Spain is such a big and beautiful country in Europe that there are so many lovely towns and cities, quiet villages and vibrant resorts to visit that it can be quite overwhelming when one wishes to visit Spain.
However, the best place to start checking out Spain is Barcelona. It is such an exciting and vibrant town that a visitor does not need to worry about being bored. This lively city is never dull and it is a good place to kick off your tour of Spain.
This city is full of life, especially in the summer; there is modernism combined with ancient quarters altogether here. Antoni Gaudi, the renowned architect, has done an amazing job shaping Barcelona alone with his creative architectural designs.
You will be able to view the impressive Casa Batllo as well as the Casa Mila with a leisurely walk along Passeig de Gracia. These ancient castles behold great art designs that are now available for public viewing. The Casa Mila offers a unique experience of enjoying a cocktail at sunset during the summer on its specially designed Alice in Wonderful rooftop. Stroll along the narrow pathways to the ancient quarters that are of Gothic origin to discover the magnificent Gothic Cathedral.
A little out from Barcelona in Figueres lies the most unique and intriguing Northern Spanish museum, which is known as the Dali museum. This masterpiece architecture was specially designed by the Dali himself with amazing art pieces that are a class above.
Barcelona’s coastline, Costa Brava, moves on to the French border to be known as the Mediterranean’s best vacation spot that is unspoiled and exclusive. There is no better place to enjoy vibrancy and life than at Catalonia’s lush and fruitful countryside that is spotted with the best of Spanish vineyards as well as rows of olive groves.
San Sebastian (Donostia)
San Sebastian contains a mixture of cosmopolitan and sophistication for a resort town. It offers the visitor all the desired luxuries that a big city offers on one hand while on the other, San Sebastian has a beautiful Atlantic coastline and beaches that are popular for its soft sand and fun in the sun. San Sebastian is considered the heart and soul that brings on the vibrant life in this Basque area. It has top quality restaurants and tapas bars that serve mouth-watering cuisine. Being strategically located close to the French border allows San Sebastian to enjoy the mix of culture and cuisine of both boundaries that is so unique. Take a bus ride to visit Frank O. Gehry’s home in Bilbao; Gehry designed the spectacular Guggenheim Museum which showcases amazing architectural designs.
This quaint historical town of Pamplona resonates loudly Hemingway’s famous quotes on the dangerous yet adrenaline-pumping bull runs. July would be the best time to visit Pamplona when the famous Bull Run fiesta comes on; it is called the La Fiesta de San Fermin. The fiesta lasts 14 days. The town’s population quickly triples during this time when all that anyone would be found doing here is eating, drinking or dancing anywhere and anytime until the next bull running.
