An exciting Adventure from Marbella: Two continents in one day!

One of the most successful activities from the sunny Costa del Sol is the tour to Tangier, Morocco.
Tangier lies on the North African coast at the western entrance to the Strait of Gibraltar where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Spartel.
The history of Tangier is very rich due to the historical presence of many civilizations and cultures starting from the 5th century BC. Between the period of being a Phoenician town to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a place —and, sometimes a refuge— for many cultural diversities. However, it wasn't until 1923 that Tangier was attributed an international status by foreign colonial powers, thus becoming a destination for many Europeans and non-Europeans alike, such Americans and Indians.
With its souks, traditional Moroccan cuisine and many attractions, it's the perfect destination for a one day trip. Tangier, also known as the White City, revolves around its brilliant import and export port and you are sure to see many millionaires' yachts where the Mediterranean and Atlantic Ocean meets.
Many famous writers like Paul Bowles and William Burroughs visited Tangier and even called it their home. The city is very popular with tourists and Moroccan holiday makers as it has beautiful beaches to entertain them.

 

Graffiti Painting Team Building!

A young, urban and ice-breaking activity!
Spanish Heritage has organized a team building activity in the gardens of the Juan Carlos I Hotel in Barcelona in which participants separated into teams paint a graffiti wall. Following the instructions of a team of professionals, they will paint a 26 x 2 meter wall. Each team of 10 participants has a scale picture of their own panel, and they will need to cooperate with other teams in order to have a successful result.
Accompanied by the music of a DJ performing rap and urban sounds the event was a success and was followed by a cocktail and dinner “al fresco” under the Barcelona stars!

 

Do you know about Panellets?

Panellets are a traditional Catalonian sweet which is eaten during the All Saints celebrations. In the eighteenth century, they were blessed during religious celebrations and shared amongst the congregation afterwards.
It is autumn, the season in which nature is in decline. Once again, the first days of November see the renewal of the age-old tradition of paying homage to the dead, and gastronomy is also a faithful reflection of social customs. Along with the traditional fritters and marzipan rolls, in Catalonia, at this time of year, desserts such as panellets return to the tables of many homes.
The celebration of the Castañada festival is linked to the old bell ringers’ tradition of spending the night between All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day ringing the bells of the parish churches and convents, calling people to prayer. In order to relieve their tiredness, they ate chestnuts, which were the seasonal fruit, accompanied by dessert wine. At the end of the eighteenth century, this custom of eating chestnuts led to the appearance of chestnut sellers on the streets.
Traditionally, it was customary to eat the chestnuts with panellets made from marzipan and covered with pine nuts. However, different recipes have surfaced over the years and you can now find all sorts of panellets. 
If you come to Catalonia during the fall season, don’t miss them!!
