Our top 5 reasons to visit Spain

1. A rich cultural history

The Phoenicians, Romans, Visigoths and Moors - all have settled in Spain over the centuries, each leaving their own legacy of culture, architecture and cuisine that has enriched the country and its people. This has seen Spain produce iconoclasts such as Picasso, Dali and Gaudi, each of whom has interpreted the world in their own very unique way.

2. Unforgettable food

In Spain, food is the focal point of festivals and family get-togethers as well as a source of regional pride and national celebration. From piquant chorizo and earthy Pata Negra ham to plump Gordal olives and peppery Manchego Viejo cheese, the regions of Spain produce some of the finest ingredients and a cuisine of thrilling contrasts.

3. Varied geography

Spain’s 5,000 miles of coastline make it a magnet for sun worshippers but dig deeper and you’ll also find snow-capped alpine mountains, lush islands, vast arid plains, densely forested valleys and rolling hills. What’s more, Spain’s geographical variety has given its regions distinct identities that make this such a rewarding country to explore.

4. Incredible buildings

From ancient treasures to modern-day structures, Spain showcases some of the world’s most incredible architecture. There’s the breathtaking Alhambra Palace in Granada, Gaudi’s stunning works of art that grace Barcelona and the Guggenheim in Bilbao, hailed as the most important building of its time when it opened in 1997. All of them are unparalleled, all of them are awe-inspiring.

5. Friendly people

Family life is a very important aspect of Spanish society, with members eating together daily, and those who no longer live in the family home returning regularly for big get-togethers. Perhaps it’s the importance of family life that makes the people of Spain so warm and hospitable.
