Tapas, flamenco dancing and beautiful beaches are usually the first things that come to mind when we consider traveling to Spain. There is so much more to this modern country than its stereotypes and truly a lifetime could be spent exploring this amazing country caught between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea.
Many first time visitors flock to the Mediterranean and the famous beaches of Spain, including the Costa Brava. Tourists are quickly surprised to learn that the history and culture of Spain is even more impressive than the postcard perfect surf. Second only to Italy for having the most UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world, weeks could be sent just exploring cities like Barcelona, Madrid and Seville. The food found around this European country is equally legendary and is something the Spanish take very seriously. Spending time at cafes with friends, eating tapas and drinking wine is an important part of the laid back Spanish lifestyle.
Tourism is more important than ever in this country and visitors will find a friendly and welcoming people wherever they go. If you’re an active traveler, there are plenty of historic pilgrimage routes where you can flex your muscles, but even if you’re not a pro they provide a nice day out for almost anyone. It’s hard not to fall madly in love when you travel to Spain, and that romance is sure to rub off on all visitors.
