Spain is a veritable cache of unforgettable vistas. Separating Spain from France, the majestic snow-capped Pyrenees, offer plenty of opportunities for skiing. In the north, the winding rivers and forests of Galicia offer a contrast to what people normally think of Spain. Contrasting greatly with Moorish-influenced south, Galicia’s roots are of Celtic origin. Regardless of where you are, there are myriad reminders of Spain’s diverse past, from the Alhambra in Granada to Don Quixote’s windmills in La Mancha.
In Spain, the old goes side-by-side with the new. From Madrid to Barcelona and Salamanca to Toledo, museums and churches flow into bustling neighborhoods with bars and discos. Also ever-present is Spain’s love for the nightlife. Dinner rarely takes place before 9 or 10PM and it is common to sip Sangria from bar to bar, tasting tapas along the way. During the day, be sure to enjoy Spain’s diverse cultural heritage, from painting and literature to architectural wonders, some of which date back to the Moorish occupation in the south and others as recent as Gaudi’s masterpieces around Barcelona. No matter which region of the country you visit, you are bound to enjoy something new, exciting, and memorable.
