Recovering its sparkle with renewed vigor, Mallorca is re-emerging as an exclusive destination for dramatic coastlines, romantic baby bays and parade of terracotta rooftops. Neighboring Ibiza refuses to let its guard down; now as renowned for its hedonism as its spectacular seascapes of pretty bays, hidden alcoves and sweeping sands. Cities Madrid and Barcelona are ever-evolving metropolises for Flamenco, food and array of colorful fiestas. Don’t miss the astounding restaurants in the Basque country, wilderness of the central plains and leading nouveau galleries in the north. Non-paella eaters are certain to warm to regional infusions and variations. Fussy eaters can pick their way through tapas of the freshest local ingredients. Besides, it’s good sustenance for museum indulgence, including the Guggenheim.

Sunny Spain with it's warm nights and warm people truly lives up to it's reputation. Locals are incredibly welcoming and will not only take the time to explain how to get to your next destination in detail but will often take it upon themselves to guide you there personally. With a temperate climate pleasant days turn to pleasant nights alive with rich night life that in the cities quite naturally continues into the wee hours of the morning. Delicious food is in abundance, the cities are packed with restaurants and the restaurants are always packed with people. Spain is much more affordable than the countries in to the north so it is a great destination for budget travelers and backpackers alike. The history in Spain is rich and unique and varies greatly by region.

Out of all the European countries, I've traveled most extensively in Spain. Seville is still one of the top 3 trips I've ever been on and I never stop dreaming of returning to Barcelona. Spain compared to most of Western Europe is surprisingly affordable too!

Spain may not be as popular with international tourists as France and Italy, but it can compete with both countries in terms of wealth of cultural, natural and historical sites. With 2 world class cities in Madrid and Barcelona, along with a wealth of history ranging from the Romans to the Islamic Conquest to later Catholic kingdoms, Spain is full of interesting places to visit. There are great beaches, beautiful mountain parks, and of course some of the best food in the world. What ever you want Spain has it.

Spain is a very beautiful state with strong tradition and really charming and fascinating cities. I haven't visited it all yet, however I went I've visited the most important cities and had quite a long trip in Andalusia. The things I mostly aprreciate about Spain are the wide lanscapes of Andalusia, the great sense for music, dancing and traditions, the capability of innovating and the warmness of people.

Spain is Italy's naughtier cousin. While both countries offer sun, warm, welcoming people, and great history, Spain has a sort of wildness that genteel Italy cannot approach. Tapas bars, smoky restaurants, late nights, and an atmosphere so relaxed that nothing seems to truly matter, plus the opportunity to take in some Picassos and flamenco dancing-that sums up Spain for me. A quirky, charming, creative and very very fun place to have a holiday.

Of the 53 countries I've traveled to, Spain is right up in there in the top 10, if not top 5. The Spanish lifestyle of work hard (well, kinda) and play hard (very), made for many a night that didn't end until the sun was peeking out from the horizon. And while I do love Barcelona, if I had to choose between north or south, I'd chose the cool, wet and green mountains of the north (the Basque country in particular holds a certain sway over me till this day), over the packed beaches of Cataluna with its captivating joie de vivre that seems to permeate even the most desolate corners of this fascinating European country.
