Daily life in Spain moves slowly and runs late – with locals welcoming visitors to their country year-round. You might intend to visit for a beach holiday, a walking tour or a city break, but you’ll experience so much more as each region brings something so different to the table. Even the Spaniards themselves speak of Las Españas, meaning there’s not just one ‘Spain’ but many.
Madrid and Barcelona are hip and energetic cities. The Spanish capital Madrid is home to the Royal Palace and Prado museum, while Catalonia’s capital, Barcelona, is defined by its recognisable landmarks such as Park Güell and Antoni Gaudí’s Sagrada Família church.
Outside of these cities, there is plenty more to see and many more towns to explore, including Granada, Seville and the bustling tourist resorts in the Costa del Sol. There’s also the Canary and Balearic islands too.
