Distinct for its incredible natural diversity and equally rich cultural landscape, Spain is a country steeped in beauty, history, and character. From the scenic hills and remote wilderness of the north to the popular coastlines of the south, Spain offers some of the liveliest cities and best beaches in Europe, not to mention striking volcanic islands.
Historic cities tell the tales of bygone eras, bursting with architecture, art, and sightseeing opportunities aplenty, including Moorish palaces, Roman ruins, and Renaissance cathedrals, plus modern museums and galleries proudly showcasing fine examples of artworks and artefacts. Whether wandering down cobbled streets or perusing promenades flanked by couture shops, Spain’s style and sophistication are apparent. It is little wonder that cities like Madrid and Barcelona have become so synonymous with fashion, fine food, and a lively night scene. While cities hold an undeniable draw, so too do the quaint towns and villages that dot the hilltops, valleys and coastal bluffs, each harkening back to Old Spain and where daily life flows at a simpler, slower pace. Unsurprisingly, the beaches of the south have been longstanding favourites among travellers, offering consistently hot summers, soft sands, and fabulous villas and resorts for couples, families, and friends. Much like the south coast, the Balearic Islands are also a firm favourite, with chic yachting harbours, stunning scenery, warm weather, and ample social and sporting options for visitors. With restaurants, bars, shops, golf, hiking, cycling, sailing, and watersports, the islands offer a rich mix of ways to spend the days. So, whether it’s siestas or fiestas that you’re looking for, Spain’s innate diversity has something for everyone.
