Spain travel guide

Churches · Beaches · Landmarks
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.

Beaches · Landmarks · Churches
With a dramatic coastline of nearly 600 beaches, a rolling countryside of deep valleys, and sleepy villages that provide a rustic backdrop, a holiday in Asturias can be as varied as you like. Fiercely proud of its ties to an ancient Celtic culture, the local population considers its part of the country the "real" Spain--this region was the only part of the country never completely conquered by the Moors. In many ways, the modern Spanish state grew right out of this unconquerable land. Today, Asturias possesses a huge number of pre-medieval attractions, many dating as far back as the 7th century. Numerous historical attractions scattered across the region’s rural landscape are World Heritage Sites, well-preserved remnants of Spain’s early Christian heritage.
