Sapphire seas lapping up against flawless sandy beaches; the hilly coastal plains of Valencia; groves spotted with juicy, ripe oranges as far as the eye can see; idyllic islands; stone castles; snow-topped mountains; arid deserts in harsh hilly regions; elegant, sophisticated cities, from the magic of Barcelona, the beauty of San Sebastian, the fun of Madrid, the gorgeous architecture of Bilbao, to the Moorish heritage of the South. Spain is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, for good reason. It has it all: great food, fun people, storied history and amazing cities.
Spain is a melting pot of different peoples, from early invaders such as the Basques, Celts, and Iberians, to the Romans and latterly the Moors, who came over from North Africa and marked the zenith of the Muslim conquests. As a tourist, you will find a set of fiercely independent, totally unique regions, which have their own food, culture, fashion, and style. Each of them are magical in their own right, from the joy of walking down ‘Las Ramblas’ in Barcelona, to the winding streets of Madrid, the parties of Ibiza and that magic of the Basque, each and every part of Spain will steal your heart in its own special way.
