From our esteemed travel guides to our in-depth reports, Spain has captured the interests of Monocle’s team since launch. Here we expand on that connection further, in partnership with Spain Tourism.
From balmy beaches to snow-covered pistes, a winter escape to Spain offers the pleasures of all four seasons at once. Monocle’s new film, Winter in Spain, makes a compelling case for visiting the country in the northern hemisphere’s traditionally cooler months. Discover the mountain ranges providing less-crowded alternatives to Alpine ski resorts and the islands offering year-round mild temperatures.

Like one of his Cubist paintings, everyone who looks at Pablo Picasso sees a different side of this most dynamic of artists. One constant in his 70-year career, however, was the influence of his homeland. Picasso remained on the move but the spirit of Spain – and his birthplace of Málaga – lingered in every brushstroke. As the 50th anniversary of his death is marked by Picasso Celebración 1973-2023, there has never been a better time to find your own inspiration in the great master’s work.
