Why is the cycle race called La Vuelta "a" Espana, not "de"?

The title says it all really. Before we started using the vernacular names we always called it *the tour of Spain*. What is this? a. not really understood by Spanish speakers as a tour belonging to Spain b. a mis-understanding of _a_ and _de_ on my part c. just an idiom, do not attempt to translate it
