Spain Travel Highlights

Spain is a wonderfully diverse country for tourism. You can visit Madrid for a taste of Spanish big city living or head to popular Barcelona to mix the city with beaches and the Mediterranean.

However, it is in Andalusia where Spain’s beauty shines. Cordoba, Granada, Seville and Ronda are but a few stunning historic cities bursting with culture and delicious food.

Since 1918, Spain has been dedicated to preserving lands as National Parks and there are a total of 16 beautiful parks to visit in this country.

Our favorite hike is close to Granada in a small town called Monachil. The hike is known as Los Cahorros and it has an Indiana-Jones feel to it.

Madrid has a handful of excellent day trip options such as Segovia, Toledo or Avila to include on your itinerary. Our travel guides will help you plan your Spanish vacation.

Just be careful you don’t get too accustomed to siestas!
