Organising a team building activity in a country such as Spain, known worldwide for its rich culinary culture, is one of the most rewarding experiences you can provide to your team all the while putting them to the test in our challenge. We are able to organise this activity in a number of locations across Spain including the most popular destinations Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, etc. We originally created the event in Seville, capital of Andalusia in the South of Spain and a perfect location to organise a gastronomic team building activity.
Based on the famous television show MasterChef, Es.cultura’s own “Maestro Chef” cooking corporate event puts its participants to the test in a series of timed cook-off events.

Spain counts some of the finest beaches in Europe. At Es.cultura Events, we’ve spent the last 20 years putting to good use its fine beaches for our clients, from the most northeastern point of the country, all the way along the Mediterranean coast, and right down to the provinces of Cadiz and Huelva. Not to mention the great weather conditions that we have in Spain, which allow us to organise our outdoor activities at most times of the year. Simply choose your destination, and our team will be at hand to organise a number of beach activities: sporting activities (football and beach volley tournaments), aquatic activities (sailing, diving, snorkelling, jet-skiing, paddle surf, pedalboats, etc.), zumba classes on the beach… everything to guarantee a highly enjoyable day of team building in Spain!
Add value to your team building in Spain with flamenco workshops and activities in Seville: dancing workshops, percussion classes, and other musical and cultural activities. Your team will enjoy the secrets and beauty of Spain’s flamenco culture. With workshops each more entertaining than the next, you’ll be able to fully enjoy your travel to the Andalusian capital. Learn how to play the castanets, to dance various types of flamenco, and much more, always accompanied by a team of professionals. Teach your team to play in synch with each other, to listen to each other, to open up and communicate with each other. More information on our flamenco workshops is available in our post on a day of team building in Seville and in our post dedicated to musical team building.
If you’re planning to organise a team building trip in Spain, you can’t miss out on Valencia! The city abounds in impressive monuments and buildings and is known across the country for its famous Fallas. One week of festivities, parades, and fireworks shows that take over the city and its entire population every year. In this team building activity, participants get to create their own Mascletà in Valencia (what is a Mascletà?), simulating the famous grand fireworks display during the Fallas. Guided by our experts, participants are given plastic bubble wrap and balloons to assemble in teams and eventually set off to simulate the noise of the Mascletà.
