Here you will find a little bit of everythin. There are historic villages, thermal springs, mountain communities devoted to design, the world’s largest waves, castles, canals, cherries and wines. In a region so varied – so steeped in history – all visitors can really hope to gather are snapshots; vignettes of life and legacy in a destination that defies definition and seeks to surprise.
