You heard that right. Tile of Spain is currently seeking four designers or architects to go on a week-long, all expense paid press junket to Spain. The trip runs from February 4th through the 12th, 2011 and coincides with Cevisama. Cevisama is Spain's international tile and bath furnishings show.
This trip promises to expose its lucky attendees to the wonder and complexity of Spanish culture, architecture, food and art.
The tour starts in Zaragoza, Spain's fifth largest city and the capital of Arragon. Zaragoza boasts 1500 years of architectural and cultural heritage and was the farthest north Arab city in Spain.
|La Basilica del Pilar, Zaragoza|
From Zaragoza, the tour heads to Teruel, a small city also in Arragon. Teruel brought the world jamón serrano, Spain's world famous cured ham and it's also the home of Mudéjar, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
|La Torre San Pedro, Teruel|
From Teruel, the tour wraps up in Valencia, Spain's third largest city and the site of Cevisama, Spain's great tile and bath industry show.
|La Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias, Valencia|
This trip is open to any US Interior Designer or Architect out there and four people will make the final cut. If you'd like to register for consideration, you can do so by filling out an application on Tile of Spain's Reign in Spain page on their website. Hurry though, the deadline is December 1st.
