Spain is every traveler’s dream, with sunkissed beaches, stunning mountain scenery, historic cities, culinary delights and a culture that uplifts the soul. No one who has visited Spain can claim to return untouched by its diverse yet soul-stirring landscape, its rich and varied past, or its vibrant present.
Spain was the first global empire of the modern world and the most powerful, leaving behind a linguistic legacy across the corners of the globe, making Spanish the second most spoken language today. During the Golden Years, there was much progress and many architectural wonders saw the light of day. Not surprisingly, Spain ranks third in the number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites that lie within its boundaries.
While most people converge on the more popular cities like Barcelona and Seville to marvel at the architecture of the past and soak in the culture, other historic cities like Granada, Toledo, and Bilbao also have architectural wonders and a cultural scene worth exploring. Spain’s Moorish past is showcased in all its glory at the Alhambra Palace in Granada and the Mezquita of Cordoba, while the cities of Tarragona and Segovia have some of the best Roman ruins.
Spain is renowned for its ‘fiestas’ and some of the best cultural festivals in the world, such as the Semana Santa, La Tomatina, and Pamplona attract visitors from all corners of the globe. The country has some legendary nightlife too, with beach resorts like Ibiza, Benidorm, and Sitges pulling in the party animals.
Like many European nations, the Spanish also take their food and wine very seriously. The unassuming tapas can take on a variety of forms to stir your tastebuds like no other, while celebrity chefs create magic in the Michelin star restaurants which abound in this part of the world.
The largest country in Southern Europe has something for everyone, whether it’s the thrill of adventure, a romantic getaway, an idyllic village or a culinary feast; Spain has to be experienced first hand to understand all that makes it so special.
