Considering Spain’s vast range of attractions, cultural as well as natural, the country can rightly be stated as an appealing tourist hot spot in the world. Spain remains on top of the list of travelers who want to be a part of the country’s lifestyle and explore outstanding Romanesque, Gothic and Moorish architecture, warm Mediterranean climate, Spanish foods and amazing beaches. Botellon street parties and famous bullfighting are other crowd pullers.
Attractions in the Spanish land include both cultural and natural. Nature has been very generous to this Iberian country. Top cities, such as Madrid, Barcelona, Granada and Valencia house a generous number of attractions from the medieval castles to ancient monuments, from the white villages to Moorish architectural grandeur.
Spanish landscape is varied. Galicia’s evergreen estuaries, the Sierra Nevada’s rugged mountains, Almeria’s deserts and the glittering coastlines would enthrall even the most discriminating travelers. Heading to the capital will help you create in-erasable memories with the Prado Museum and the world famous Royal Palace. Barcelona turns out to be a major destination for church and castle lovers. The Sagrada Familia Church makes a star attraction in Barcelona. It was designed by Antoni Gaudi.
To know Spanish culture, you must experience the traditional siesta. It is an afternoon nap when schools and colleges, industries and businesses shut down for a couple of hours. This period is meant to eat, sleep and relax.
Botellon is a favorite activity for youngsters and college students. It is a typically night-time activity when people gather around in the streets to socialize and drink. Granada and Seville are the main street party destinations in the country. This tradition is now spreading to other regions as well.
