Spain tourism: hot weather, culture and culinary delights

Home to over 47 million people, Spain offers a wide variety of tourist attractions. Travellers hop on flights to Spain to explore its beaches, discover its rich cultural heritage, sweeping landscapes and stately monuments, or get a taste of everything from siestas to fiestas to tasty tapas. Most admit that more than one trip is required to experience it all!

Madrid, the capital

Madrid offers travellers many things to do, but museums, spacious parks and beautiful gardens make the top of the list. This is also the city of choice for those wanting to attend a traditional bullfight, catch a Real Madrid football match or shop in the sprawling El Rastro outdoor market.

Barcelona, the city of Gaudí

Art and architecture enthusiasts fall head over heels for Barcelona thanks to Gaudí’s gothic/modern legacy, and most notably, his Sagrada Familia. When night falls, tourists head to La Rambla to get a taste of the city’s fantastic nightlife. Nature lovers are encouraged to make a day trip to Costa Brava or Montserrat mountain to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities.

Spain tourism, La Costa del Sol

The Costa del Sol region is all beaches, sun and sea. Malagá and the surrounding area are for many a favourite destination for their golden beaches dotted with coastal resorts that have become increasingly popular in recent years.

Spanish gastronomy

Foodies will thrill at the variety and rich flavours of Spanish cuisine. Tapas are a must, of course, but culinary aficionados also delight in sampling the country’s many wines and sparkling cavas, olive oils, cured meats, local cheeses and other regional specialties.
