In A Nutshell

winding streets, smooth Rioja and cultural heritage

Not just the home of sangria, Flamenco, and siestas, Spain has a lot more to offer the visitor. Whether it’s a city break in beautiful Madrid, or vibrant Barcelona; a week soaking up the culture of Andalucia, or just soaking up the sun in Mallorca, you’ll want to return to discover more. The variety of landscapes and culture in Spain is truly breathtaking. Known for its winding streets, smooth Rioja and cultural heritage, Andalucia is popular for historians, culture lovers and romantics. From the beautiful city of Seville, the setting for many famous operas, to Ronda with its landmark bullring, and to the magnificent coastline, it is a very popular part of the country. The pickings are rich, from a treasure trove of UNESCO heritage sites, to a calendar painted bright with fiestas, festivals and saints’ days with the entire hullabaloo that goes along, to age-old culinary traditions matched by unique spirits and wines. All in all it’s a country pleasingly less homogenous than first-time visitors expect more paella than a soup, from its Atlantic northern coast to its beautiful Mediterranean islands, from the snow of the mountains of Catalunia to the olive-groves and desertscapes of Andalucia.

Hotels

super modern design with service levels are high across the board

Spain’s hotels offer very good value for money, even at the high end of the spectrum. The Spanish are particularly good at combining amazing historic buildings with super modern design, and service levels are high across the board. The state-run Parador chain is a particularly good example of this type of hotel. Outside the major cities, you will also find casas rurales; these are the Spanish equivalent of the French B&B and are often charming places to stay. Lastly, Spain has a series of large resort hotels located on its beaches if you’re looking for a little vacation from your vacation.
