Visit Spain

Now is the time to drop everything that you’re doing right now and plan a holiday in Spain. From the hidden coves and beaches that seem to be everywhere along the Mediterranean coast to the luxurious resorts of the Atlantic coast, there are plenty of mountains for you to explore between those two beautiful points.

There are some fascinating points of interest in Spain that make it truly unique. Did you know that there are Egyptian temples to explore in the country? Or some of the finest Roman ruins that are still used for performances? Even the oldest restaurant in the world today is in this nation.

No matter what city you choose to visit in Spain, you simply must plan for a summer holiday at some point. Almost every community offers a unique fiesta that will become one of the best parties of your life. Forget throwing tomatoes or running with the bulls. Go throw some meringue with thousands of others, attend an all-night folk dance, and then beg forgiveness if you must in the 1,000 year old temples, cathedrals, and mosques that dot the landscape.

Maybe the best part of Spain, however, is that there is something to discover no matter where you are. It could be a secluded beach, an unreviewed restaurant, or the best bottle of wine you’ve ever had. Spain is beautiful and offers you the perfect chance to get away from the rest of the world for as long as you need. Get started on your journey today and who knows what you’ll discover!

Regions of Spain

In the northern part of the country, there are coastal resorts and quaint fishing villages. These will give you a taste of authentic Spanish life in a small village. Some areas, such as La Rioja are known for wine production. You will get to experience the culture more than you would in a large city that is a tourist attraction.

You get the chance to experience history by visiting ancient monasteries and viewing cave paintings. In this area, you can also experience nature. The Pyrenees mountains form the natural border along the northernmost part of the country with France. You can take walking and hiking tours here.

Madrid is the best known city in the Central part of the country. This city is the capital and is filled with things to do. The central part of the map is also where you will find many ancient towns with historical landmarks and places to visit.

The central part of the country consists of plains divided by mountain chains. The Sierra de Guadarrama, Sierra de Gredos and Montes de Toledo are the mountain chains found on this section of the map. You can experience both nature and big city life here.

The Mediterranean is located on the east coast of the country. On the map, you will find the Catalona, Valencia and Murcia regions. Large cities to visit in this area include Alicante, Torrevieja and Barcelona. This area is also known as the Costa Blanca.

The biggest attraction on the Costa Blanca is the beaches. These areas on the coast are very busy during the summer season as people from all over Europe flock to the beaches. Look on the map for smaller villages that lie inland from the coast. There are many interesting places to visit in this area.

The southern part of Spain is where you will find cities like Seville, Malaga and Granada. This area is also known as the Costa del Sol. This area is becoming a popular tourist destination. Major attractions on this coast include the beaches. This area is also becoming a popular spot for golf vacations in all seasons.

The southern part of the map has beach areas on the coast line. Further inland there are mountain areas. Cities on this part of the map are also very popular spots to visit in the summer. This area is also becoming popular in the winter among people trying to escape the freezing temperatures.

Best of Spain

Spain is a unique combination of cultures, colors, and landscapes. From the Plaza Mayor in Spain to the stark landscapes of The Canary Islands, there are many ways for you to experience paradise within this country. Here is some of the best of what Spain offers to visitors every day.

San Sebastian

Located on the Bay of Biscay, what is unique about this community is that it offers the highest per capita rate of Michelin stars for dining establishments. Make sure you walk the steep hills of the city during the day, so you can make room for the culinary experiences offered at night. Try signing up for a food tour of the town as part of the holiday experience.

Extremadura

Situated along the border with Portugal, this region offers visitors a chance to explore the history of Spain. You can find the magnificent Roman amphitheater in Merida, the Old Town of Caceres, which is a world heritage site, and the beautiful cherry trees located in the Jerte Valley. Try to visit during the last week of March to see all the trees in bloom.

Valencia

The paella always seems to taste better here. Maybe that’s because this famous dish was first created in Valencia. Almost every restaurant claims to make the best one in town. Deciding which one is right can be a fun experience. Make sure to tour the Ciutat de les Arts I les Ciencies, which is an aquarium and cultural complex all rolled into one location. Visit in March of the week-long Las Fallas and its intense bonfires too.

Seville

A visit to Seville allows you to see what Andalusia is all about. There is color, exuberance, and a focus on tradition. Wander the streets of the Old Town to find something fantastic. Catch a flamenco show in the evening. Give yourself enough time to wait in line to see the Alcazar, a 1st century Moorish palace. The be sure to enjoy at least one of the native oranges during your stay.

Granada

Snuggling up to the Sierra Nevada mountains, you’ll find a stunning array of mosaics awaiting your arrival. The defensive nature of this city allowed it to be the last holdout during the Reconquista period, which means you’ll find grand arches and intricate fountains in the city as well. If you wish to visit the Alhambra, be advised that tickets will often sell several months in advance.

Balearic Islands

If you prefer long afternoons of sunbathing during your holiday, then these islands along the Valencian Coast in the Mediterranean are a perfect choice. Majorica offers more of a resort atmosphere, while Menorca offers quiet calm. Those who enjoy a thriving nightlife will prefer Ibiza.

The best of Spain will help you explore the complex culture of this country. It will allow you to find a quiet spot to relax and find something wondrous to see. From Barcelona to Madrid, and everywhere in-between, Spain allows you to create your own adventure, one step at a time.

Spain highlights

Energetic markets

Your local highlights on holiday will naturally depend on where abouts you travel to, but we’ll start with some omnipresent and quintessentially Spanish attractions you should make it your business to discover. For a start, you haven’t been on holiday in Spain until you’ve been to a Spanish market. La Boqueria in Barcelona is a great choice, there’ always a hive of activity and colour, sensations and smells – and it’s the best places to find fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and tasty Spanish treats.

Spanish sands

The country’s beaches stretch for miles, incorporating coastline with every turn and twist. Swimming in turquoise waters in between your cultural excursions is the perfect way to refresh yourself, especially if you combine it with a good book on the sands. Great beaches can be found everywhere throughout the country, but Tenerife’s volcanic sands are internationally renowned.

Flamenco dance

You won’t want to leave Spain until you’ve witnessed the sharp stylings of the flamenco dance. Theatres all over the nation pay homage to this fantastic dance style. Dramatically dressed all in black and red, the ladies take to the stage to the sound of live Spanish guitar, delicately picked at unimaginable speeds. These shows are accessible in cities throughout the country.

Food, glorious food

Spain’s gastronomic scene is varied and exciting, as you would expect from the country where tapas was invented. This method of eating – which involves ordering many little plates and sharing with everyone – is a highly social experience and is best found in a traditional tapas bar. Here, you will have to call for the attention of those serving as they simultaneously cater to dozens of diners all at once. By the coast, you’ll taste fish to fresh that it will melt onto your taste buds. Inland, meat is preferred, with Iberian and Serrano ham served with cheese onto crusty bread.

In short, Spain is a wealth of experiences that you won’t want to miss out on and no matter where you go, there will always be something incredible to see or do. Unique gastronomy, a variety of cultures and a plethora of historical attractions, this is a country that you will always want to return to.
