Spain’s location on the southwestern tip of Europe makes it a unique melting pot of cultural influences. You can feel this amalgamation in Spain’s music, architecture, and cuisine, making it one of the most fun and fascinating countries to explore!
Begin your tour in the capital city of Madrid. The Gran Vía runs through the heart of the metropolis, and it’s the perfect place to shop, dine, and admire architecture. The thoroughfare will also feed you right to the famous Cibeles Fountain, Buen Retiro Park, and the Prado Museum, which holds the masterpieces of Botticelli, Velázquez, and Goya. Be sure to also visit the stately Royal Palace.
The architecture of Antoni Gaudí dots the city, and his vibrant, lively works are a perfect symbol for life in Barcelona. Las Ramblas is a famous shopping quarter where you can see a Miró mural, enjoy street performers, shop artisan crafts and luxury stores, visit art galleries, and wander the stalls of the famous La Boqueria market. Playful Park Güell and stunning La Sagrada Familia are two of Gaudí’s most iconic works and must-see destinations in Barcelona.
The medieval walled city of Segovia makes for an easy excursion from Madrid. As does Toledo, with its mighty hilltop fortress—the Alcázar—Gothic cathedral, ancient synagogue, and a museum dedicated to El Greco.
Along the Mediterranean coastline, Valencia offers a unique mix of old and new. The futuristic buildings of the City of Arts and Sciences stand next to ancient stone buildings and colorful row houses. There’s the bustling Mercado Central and, of course, the iconic Bullring, where you can see the elegant dance of the matador.
