From picture-perfect villages nestled in the folds of mountains to extravagant architecture, Spain is a visual treat. It’s also one of the world’s leading culinary destinations, boasts stunning coastlines and is home to some of the most vibrant cities in Europe. However you choose to explore this captivating country, plan your trip with our map of Spain below.
Start by trying a Rioja or two at a fabulously stylish bodega, and while you’re in the region head to the iconic avant garden temple of wine, the Bodegas Ysios. Head on to Madrid and you’ll find world-class cultural highlights like the Prado, Reina Sofía and Santiago Bernabéu. But whether you’re trying tapas, haute cuisine, flamenco or clubbing, the city really wakes up when night falls. In Barcelona, meanwhile, you’ll be dazzled by inventive architecture, sun-kissed beaches and Catalan creativity everywhere you look, from Gaudí’s stupendous Sagrada Família and mosaic-encrusted Parc Güell to the dramatically redeveloped waterfront quarter.
