Spain travel guide

Beaches · Landmarks · Architectural Buildings
A colorful country known for its relaxed lifestyle, vibrant nightlife, excellent food, and world-famous folklore and festivals, Spain boasts a huge number of World Heritage Sites and other spectacular places to visit. It also deserves its reputation as a beach vacation destination; the Western edge of the Mediterranean Sea is home to some of the world’s top beaches. But Spain’s geography is so much more than just soft, sandy shores. Its landscapes are as diverse as its people, ranging from lush meadows and snowy mountains to huge marshes and sprawling deserts. The countryside bursts with unspoiled villages of timeless beauty and old-world charm, as well as vast and varied nature preserves.

Galicia travel guide

4.6
Landmarks · Beaches · Sacred & Religious Sites
Still largely untouched by international tourism, Galicia offers outstanding seafood and a strong connection to the ancient Celts. Steeped in history, Galicia often feels far removed from the rest of the country, tracing its cultural ancestry to these Northern tribes, who began settling in the area about 3,000 years ago. Celtic traits remained ingrained in everyday life even during the period the region was part of the Roman Empire. Fiercely independent, Galicians take great pride in their cultural heritage and architecture, and well-preserved World Heritage Sites and other attractions are readily found in the region’s towns and villages. Its varied landscapes include spectacular sea views and rugged mountains.
