A three-part BBC series showing an insight into Spanish art and culture. Art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon goes on the road to reveal the art treasures of Spain. Travelling from the south to the north he explores some of Europe’s most important artists from Renaissance to Modernist - including Goya, Picasso, Dali, El Greco and Velasquez. And, going "off the beaten track", he reveals rich insights into the culture and people who live and work with the greatest Spanish art and architecture every day.
