elsewhere in Europe using our broad experience, as well as exploring what attracts markets from around the world.  

Please note that the seminar will be held in Spanish. Free participation for ETOA members. If you are not an ETOA member yet, contact Marta Garcia at






Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

Masterworks from Budapest. From the Renaissance to the Avant-Garde
From 18 February to 28 May 2017
A carefully selected group of 90 works from the permanent collection of the Budapest Museum of Fine Arts and the Hungarian National Gallery will be on view at the museum since February 2017. The Budapest Museum of Fine Arts, founded in the 19th century, owns extensive collections of Old Master and modern paintings, works on paper, and sculptures. The Hungarian National Gallery was officially established as a national museum in 1957, though it actually dates from 1802, and houses Hungarian artworks. The group of works shown in Madrid give an idea of both institutions’ holdings through paintings, sculptures and drawings by great artists such as Dürer, Raphael, Annibale Caracci, Leonardo da Vinci and Peter Paul Rubens, as well as Spaniards like Velázquez and Murillo. The exhibition also includes a magnificent selection of works by Hungarian artists, among them Károly Ferenczy and Sándor Bortnyik, from the collection of the Hungarian National Gallery.
