The latest from contemporary Spain

Issue 5 – Summer 2016

Focusing on contemporary Spanish gastronomy, travel, visual arts, fashion and music, our summer issue brings you a few refreshing propositions:

Fancy a swim in one of the many city pools with a view?

Or how about an intimate stroll around Santiago de Compostela, with Fiona Dunlop as our guide?

And more besides:

Our food and wine correspondent presents a selection of wines from Spain with a cult following.

Jon Bilbao contributes this issue’s short story, quirkily illustrated by Pablo Padilla Jargstorf.

As for music, we have compiled a playlist, which should take you from morning through to evening, from that early stroll on the beach to the club night out; as well as the new music bands that will be blasting on your noise cancelling headphones in the next few months.
