Where to visit in Spain
Our travel experts have collated their top recommendations of where to visit in Spain.
One of the world’s most beautiful cities, Barcelona is home to magnificent architecture, most notably by Antoni Gaudi, like the Sagrada Familia which fuses art nouveau, gothic and modernism styles in unprecedented ways. You’ll find history around nearly every corner, countless art museums, including one of the greatest collections of Pablo Picasso’s works, and outstanding shopping. If you’re here during the warmer months of the year, there are sandy beaches with water ideal for swimming. The Catalonia region is also renowned for its cuisine, with dishes often prepared in unusual combinations like poultry with fruit or meat and seafood.
Located in the northern Basque region, Bilbao is a thriving city surrounded by lush rolling hills with a spectacular coastline a short jaunt from the city center. It’s renowned for its gastronomy, with everything from traditional family-run eateries and Michelin-starred restaurants to pintxo bars, wine bars and cafes, all offering their own take on Basque fare. Its impressive architecture includes everything from historic to modern, like the glistening titanium-clad Guggenheim museum and timeless beauties, including an art nouveau train station, neo-baroque theater and some magnificent cathedrals.
Cordoba is an ancient Andalusian city that boasts world-renowned Moorish architecture and a revitalized riverside lined with cafes and bars. The Mezquita-Catedral is the top attraction, originally a mosque built in the 10th century before becoming a cathedral, and it’s worth a visit on its own as a symbol of the sophisticated culture that was flourishing here over a millennium ago when the city was the capital of Islamic Spain. You’ll find the most authentic charms while strolling the meandering stone paved lanes that lie east, north and west of the tourist center.
Located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Granada is known for spectacular examples of medieval architecture dating to the Moorish occupation, especially the Alhambra, a Moorish masterpiece and huge complex with three palaces and gorgeous gardens with fountains, pools and courtyards. The only preserved palatine city from the Islamic period, it’s considered one of the best examples of Nasrid art. The city also offers many lively public squares with outdoor cafes and restaurants for people watching, as well as the impressive Granada Cathedral and regular traditional flamenco performances.
The exciting Spanish capital boasts gorgeous parks, picturesque boulevards and some of the world’s most famous works of art. In the Museo del Prado you’ll find many impressive Spanish, Flemish and Italian works with thousands of paintings and hundreds of sculptures. Madrid also hosts countless art galleries, theaters, live music venues and many other options for delving into the buzzing nightlife. The culinary scene is world-class, with authentic Spanish tapas a must try – visitors can even take a tapas tour for an especially immersive experience.
The chicest resort town along the Costa del Sol, Marbella lies at the foot of the Sierra Blanca, home to beautiful beaches, including El Fuerte and La Fontanilla, its two main stretches along with more secluded options. For over 60 years, it’s remained unrivaled as the go-to spot for the wealthy, with those who come to see and be seen found on its idyllic sands and exclusive nightclubs. History buffs will find glimpses of its past in medieval ruins, ancient Moorish walls and a palatial town hall, while foodies can dine in Michelin-starred restaurants.
San Sebastian along Spain’s northern coast, part of the Basque Autonomous Community, may be one of the country’s most underrated destinations. While it was named one of Europe’s two cities of culture for 2016, few travelers seem to venture there. It offers something for nearly everyone, including a gastronomic scene that’s been called one of the world’s best, with the second-most Michelin stars per capita, and a very impressive tapas culture, best enjoyed with the local fizzy txakoli wine. The nightlife is hopping and there are gorgeous beaches for sunbathing and surfing too.
Santiago De Compostela
Santiago de Compostela is the final stop on the epic Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail, one of Europe’s most famous pilgrimage routes with over 100,000 people undertaking the journey to reach the resting place of St James every year. Of course, you don’t have to be a pilgrim to enjoy the medieval city, considered one of the most beautiful in all of Galicia. It’s enjoyable just to wander through, strolling the cobbled streets to admire the unique mix of baroque, Romanesque and Gothic buildings and take advantage of the trendy literary cafes hosting local music and poetry readings.

Just south of Madrid, Toledo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, known as the “City of the Three Cultures,” where Christian, Muslims and Jewish faiths all harmoniously co-exist. Dramatically set atop a gorge as a natural fortress with timeless beauty, it’s one of Spain’s most magnificent cities, with its top attractions the monuments and religious centers. Some of its landmarks are more than 800 years old, attracting many to experience its layers of culture and history that are wrapped into winding streets.
The capital of Costa del Sol, Valencia is renowned for its stunning Mediterranean coastline, vibrant festivals and Calatrava architecture, though many say it’s worth the visit just to try the paella alone. The city is the birthplace of one of Spain’s most popular dishes, a mixture of seafood, meat, vegetables, and rice flavored with saffron. At its center is a bullfighting ring, picturesque old buildings and squares, along with an endless array of tapas bars.

Visit La Sagrada Familia
One of the most spectacular architectural masterpieces by Antoni Gaudi, La Sagrada Familia is the world’s largest unfinished Roman Catholic Church, a mix of art nouveau, Gothic and Catalan-modernism styles with construction started in 1882 and continuing to this day. Legend tells that if Gaudi’s design is ever completed, the world will end, so it may be better left undone.
Take on the Caminto Del Rey Hike
If you’re looking for a thrill, the Caminto Del Rey trek is made for adrenaline seekers. The slightly more than three-foot-wide path straddles the side of El Chorro gorge near Ardalas in the Malaga province, nearly 330 feet above the gorge below. It travels for almost two miles and was originally built for workers at a hydroelectric power plant close by.
Finish the Camino Trail
Pilgrims and outdoor adventurers alike shouldn’t miss the chance to hike one of the many Camino pilgrimage trails to Santiago de Compostela, a medieval city that’s one of the most beautiful in all of Galicia and the final resting place of St James. It provides an unforgettable adventure allowing you to walk for several days or several weeks, covering the entire route.
Eat Lots of Tapas and Sangria
The tapas in Spain are unlike anything you’ll find at home, a must-try even better alongside the traditional sangria. The word tapas literally means “lid” or “cover,” allowing you to sample a variety of small plates, from churros to patatas bravas, calamari and everything in between. Experience food sharing the Spanish way at early every restaurant and bar in the country.
Take a Flamenco Lesson in Seville
Dancing is an important part of many traditional Spanish celebrations, and the national dance in Spain is flamenco. While you’ll find flamenco dances in restaurants and bars, Seville is arguably the top spot if you want to immerse yourself in authentic flamenco culture. It offers many fantastic places to catch a live performance and even learn how to dance it yourself.
One of the most unique and beautiful cities, Ronda was carved out of a mountain overlooking a deep gorge and dates all the way back to the 6th century. Located in the heart of Andalusia, it has an authentic Spanish feel and is the home of modern-day bullfighting and also boasts the most well-preserved 13th-century Arabic baths in Spain.
Soak Up the Sunshine in Malaga
Malaga is a region and city along the Costa del Sol, a place so captivating it often appears on Spain holiday brochures. Renowned for its beautiful beaches and plentiful sunshine, it’s ideal for soaking up the sun and the sand. While summer brings the thickest crowds, in the winter you might find your own perfect stretch with few others around.
Become a Culture Vulture in Madrid
The ultimate destination for experiencing cultural attractions, Spain’s capital city is a true paradise for art enthusiasts, home to what’s referred to as the “golden triangle” of art museums. Between the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Museo Nacional Centrode Arte Reina Sofia and the Museo del Prado, you’ll discover one of the world’s most impressive collection of European and Spanish art, including Picasso’s Guernica.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the complex overlooks the entire city of Granada, providing breathtaking views from the ramparts. On the grounds are tranquil courtyards and beautiful gardens with pools and fountains.
Explore the Spanish Islands
The Spanish islands offer a memorable holiday for nearly every type of traveler, from peaceful La Gomera in the Canary Islands and the historical island of Menorca, to Ibiza, famous for its non-stop party atmosphere and the amazing beaches and spectacular resorts of Majorca. Each one provides something unique of its own, making the country’s islands just as diverse as its mainland.
Stroll Through Beautiful Barcelona
Take a stroll through Barcelona to admire both natural and manmade beauty. You’ll find golden beaches just outside the center while its famous architect, Antoni Gaudi left his mark in many places.

Discover Iconic Valencia
Valencia is the capital city of Costa del Sol, considered one of the 12 treasures of Spain. It boasts a famously spectacular stretch of Mediterranean coastline and many impressive sights, including Albufera Park, Mercado Central, Calatrava architecture and the iconic City of Arts and Sciences, an ultra-modern scientific and cultural complex with its buildings fast becoming Valencia’s symbols.
Visit Old Malaga
While many visit Malaga to enjoy some of the country’s most beautiful beaches, in the city itself one can discover rich history that includes ancient ruins scattered throughout along the historic citadels. Pablo Picasso once lived here, and visitors can also visit the world-famous artist’s home and museum to get an in-depth look at his works and his life.
Discover Santiago de Compostella
While Santiago de Compostela may best be known as the final stop on the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage trail, this medieval walled city offers plenty of its own. Considered one of Galicia’s most magnificent cities, experience it by strolling the cobblestone streets lined with an impressive mix of Gothic, Romanesque and baroque buildings. Its cathedral holds the remains of St. James.
Get Lost in the Guggenheim in Bilbao
The industrial city of Bilbao, surrounded by green mountains in northern Spain, is home to the Guggenheim Museum, a contemporary architectural masterpiece that looks like a sculpture with sleek lines and sensual curves, seemingly defying physics. The inside is just as impressive, holding a huge collection of works from greats like Eduardo Chillida, Andy Warhol, Anish Kooper and Jeff Koons.
Take a Stroll Along the Promenade in San Sebastian
Nestled in the corner of northeast Spain, Sebastian is a chic coastal city famous for its cuisine and beautiful beaches.
