T is for Turismo

The tourism industry has always been strong in Spain. As a Londoner, I am always amused and surprised by the range of adverts for Spain and its different “autonomias” (autonomous regional governments).

While writing the article “I is for inglés” for the e-book “The A to Z of Spanish Culture”, I did a bit of research on the very famous slogan used by the Spanish government mid 20th century “Spain is different”. In doing so, I found this very amusing blog post in the Spanish newspaper “El Pais”. It’s written in Spanish, but it’s got plenty of posters in it to amuse you. And of course, all the slogans are in English.
