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.

The countryside bursts with unspoiled villages of timeless beauty and old-world charm, as well as vast and varied nature preserves.
