Sensory Spain | The Art of Travel

Close your eyes to experience a new culture. Our lives and sense of home are dominated by familiar smells, tastes, sounds and textures. To lose yourself in a new country, discover it through your other senses.

Mark Abouzeid, Director

Starting from the Orange Coast of Spain, via the Costa Blanca to Andalusia: this film takes us on a first person, cultural journey dominated by smells, tastes and sounds.

At a time when checklist tourism and Instagram destinations are rampant, The Art of Traveling series presents documentaries that spotlight the way travel should experienced, first hand. The clues to understanding cultural identity can be found through experiencing with all the senses.

This documentary gives an insight into the sensory experience of traveling through different areas of Spain. Filmed on location in Valencia, Alicante, Elche, Granada, Cordoba, Seville, Marbella and Ronda.
