There is plenty to see and do in Spain, from the sun-soaked Costa del Sol, to the vibrant markets of Madrid. Spain is much bigger than the UK, but the country is well-linked with rail and bus routes between most major destinations. When visiting Spain, it’s worth noting travel times and distances between some of the places you may want to visit.
A must-see, the Catalan city of Barcelona is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. Taste your way through the cafes of La Rambla, gaze at the architectural wonder of Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia or soak up the matchday atmosphere at the iconic Camp Nou.
The Balearics have it all. Whether it’s partying to the early hours in the nightclubs of Ibiza or escaping to the sun-swept sands of Menorca, these islands should be certain additions to your Spanish tick-list.
You’ll find some of the best beaches in Europe on Spain’s Canary Islands. Famous for the resorts of Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote, this tiny archipelago is closer to northern Africa than it is to Spain.
Dive into the tapas bars of the Spanish capital and experience Latin food at its very best. Sample classic Spanish omelette and load up on moreish patatas bravas, all washed down with some traditional wines. Buen Provecho!
Arabic culture has had a heavy influence on the city of Granada. Formerly the home of the Spanish Moors, this ancient city is an intoxicating blend of east and west. Nowhere is this more apparent than the stunning royal palace: the Alhambra.
Many people undertake the Camino de Santiago every year, a pilgrimage to the Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela said to have been first walked by Jesus’ apostle, James. Whilst you may not want to walk there this time, the city is certainly worth visiting.
